Tempers Flare During Marshall And Franchon Crews-Dezurn’s Pre-Fight Presser

Savannah Marshall and Franchon Crews-Dezurn came face-to-face in a fiery pre-fight presser in the run up to their undisputed super-middleweight fight on July 1st, 2023, from the AO Arena, Manchester.

Crews-Dezurn puts her WBO, WBA, WBC and IBF belts on the line, but is considered the underdog against Marshall.

The latter is looking to bounce back from her defeat to Claressa Shields where she lost her WBO middleweight belt.

In doing so, Shields became undisputed at middleweight. Meanwhile, Crews-Dezurn also knows that victory over Marshall will give her the chance to avenge her own loss to Shields.

The tempers flared as both Marshall and Franchon exchanged personal digs in a fight that promises spectacular fireworks.

In chief support, Natasha Jonas could be a two-weight world champion, as she faces Kandi Wyatt for the vacant IBF welterweight title.

With that being said, here were the key quotes. 

Key Quotes

Marshall: “No one else wants to promote you.

Crews-Dezurn: “Don’t ever play with me or my name. All you do is talk about Claressa [Shields] because you lost. 

Marshall: “No one knew who you were until you called me out.”

Crews-Dezurn: “You better kiss my feet and be happy that I gave you an opportunity.”

Crews-Dezurn: “I’m better than you. I’m more versatile than you. I’m more diverse than you. You never had competition over here in the UK. Claressa took your soul. I’m here to close the casket. 

Marshall: “No one asks about Franchon Crews.”

Marshall: “She’s undisputed champion for a reason. She’s strong, she’s tough. She uses her strength. She uses her weight. She’s very unorthodox and she’s a pressure fighter.”
