Savannah Marshall and Claressa Shields met up face-to-face and argued for the American’s triumphant UK debut.

Shields beat Ema Kozin in Cardiff to win her IBF, WBA, and WBC middleweight titles. This puts Shields one step closer to Marshall for the WBO title.
Marshall mockingly yawned, pretending to fall asleep during Shields’ performance. They then rowed afterward.

Marshall warned, “If you do that against me, then I’ll wipe the floor with your feet.”

Shields shouted, “I’m afraid of you.” You didn’t arrive in America. “I came here!”

Marshall: “Wind your Neck In.”

Shields: Shields, “I’m chasing after you.”
Marshall: “People were leaving [during your fight]!” It was embarrassing.

Shields said that Marshall is the girl she wants. This is why I’m here. She is aware of that.

As Marshall was pushed by Shields, tempers flared and they had to be repelled.

Ben Shalom, promoter, stated: “It is up to me to make it the biggest women’s fight of all times.”

Marshall must defend her belt against Femke Shemans, live on Sky Sports, on March 12th.

Shields had completely dominated Kozin and was close to stopping the fight with her quick-fire punches, body shots and kicks.

Shields was able in the final rounds to give up her defense and go after the knockout, but Kozin fought on.

Shields stated, “I think there were plenty of instances where the referee should’ve stopped it,”

“I’m proud to say that I am an A-. “The only thing I did not do was to get the damn knockout!”

“She took six, seven and eight shots without responding. “I thought that her corner might have stopped it.”
