As Clarissa Shields approaches a potential uber-fight with Savannah Marshall, it’s clear both women have meaning for words.
The undefeated American has had some memorable moments on and off the phalanx.
Here are some of Wolverine’s biggest offers…
“I smell sarcasm,” Shields said of his February matchup with Marshall. “I don’t have any serious feelings for her.
“She said it because someone was there. But she didn’t feel it.
“She’s not scared. But she’s lying to herself. I know she’s lying too.
“She might have the power to punch. But can Cozin hit me? There’s a difference between speed and IQ.
“She’s going to be worse than Cozin because I don’t like her.
“She was so rude.
“It’s a sign of weakness.
“No Olympic medals? A heavyweight? Belt? Please. Stop messing with me,” she continued.
“Everyone thinks I’m a ‘GWOAT’. I’m here to prove it.
“It’s hard for me not to respect people.
“I’m not impressed with any of his fights. She fought a welterweight with a week’s notice.
“They gave him easy opponents. She had a few knockouts. It satisfied his ego. »
“Congratulations, that’s what you should be doing,” Shields said sky sports After Marshall’s victory over Femke Hermans on Saturday.
“I said she’d do it with Femke. I’m not Femke Hermans, I’m not Hannah Rankin, I’m not one of those girls she fights against.
“Despite all the punch she has, I’m sorry to tell you that if that’s what I had to expect, it’s going to be a disaster.»
” She is [Marshall] Will have problems with me, she definitely won’t knock me down.
“It didn’t take him a big hit in the ring against me. It took a lot of time.
“Femke managed to make her miss, I was 10 times faster than Femke, so what do you think I would do?»
Shield…its dynamic method
“I have 110 different game plans to make sure I excel in every game.
“If boxing doesn’t work, I punch. If I have to mix everything? Should I be like Muhammad Ali or Mike Tyson? I know how to change things.
I’m like “her” Ali. I am a Muhammad Ali woman because I can speak my mind 100% every day.
“I love boxing. Not only do I love training, but boxing and winning. I’m a boxing fan. So when it comes to what people want to see, I love it.
“I’m like ‘she’ Ali. I’m a Muhammad Ali woman because I can speak my mind 100% every day. And I’m a workhorse. I train very, very hard. And I love people.»
“I’m a big, strong woman and I train against men every day. I grew up training with men in the gym.
“People might say, ‘It’s a girl’. I don’t know what would happen in the UK if girls only train with girls, but I hardly train women because I screw them up.
“When I train with people? If they blink, they wake up. They fall from body blows. They get hurt.
“When I train with guys, we train for three minutes. Those guys are standing there trying to fight me.
“The girls were holding me, covering me, trying to survive, they weren’t here to win. They meant: ‘I played 10 rounds with GWOAT’.
“It’s hard to knock down someone who just wants to survive. It’s easier to catch someone actively swiping.
“If we put gloves on and fight, there is no woman in this world who can beat me. I’ve accomplished a lot.
“A woman can beat me the day I stop working hard. I’m working hard in the gym and doubting myself is stupid. For me, I know I’m unbeatable. You can let me in with anyone. »
“If you can do it in Flint, you can do it anywhere.
“I don’t care where I’m going. People tell me, ‘Are you going to Albuquerque or Detroit? It’s dangerous…’
“I told them, ‘I’m from Flint.
“The Flint mentality? We grew up watching our backs instinctively. We knew what it would be like if someone tried to catch you. We were always ready to fight.
“Flint put it on me. »
“Everyone keeps saying I can’t fight. They don’t want me on TV and they don’t respect women’s boxing.
“But I also turned pro with two Olympic gold medals, which is something no other American boxer has ever done. And just like that, I gained a lot of respect. »
