Video: Savannah Marshall’s massive KO sets up megafight with Claressa Shields

WBO middleweight champion Savannah Marshall (12-0, 10 KOs) once again showcased her vaunted punching power on Saturday in Newcastle, England.

Towards the end of round three, Marshall hurt Belgian challenger Femke Hermans (12-4, 5 KOs) with her lead left hand. With Hermans struggling to keep her balance, she was backed into a corner where Marshall would uncork a vicious left hook that had the crowd on its feet and knocked Hermans off her feet. There was no chance of her getting up within 10 seconds and the fight was called off.

Watch the video below:

It’s the first time that Hermans has ever been knocked out and it was a tremendous shot.
