Savannah Marshall, Claressa Shields Engage In War Of Words Before Potential 2022 Rematch

Savannah Marshall and Claressa Shields will go toe to toe against each other again, this time as pro fighters, in early 2022.

Eddie Hearn has already given a green signal for the super fight and both boxers are poised for the clash as well.

After Marshall beat Lolita Muzeya in two rounds to retain her WBO middleweight title on Saturday night, Shields sent a video message to her.

“See you next year, girlie. I’ll show you a real champion,” the boxer-come-MMA star said.
Marshall also had a response to her colleague.

“What a load of crap! Claressa couldn’t last two minutes with me, let alone two rounds,” the WBO champ said.

Shield and Marshall share bad blood that dates back to 2012 when they first boxed as amateurs. Marshall defeated her via decision.

They have never fought since turning pros and both have progressed exponentially in respective careers, remaining unbeaten so far.

They will be on the same cards when they fight on December 11 in the UK.

Their opponents have yet to be decided.

Shields has been enjoying herself in the MMA industry lately, having won on her debut and now preparing for a second showdown. She is under contract at the Professional Fighters League where she’s scheduled to share the cage with Abigail Montes on October 27.
