Savannah Marshall Signs A Multi-Fight Deal With The PFL

Savannah Marshall has signed a deal with the PFL as she joins her rival Claressa Shields in the process.

The new multi-fight deal will see Marshall balance her boxing career alongside the PFL with the undisputed super-middleweight champion’s debut expected in 2024.

She joins the likes of Francis Ngannou, Amanda Serrano, Jake Paul and of course Shields, in crossing the street to the MMA world.

“I couldn’t have missed the opportunity and the PFL is one of the most innovative sports organisations in the world and to be fighting alongside Kayla Harrison, Amanda Serrano, you’ve also got Jake Paul. It’s an incredible opportunity and I’m thrilled that the PFL wanted me to be a part of it,” Marshall said

The deal throws up an intriguing dynamic that could see Marshall facing Shields in a combat fight once again.

During their professional encounter in boxing, Shields beat Marshall via a unanimous decision.

“That’s the plan. I’m not stupid and I can see why they were interested in me, from the response that me and Claressa got in the ring.
“So that’s definitely on the cards. It doesn’t look like a rematch in the ring is coming off, so I’ve had to chase her into another sport,” Shields

Unlike Shields, however, Marshall does not have an MMA record. Shields is 1-1 in the sport, while Marshall cannot afford to overlook her next opponent. 

Shadasia Green is the mandatory for her, as Marshall must defend all her belts which she required from Franchon Crews-Dezurn.

However, if Marshall can overcome Green, then the future does look promising.
