Claressa Shields Calls For Savannah Marshall Rematch In America

In her latest call to action, super middleweight boxer Savannah “The Silent Assassin” Marshall (13-1, 10 KO’s) returned to the win column in a major way. She accomplished this by winning a majority decision over reigning undisputed 168-pound champion Franchon Crews-Dezurn. Unsurprisingly, undisputed middleweight champion Claressa “T-Rex” Shields (14-0, 2 KO’s) was quick to throw down a challenge to Marshall.

“If Savannah comes to the USA, I will fight her at whatever weight she wants to fight at. Come to America; I already came over here and I beat her up already. From what I saw tonight, if she comes to America for the rematch, because that’s what she wants oh so badly, she is going to get rocked in Detroit. She is going to get beat up in America; That is what is going to happen.”


The Silent Assassin was fortunate to get the shot at Crews-Dezurn because she had lost her previous match to Shields. That was Marshall’s first attempt at becoming an undisputed champion. There was talk of a rematch in the aftermath but the fight never came to fruition. Marshall heard that it was due to financial reasons while Shields was unwilling to fight The Silent Assassin in her own backyard again.

T-Rex has remained very vocal, both about her willingness to rematch Marshall and her need for it to happen in America, Their first fight was entertaining and a do-over would likely be warmly welcomed by the fans. So it will be interesting to see if the two undisputed champions can make it work on this go around.
