An official announcement will come “after the July 4th vacation.”
Outdoors of a possible rematch between Katie Taylor and Amanda Serrano, that is the largest struggle ladies’s boxing has to supply.
Shields (12-0, 2 KO) is a three-division champion who’s by no means misplaced greater than two rounds on any single scorecard, and it seemed like she’d reached the “no worlds left to overcome” stage of her profession when former novice conqueror Marshall (12-0, 10 KO) started demolishing Shields’ former opponents one after one other.
As unparalleled as Shields has been up to now, Marshall has confirmed herself among the many most fearsome punchers in ladies’s boxing. None of her final eight opponents have survived past seven rounds, and an excellent chunk of these have been straight-up knockouts versus mercy stoppages.
This has the potential to be each a pivotal and vastly entertaining struggle, so we’ll let you recognize as quickly as we get official affirmation.
