According to the Journal de Montreal, White’s company Zuffa Boxing will be the promoters of Claressa Shields vs Marie-Eve ​​Dicaire.

Shields vs Dicaire was initially due to take place on May 9 with a different promoter, but plans were scrapped by the coronavirus pandemic.

Now, the undisputed WBA, WBC, IBF and WBO super-welterweight title fight has found a new home.

White previously explained on the BT Sport Boxing Show: back in September: “The world of boxing hasn’t been able to do what I’ve been able to do [in MMA] over the last 20 years.

“If they can’t do things when the world is normal, you can’t expect them to do things when the world is crazy.”

Regarding his own interest in entering the sport, he said: “Yep, I peaked under the hood a lot there for the last year.

“Looked at different things and I said, ‘I don’t know man, I don’t know if this is fixable.’

“Funny enough, since the pandemic I’ve been looking at other options too.

“And we’ll probably have something to announce here soon. Yeah [it is in the world of boxing].

“When it’s time, I’ll let you know, I’m not ready yet.

“But [it’ll be] in the next couple of weeks.”
