Let's Be Clear: An open conversation with championship boxer and Olympic gold medalist Claressa Shields

Here's your chance to pick the brain of one of the best female boxers in the world.

"Let's Be Clear" is all about transparency. WKYC has a clear, mobile newsroom that we're taking across the state to talk to those making headlines in Ohio. Whether you agree with the guest, disagree, or are a fan of them, we know you have questions for them.

Thursday's edition of Let's Be Clear brough us a special treat, with boxer Claressa Shields joining WKYC's Will Ujek in our mobile studio. You can watch the full interview in the player above.

One of the best female fighters in the world, the 24-year-old Shields won two Olympic gold medals before turning professional in late 2016. She is currently undefeated at 9-0, and recently became the undisputed women's middleweight champion with a unanimous decision over Germany's Christina Hammer.

Besides being an amazing athlete, Shields is also using her platform to fight child hunger, and was in her home state of Michigan earlier this month for an event with the Real Love Convoy. The organization uses a trio of vehicles to bring free dairy products to kids across America. According to the Greater Cleveland Food Bank, roughly one out of every five Northeast Ohio children lives in a "food insecure" household.
