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!

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?"

It's on! See you all tomorrow night.
Mayer on points, Shields on points
Just tuned in and my heart jumped, I thought Shields was already fighting Marshall. Thankfully it's just Dubois vs Koleva.
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.

Marshall walking now with England's Jill Scott
When those scores were read out the concern on Shield's face as she turned to the MC was telling, she must have heard there was controversy in the scores just before her fight (though I rewatched that including the round I originally missed and had it 95-95 myself).

Then he announced "the GWOAT" and order was restored, 96-94 on my card I thought Shields won every round in the first half and I gave her the 8th too to seal it. A great fight though but at last the business is settled, questions answered and she'll hear about the loss in the amateurs no more.

Baumgardner, Shields & Marshall in attendance

Mayer obviously still sulking

This might be the most honest and humble interview given immediately after a loss in a big main event fight that I've seen. Poor Savannah, absolutely devestated as per the video title. The interviewer trying his best to give her excuses but she wouldn't take them instead and I quote "Look I thought she won, I did think she won...........the right woman won" In the ring immediately afterwards Marshall even acknowledged that Shields was the GWOAT.

Gracious in defeat very nice to see, I think that's it for Marshall now but I assume she was paid well for this one. I wish her the very best.
