As long as the cash is correct, Claressa Shields has no drawback going through Savannah Marshall
Within the skilled ranks, undisputed tremendous welterweight champion Claressa “T-Rex” Shields (11-0, 2 KO’s) is certainly an enormous fish. She has claimed belts over three weight courses, turn out to be undisputed champion in two divisions and is at present the undisputed tremendous welterweight champion. Shields was additionally the primary girl in historical past to headline a Showtime Boxing telecast. Whilst an novice, T-Rex was a sensation as a consequence of successful back-to-back gold medals within the Olympics.
Having completed all this, it’s not laborious to see why Shields calls for respect within the boxing world. One strategy to reveal that respect is within the measurement of the checks minimize for the struggle purse. Right here is the place T-Rex is discovering a significant disconnect in penning a bout with WBO World middleweight champion Savannah “The Silent Murderer’ Marshall (10-0, 8 KO’s). Marshall, 30, has been honing her skilled abilities for 4 years now.
Regardless of being the one particular person to greatest Shields within the amateurs, The Silent Assassin turned down the chance to fight Shields in 2018. On the time, Marshall and her crew felt that she wanted to endure a bit extra improvement. Presently nevertheless, they’re all very assured that they may derail the T-Rex freight practice. If something, The Silent Assassin has been told that now it is the undisputed champion that is avoiding her.
THE PRICE AIN’T RIGHT
Naturally, with boxing being the small fraternity/sorority that it’s, Shields shortly received wind of what Marshall has been saying. For her half, the struggle not being made had zero to do with hesitance or concern. Not being one to carry her tongue, T-Rex was solely too joyful to share her half of the story with Pep Talk UK.
“Should you go watch the Eve Dicaire struggle, I advised him [Eddie Hearn] 750K, I’ll get in there and smoke Marshall any day, any time any day. The worth that he got here at us with up at first was trash! Like, I haven’t been paid 150K since I don’t know, 5 fights in the past, That’s the supply that he made for the struggle up at first. It was at 150K. After I beat Marie Dicaire, after he clearly heard me say on nationwide TV once I fought pay-per-view, 750.
“He simply began getting the cash up and up and up. I haven’t fought for a handbag below 350K in boxing since even Marie Eve Dicaire, Ivana Habazin, and he simply got here with a proposal of 150. So he should not need Savannah Marshall to get her ass kicked as a result of I mentioned both match that or include a greater quantity than I mentioned. He simply began getting his act collectively.”
When it comes proper right down to it, Claressa Shields has no real respect for Marshall, her skilled or novice accomplishments. Maybe her stage of annoyance with the scenario stems instantly from this lack of reverence. Alongside this line of pondering, Shields has typically poked enjoyable that Marshall owns her former vacated WBO strap. Subsequently, with regards to The Silent Murderer, T-Rex needs the bout purely for the fun of placing her paws on Marshall.
“I cant wait to struggle her and beat her up and shut her up. It’s not about me combating her as a result of she isn’t that good. In the event that they wish to make her out to be this knockout artist they will, however they’ll be very disenchanted when me and her struggle as a result of I’m going to outclass her. I’m going to out-strength her, I’m going to out-speed her, I’m going to out-skill her and she or he must take care of her telling all these lies for all these years.
After which perhaps she is going to come to actuality and perhaps she’ll turn out to be a greater fighter after. However proper now her crew is simply feeding her shit, blowing smoke up her ass and making her assume she is best than what she is and she or he goes to should take care of this loss and develop from it I assume, hopefully.”
Given the size and ferocity of this rivalry, let’s hope that the cash is sorted out in brief order and the bout is put collectively very quickly! It’d be a disgrace if this one didn’t occur or got here nicely previous its sell-by date.
