Lauren Price: What next for Wales’ 14th world champion boxer

Price has made clear she now hopes to fight in the Cardiff City Stadium and Principality Stadium, with Shalom believing stadium fights are “definitely” on the cards for Price in the future.

“Yeah, definitely, even if it’s not next, you know, in a few years, that’s the dream,” Price added.

“For me to have the backing like that in my first world title fight on Saturday night, I think it just goes to show that the fans come out and supported me and my following is only going to get bigger.

“I want to sell out stadiums and I am sure I will get there.”

Price believes she can beat anyone at welterweight and while Shalom is happy to let her try and unify the ultra-competitive 147 lbs division, he says he is already potentially eyeing a showdown between Price and American legend Clarissa Shields.

Shields, nicknamed the GWOAT (the greatest woman of all time) is a double-Olympic champion and three-weight world champion as a professional, having never lost in the paid ranks.

“She’s got the ability to dominate at welterweight but don’t forget in the Olympics she boxed at middleweight and at middleweight you’ve got Savannah Marshall and Clarissa Shields,” Shalom added.

“I would feel confident about her fighting Clarissa Shields. With another time and building her up correctly, that could be a fight between the two best women’s boxers around.

“It would be the ultimate test for Lauren.”
