After losing her middleweight title, Savannah Marshall is ready to claim gold in another division. The Brit heads to super middleweight to face Franchon Crews-Dezurn for the latter’s undisputed super middleweight championship on July 1. 

The fight takes place at the AO Arena in Manchester and airs on ESPN+ in the U.S. and Sky Sports in the U.K. This bout was intended to be the co-main event under Liam Smith vs. Chris Eubank Jr. 2, but Smith backed out due to an injury. 

Marshall is a former WBO middleweight champion. “The Silent Assassin” stopped Hannah Rankin in 2020 for the belt and successfully defended it three times. She last fought in October, losing to Shields in a bid to become the undisputed champ at the O2 Arena.

What has been said?

"Boxing is not a team sport. You have support from your coaches. Yes, your training partner's beside you, but when it's you and I in the ring, or you and whoever in the ring, it's just you two," the American said.

"When you lose, you could throw the blame. When I lose, they throw me away."

Reacting to Crews-Dezurn's claim she'd be 'easy work', Marshall said: "That's a lie."

The Briton is determined to be a champion again. "I want it more than ever," she said. "I'm craving it.

"I can't walk away after that loss. I can't walk away with nothing. I want the belts. I want to be known as a champion."
