Savannah Marshall puts her WBO middleweight title and undefeated record on the line this Saturday as she takes on Femke Hermans.
The women will go head-to-head in a main-event contest at the Newcastle Arena, as Hartlepool fighter Marshall steps into the ring for the first time since October.
Marshall, 30, stopped Lolita Muzeya in the second round on that occasion to improve her record to 11-0 (9 knockouts). It was a seventh consecutive stoppage win for the Briton. Meanwhile, Hermans (12-3, 5 KOs) last competed in July, when the Belgian finished Lili Jumali in the third round.
Marshall is eyeing a seismic clash with fellow champion Claressa Shields, a contest that hinges in part on this Saturday’s headline bout.
