The final press conference before Saturday’s fight between Claressa Shields and Savannah Marshall was filled with tense moments but also amusing exchanges of words between the two champions.
London breathes boxing and the visit of Claressa, champion of the World Boxing Association (WBA), IBF and WBC, to face the local, who is WBO champion, promises a great fight on the ring of the O2 Arena.
The rivalry between the two was more notorious than ever during their interventions in which they promised victory, imitated each other in a jocular way and made the expectations for the fight continue to rise.
Between laughs and comments, the two made it clear that their goal for the weekend is to win, but also to prove that one is better than the other in a rivalry that has been going on for years since the amateur days of boxing.
Now they just have to step on the scales and have their last face-to-face this Friday to get ready for the fight, which promises to be exciting and full of strategy.
