Flint native Claressa Shields is being honored for her knockout career in the ring.

She's being inducted into the U.S. Boxing Alumni Hall of Fame in December.

Shields has won two Olympic gold medals in the sport and is just six fights into her professional career.

The inaugural class inducted last year included Muhammad Ali and Evander Holyfield.
