Boxing News: “You put your whole country down in 2012,” Claressa Shields scolds Savannah Marshall

Boxing News: For ten years, Claressa Shields and Savannah Marshall have been building up to their confrontation.

Shields compared her successes with Marshall’s going all the way back to their amateur careers when the boxers faced off in The Gloves Are Off.

Savannah Marshall was the subject of high anticipation leading up to the 2012 Olympic Games. However, Shields won the first of her two Olympic gold medals in the same classification while she lost her opening match in London.

“Are you angry because you never won the Olympic gold medal?” Shields said. “You should be. You let your whole country down in 2012. You lost the first day and you were the favourite. You should feel terrible.”
