Harrington & Karim Clash For WBF Title On Shields vs. Gabriels Card

(May 23, 2023) – Two promising local prospects, Marlon Harrington and Gheith Karim, will clash for the vacant World Boxing Federation (WBF) North America Super Welterweight title on June 3 at the Little Ceasars Arena in Detroit, Michigan, USA.

Headlining the card will be WBF Womens World Middleweight champion Claressa Shields defending her title against Costa Rica┬┤s Hanna Gabriels.

Hard-punching Detroit native Harrington, 8-1 (7), is looking to rebound from the first setback of his career, as he lost a decision to 12-1-2 Marquis Taylor last October, and he is not taking the easy road.

In Iraqi-born Karim, 9-0 (3), residing in nearby Dearborn, he will be facing an undefeated southpaw full of confidence going into his first championship fight.

For both men it is a big chance to make a name for themselves on a huge stage, in front of a big crowd, leading into one of the sports best boxers in Shields defending her WBF world title.

Promoted by Salita Promotions, the show will be broadcast live by DAZN.
