A great weekend of boxing begins with this one at the O2 Arena in London, Claressa Shields defends her 160lb WBC, WBA & IBF crown against former amateur rival and reigning WBO world champion Savannah Marshall. The two unbeaten fighters will put it all on the line this Saturday night, someone's 0 must go!

Have no idea who Savannah Marshall is, but I hope she beats the crap out of Shields. I've seen Shields fight a few times and if she'd just didn't open her mouth with all that trash talk, she may be more likeable to me, but she can't keep her pie-hole closed and there's no telling what's going to come out of it when it's open.

Not feeling very patriotic but I just can't stand Marshall whenever she speaks, the attempted trash talk with Shields after a different fight earlier this year wound me up more than it did Shields. I'll be tuning in and hoping Shields gets it done. And think she will, inside distance.

We seem to share the same perspective, but with different fighters. And speaking of women boxers-----what the hell is up with them only fighting 2 minute rounds.

I have respect for MMA with their women fighters going the same distance as their male counterparts in either 3 x 5 minute or 5 x 5 minute rounds in the big fights.

Only going 2 minute rounds cheapens the sport in my opinion.

I just looked up Marshall's record on BoxRec and she seems to carry some pop to her punches with a 12-0-0 record and 10 of them by KO. Not sure of the quality of opposition she's faced, but that's a nice KO ratio and almost as many KO's as Shields has fights under her belt.

Shields record reflects a boxer with not much power with 12-0-0 and 2 KO's to her credit. Everything else was by decision.

I could only find 2 common opponents with Shields winning by decision and Marshall taking both out by KO.

I'll go against the current here and say Marshall wins--------------------and I hope she does so by brutal KO........

Undercard presser starts at around 37:00. The co-main at roughly 47:00 and the main event presser at exactly 1:03:00.

Shields "I've been better than you since I was 17"
Marshall "Why didn't you beat me then?"
Shields sounding like Det. Carter in Rush Hour "Didn't I win the Olympics?"

A disgusted Mikaela Mayer storms out after suffering her first professional defeat. Boos rang out as the split decision was announced in favour of Baumgardner, I missed one round but if I gave that to Baumgardner too my card would have read 96-94 Mayer. Congrats to the champ anyhow, she's come here twice and done the business now. She's speaking to Sky Sports right now

So she will not give Mayer a rematch, there was a tentative hug after the scores were announced but the champion's confirming now that she will seek out the last remaining strap in the division. I hope the next fight has a clear winner, Shields arrived with Spencer Fearon in a Rolls Royce and a glittering gown but she's now gloved up and ready to go, it's almost time

So Mayers got robbed.? Shields being up against the home fighter will probably get robbed or a victim of the infamous British stoppage.

I don't wanna use the R word but I thought Mayer won it and I wasn't umming and arring over it either, seemed pretty straightforward. The judge who gave it to Mayer did so by a margin of 7-3. Undefeated record gone, belts gone, hopes of regaining the titles, gone since Baumgardner says she won't do it again.

I am not watching this card busy with other stuff. But majority opinion on twitter seems to be it was a close fight. And also murmurings that Sky Sports commentary was heavily biased in favour of Mayer because she is part of their commentary team.

Actually having listened to Mayers commentary she is a way better commentator then the likes of Carl Froch and Tony Bellew.
