Claressa Shields claims she once punched Eddie Hearn

Claressa Shields has reiterated her callout of Savannah Marshall and sent a message to the Brit’s promoter Eddie Hearn.

The American won Olympic gold in 2012 and 2016, capping off a magnificent amateur career in which she lost only one fight – to Marshall.

Now, she is 10-0 and already a three-weight world champion in the pro ranks, and wants to avenge that defeat.

“Savannah Marshall this, Savannah Marshall that. Come on, I’m tired of talking about it,” Shields said after watching Mashall win the WBO middleweight title on Saturday.

“I’ve been wanting smoke with her, she knows what’s up. Y’all know what’s up.

“Everybody from the UK, all y’all can do is talk s***. Y’all can’t do nothing else but that.

“Y’all can’t talk about, she boxes better than me. All y’all can say is, ‘Oh, she beat you when you were in the amateurs, she beat you eight years ago.’

“That’s all y’all can say, that’s it.”

Shields also had an interesting message for Marshall’s promoter Eddie Hearn.

Hearn promoted one of Shields’ early bouts, but the pair have not worked together since.

Regardless, Shields added: “Eddie Hearn knows I told him, ‘You get me a fight with Savannah Marshall, I’ll love you forever.’

“I told him that to his face. He said, ‘I’m gonna take your word on that.’

“I said, ‘I’m telling you, you get me the fight with Savannah Marshall, I’ll love you forever.’

“And then I seen him at the airport and I punched him in the gut.

“A little tap tap, but I put a little bit on it. Not a whole lot, just enough to make him feel it.

“Listen, I like Eddie Hearn, he’s cool dude. I think he’s got a lot of personality, I like the dude.

“But when it comes to boxing he’ll sell you a wet dream and I ain’t got time for that s***.”
