Shields Out for Blood

You can hear it in her interviews and face-to-face conversations with Marshall. Shields is fuming. And she wants nothing more than to wipe the smirk off of Marshall’s face.

The self-professed “Greatest Woman of All Time” (GWOAT) has achieved everything in boxing: A pair of Olympic gold medals and multiple world titles in the amateur and professional scene. But she has yet to beat the one woman who defeated her.

Shields enters this fight as almost a pick’em, but many will argue she should be favored. The American will be faster and better technically. She may have “pillow fists,”, but Shields can wear down Marshall by constantly attacking her and putting her on the backpedal. That’s her biggest advantage here and why she’s worth betting on online.

Marshall in for Fight of Life

On the flip side, Marshall is one of the hardest hitters in women’s boxing. All but two of her bouts have ended in a knockout victory for her. Marshall may not appear to be a power puncher, but she is big and packs plenty of power in her punches. Her straight right in particular could be a fight-ender. And she hits hard to the body, too.

However, most of Marshall’s opponents have been outmatched. Knocking out a boxer with 55 losses on their record or an African foe with a padded record against the local competition is one thing. But Marshall will need more than the power to dispatch Shields. She’ll have to box her lights out.

Marshall is also going against a boxer who is not only unintimidated by her but someone who wants to take her head off. Shields experienced the pain of being “robbed” against Marshall. She’ll come for blood, thus Marshall will have to shore up her defenses.

Shields vs Marshall Head-to-Head

Shields vs Marshall Prediction

Shields will not be denied this time. She should be the favorite on the online sports betting odds, but a few factors favor Marshall here. The most notable will be the home advantage. Marshall is the local favorites so you can expect the crowd to cheer for everything she does. This could sway the judges, especially when some rounds will be closed.

There is even a good chance this fight ends in a draw (+1000). Shields has plenty working against her, but she is the better boxer by far. She should be able to touch up Marshall for most of the fight. Marshall’s height will also work against her as Shields will pound her body and expose her.

Still, we don’t see this fight being finished. The over 8½ rounds is a nice bet to parlay and the “fight goes to a decision” prop (-225) is another good one to bet.
