Boxing champion Savannah Marshall set for PFL debut

Savannah Marshall’s plan to dive into MMA has been apparent for almost a year. Now she has a date and location set for her first competition.

The PFL announced Tuesday that Marshall (0-0) will headline 2024 PFL Europe 2 on June 8 at Utilita Arena in Newcastle, England, although an opponent for Marshall’s debut has not been determined.

Marshall, 32, is the IBF, WBA, WBO, and The Ring women’s super middleweight champion. She has a 13-1 professional boxing record, with her lone career loss against fellow PFL fighter Claressa Shields. She most recently competed in July 2023 when she won a majority decision vs. Franchon Crews Dezurn.
