Savannah Marshall Impresses In Mma Debut, Calls Out Claressa Shields For Rematch

Savannah Marshall showcased her MMA prowess in a thrilling debut at PFL Europe in Newcastle, securing a first-round victory over Mirela Vargas. Marshall, a renowned boxing champion who defeated Franchon Crews-Dezurn to become the undisputed super-middleweight champion, transitioned seamlessly to the cage.

Under the watchful eye of long-time rival Claressa Shields, Marshall proved her mettle by weathering early takedowns and unleashing a series of powerful strikes that led to Vargas’ defeat. The atmosphere was electric as Marshall’s transition from boxing to MMA captivated fans at the event.

In a post-fight callout that echoed across the arena, Marshall challenged Shields, seeking a rematch in the PFL. Shields, who has also ventured into MMA, accepted the challenge, setting the stage for a highly anticipated showdown between two fierce competitors.

Their boxing history, including a memorable clash at The O2 in the United Kingdom, adds an extra layer of intrigue to the potential MMA rematch. Shields, a four-weight world champion, is scheduled to compete for the WBC title in Detroit before potentially facing Marshall, highlighting the magnitude of their rivalry.

Marshall’s rapid adaptation to the MMA world, with training alongside UFC champion Tom Aspinall, signals a new chapter in her combat sports journey. The collision course with Shields promises a thrilling spectacle for fight fans eagerly anticipating the clash of these two talented athletes.
