marshal of the savannah retained his WBO middleweight title and moved closer to a seismic unification bout with Shields of Claressa by knocking out Femke Hermans on Saturday.

Hartlepool fighter Marshall dropped her Belgian challenger in the final second of round three, flooring Hermans with a short left hook to end the contest, retain her title and remain undefeated at 12-0 with 10 knockouts. Marshall’s victory at Newcastle’s Utilita Arena was watched by Shields, with the American watching from the front row as Marshall handed Hermans the first stoppage loss of the Belgian’s career. Shields, meanwhile, has already gone the distance with Hermans.

A unification bout between Marshall and unified champion Shields is now set to take place this summer, with Boxxer chief Ben Shalom saying “late June, early July” is the target. Marshall told Sky Sports: “Claressa can’t handle my power. I think I badly injured Claressa. Shields replied: “She’s going to have problems with me, and she’s definitely not going to knock me out. Femke got her to miss, and I’m ten times faster than Femke, so what do you think what am I going to do?”

“Congratulations, that’s what she’s supposed to do. I said she would do that against Femke Hermans, but I’m not Femke.

“If that’s what I have to expect, it’s going to be a wipeout.

“I went the distance with Femke four years ago, at the start of my career.

“She’s going to have problems with me, and she’s definitely not going to knock me out.

“She is definitely not [the biggest women’s puncher]. Femke managed to make her miss, and I’m ten times faster than Femke, so what do you think I’m going to do? »

Marshall told Sky Sports: “I am absolutely over the moon.

“Taking nothing away from Femke, I knew if I caught her I would hurt her, [but] I didn’t think she would come out like this.

“I never, ever look for knockouts, they just seem to find me.

“There’s no one else in the way between me and Claressa, it’s me and Claressa in the summer. It’s all about pen and paper now.

“Claressa can’t handle my power. I think I badly injured Claressa. It has to happen here in the northeast.
