What Record Does Claressa Shields Have? 

Claressa Shields' remarkable copybook was slightly marred by her loss to Savannah Marshall in 2012. But that was while she was in the amateur ranks.

She was a double Olympic gold medallist, having won the middleweight contest in Rio de Janeiro and London. In 2016, she made her professional debut in boxing in Nevada. She beat Franchon Crews-Dezurn, the current super-middleweight champion at that time, by unanimous judges' decision.

The title fight was set for Nikki Adler (defending WBC super-middleweight champion) after two victories brought her next in line. She won via TKO in round 5.

In June 2018, she defeated Hanna Gabriels unanimously to win the vacant WBA and inaugural IBF middleweight titles. That impressive haul added to her collection of trophies. She had one win in both 2019 and in 2020, giving her a professional record of 10-0 (10 wins and 0 losses). Then she stripped the IBF belt from Marie-Eve Dicaire's in March at a Flint fight.

In February, the UK saw its first professional contest. A unanimous decision secured The Ring and WBF middleweight honours. Marshall's WBO belt was left to complete the set. 

What Record Does Savannah Marshall's have? 

She was a gold medallist at the AIBA Women's World Boxing Championships, China, in 2012. In China, she became the first fighter to defeat Shields. Marshall was forced to withdraw from the 2012 Olympics, but in 2014 she won middleweight Commonwealth Gold in Glasgow.

Two years later, her bid for the Olympic title in Brazil was a failure. She signed as a professional fighter under Floyd Mayweather's guidance and won a remarkable twelve-fight winning streak. Eight of those victories were by knockouts or technical knockouts.

She won the vacant WBO title against Hannah Rankin at the SSE Arena by technical knockout and has successfully defended her belt three times.

Who will be on the undercard of Claressa Shields vs Savannah Marshall Title Bout?

Mikaela Mayer takes on Alycia Baumgardner in a thrilling super-featherweight title fight.

Mayer has yet to experience a loss in 17 pro fights. She won five by KO, 12 via decision, and defends The Ring, The WBO, and IBF belts.

Baumgardner defends her WBC/IBO titles for the second time as she seeks to win a seventh consecutive victory.

Lauren Price, Olympic gold medallist and bronze-medal winner Karriss Artingstall, Caroline Dubois, and Lauren Price compete against Timea Belik, Marina Sakharov, and Milena Koleva. These bouts are expected to draw tremendous interest from fans.

Ginny Fuchs - a tough contender and personal friend of Mayer's, fights this weekend. She is an American Olympian who did well in April with a fourth-round knockout against Jennifer Han. Gemma Ruegg will be taking on Ginny Fuchs in a flyweight bout.

Ebonie Jones and Vanessa Caballero, a Spanish featherweight fighter; April Hunter; Argentina's Erica Alvarez; Shannon Ryan from London; Bucha El Quaissi (a Spaniard); and Sarah Liegmann, a young talent; and veteran Bec Connolly will be battling for dominance.
