Via Charles Brun: Women’s unified middleweight champion Claressa Shields is saddened to postpone her undisputed title to WBO champion Savannah Marshall as their bout was supposed to take place last Saturday night in the UK .
The competition has been postponed due to the death of the Queen of England, and rather it will take place; event has been cancelled. Shields & Marshall (12-0, 10 KOs) will now be up against it next month on October 15 in the UK for the middleweight advantage.
According to promoter Dmitry Salita, undefeated IBF, WBA & WBC champion, Shields had to go through a lot, getting ready for the brain-battle and all the workouts she did to prepare for the game. match.
Postponing the game probably won’t change the outcome of the game, as Shields is so much more agile and talented than the 5’11” tall Savannah.
Also, Shields throws more punches, which will make Marshall unmatchably slower than her in that department. For me, this fight has the mismatch written all over.
“She will deal with this like the champion she is. She will rest for a while and rebuild, rethink and will appear on October 15,” promoter Dmitry Salita told Social boxing about Claressa Shields.
“Claressa is obviously very upset. She has to lose weight and went through a long training camp. It’s obviously quite challenging when you mentally and physically prepare yourself for this tough challenge.
“Thousands of kilometers away from home, to be able to enter the ring to perform at such a high level, it was unexpectedly broken. It is obviously very challenging. Claressa is a true professional.
“We have to do the best we can under the circumstances. We understand that the country is grieving. Tomorrow night was supposed to be a celebration of women’s boxing, but clearly, it wasn’t the right time for that.
“The match has been rescheduled, and I believe on October 15 it will be an extraordinary night. There is a deeper story, and it keeps getting longer. All in all, I believe it will turn out for the best.
“The match is at one o’clock, and the fight will not last until the night. [on Saturday], so it will be safe. Shields said.
