These two are vying to become the undisputed middleweight world champion, and a unified titleholder will emerge as the dust clears following fight night.

Claressa Shields’ Betting Outlook vs Marshall

Shields enters this contest as the WBC, WBA, and IBF middleweight world champion. She has previously been undisputed champion two times, and a win this weekend would be her second time garnering that distinction at middleweight specifically.

The banter is heavy ahead of this one as the two have a long-standing history with one another that will culminate in a few days’ time.

The only time Shields has lost in her pugilistic journey was as an amateur to Marshall. The teenage Shields fell to the decorated 21-year-old English boxer by way of decision at the 2012 amateur world championships that Marshall ended up winning outright when she garnered gold.

Now as an undefeated professional who arguably has the best resume of any pro women’s boxer ever, the self-professed GWOAT (greatest woman of all-time) looks to gain a measure of redemption against Marshall.

The former two-time Olympic gold medalist and three-weight world champion faces a heavy-handed KO artist in Marshall, who enters this highly important clash with commensurate professional experience to Shields.

Savannah Marshall’s Betting Outlook vs Shields

Marshall has defended her WBO world middleweight title three times and will have the partisan presence of the ringside audience as she fights at home here. This is Shields’ second time competing in the UK as a pro.

After a decorated amateur run, Marshall made her pro debut on the Mayweather vs McGregor card. So she is no stranger to big stages and being under the bright lights. Marshall has also long been getting in work with her trainer Peter Fury, the uncle of current WBC world heavyweight champion Tyson Fury.

The most anticipated women’s boxing bout of all time will see someone’s 0 finally go. Marshall has the advantage in terms of size and power, while Shields is thought to be the faster fighter and the combatant with the more refined fight IQ.

Claressa Shields vs Savannah Marshall Prediction

This prizefight presents two clear lanes in terms of prop bets for each fighter. For Shields, it would seem likeliest that she would win this via decision, while conversely, Marshall’s likely path seems to be a win by KO or TKO (situated at +275) if she gets her hand raised this weekend.

In terms of valuable prop bets for this fight, I think that the prop bet on this contest going the distance positioned at -250, and Shields winning via decision, which is set at +120, presents strong value. A win by split decision is situated at +650 while a win by unanimous decision is positioned at +175, and I think the former has greater value than the latter. I understand why the UD outcome is so favored considering ten of Shields’ twelve pro wins are unanimous decisions. But I feel like the style of Marshall and the partisan judging presence will lead to an SD.

Pick: Claressa Shields (-110)
