VERONA, N.Y. — Two-time Olympic boxing champion Claressa Shields scored a unanimous 10-round decision over Tori Nelson on Friday night at Turning Stone Casino to retain her women's WBC and IBF super middleweight world titles.

Each of the three judges scored the fight 100-90 for Shields (5-0, 2 KOs), of Flint, Michigan, who was nearly 20 years younger than her opponent. The 41-year-old Nelson (17-1-3, 1 KO), who won a middleweight world title in 2011 but had only fought twice since June 2015, lost for the first time in her career.

The Chainsmokers' Alex Pall Allegedly Caught Cheating by Girlfriend Tori Woodward in CCTV Video

  The Chainsmokers' Alex Pall Allegedly Caught Cheating by Girlfriend Tori Woodward in CCTV Video Alex Pall, the Grammy-winning deejay who is one half of the powerhouse EDM-pop duo The Chainsmokers, found himself in hot water on Tuesday when his now ex-girlfriend Tori Woodward shared photos she alleges are of him kissing another girl. The pictures of Pall’s apparent indiscretion were captured at a residential location by CCTV and posted to Woodward’s Instagram Stories in a series of snaps — each with a series of savage messages thrown his way. “Alex is disgusting. Men are trash. Don’t ever forget it,” Woodward wrote on one of the surveillance shots, which Woodward later accused Pall of reporting to Instagram after it was deleted by the social network site. “They’ll look you in the eyes and tell you they love you. Then destroy you without a second thought,” she captioned another snap, which appeared to show Pall kissing the mystery woman. Reps for Pall and The Chainsmokers did not immediately respond to PEOPLE’s request for comment about the incident, but Woodward — who has dated Pall since February 2014 — claimed this wasn’t the first time he had been unfaithful throughout their long relationship. "Not grace or zeal love only was my call, And if I lose thy love, I lose my all" ???? Three years with my puppydaddy, best friend, sweet boo #iloveyou A post shared by Tori Woodward (@toriwoodward) on Feb 8, 2017 at 7:58pm PST According to Woodward, Pall allegedly gave her excuses for the cheating, but didn’t apologize.

VERONA, N.Y. (AP) - Two-time Olympic boxing champion Claressa Shields scored a unanimous 10-round decision over Tori Nelson on Friday night at Turning Stone Casino to retain her women's WBC and IBF super middleweight world titles.

VERONA, N.Y. (AP) -- Two-time Olympic boxing champion Claressa Shields scored a unanimous 10-round decision over Tori Nelson on Friday night at Turning Stone Casino to retain her women's WBC and IBF super middleweight world titles. Each of the three judges scored the fight

Nelson, of Ashburn, Virginia, took the fight to Shields at the outset, but as the bout wore on the young champion proved to be the more skilled boxer, able to avoid Nelson's big hooks and using her jab to keep her foe at bay.

Nelson did land a sharp body shot in the seventh round as she put Shields on the ropes and landed several more punches, but the 22-year-old Shields, who likes to boast she's the greatest of all-time, managed to dodge most of the hard punches and landed a right hand that stunned Nelson and sent her backward.

In the final round, Nelson was swinging wildly looking for a knockout while Shields methodically landed punches to the head, missing a couple of big ones. The fight ended with a strong left hand from the champion.

Shields pummeled Nikki Adler last August to win the two super middleweight titles. That lopsided fight, Adler's first loss in 17 bouts, was stopped in the fifth round. Shields' combinations left Adler defenseless in a matchup of previously unbeaten boxers.

World Cup leader Marcel Hirscher wins again in slalom

  World Cup leader Marcel Hirscher wins again in slalom Marcel Hirscher is unbeatable in slalom right now, and his World Cup win Sunday finally gave him victory at Wengen. The Austrian star extended his first-run lead to finish 0.93 ahead of Henrik Kristoffersen of Norway in a familiar runner-up spot. Andre Myhrer of Sweden was third, 1.72 back. Hirscher's domination was so complete he also had the fastest time in the second run, 0.34 quicker than Kristoffersen, by attacking his rival's target rather than protecting his lead. "I have been on the limits, especially on the steep part, so everybody is beatable,"The Austrian star extended his first-run lead to finish 0.93 ahead of Henrik Kristoffersen of Norway in a familiar runner-up spot.

VERONA, N.Y. (AP) — Two-time Olympic boxing champion Claressa Shields scored a unanimous 10-round decision over Tori Nelson on Friday night at Turning Stone Casino to retain her women's WBC and IBF super middleweight world titles.

WBO and WBC middleweight champion Christina Hammer (21-0, 9 KOs) watched that bout near the ring, scouting potential opponents. Shields said after her victory Friday night, which was televised live on Showtime, that she could easily go down in weight to face Hammer, who is from Kazakhstan and was there again to watch.

"I think she's pretty scared, to be honest. She's more worried about me than I am her," Shields said after her win. "I can't wait to fight her and show her that she isn't (better than me)."

Shields is the first woman to headline a fight card on premium cable, also doing so in March and again in August on Showtime. She's also the only American, male or female, to win a boxing gold medal since Andre Ward captured one at Athens in 2004. The only other U.S. boxer to win two Olympic gold medals is Oliver Kirk, who took the bantamweight and featherweight titles at the 1904 Olympics in St. Louis.
