In less positive news for Katie Taylor, she has been knocked off the top of DAZN's pound-for-pound rankings by Claressa Shields, after the American's defeat of Savannah Marshall on Saturday.

"Shields now occupies the position due to the fight," said DAZN in a statement. "One that she was once considered an underdog in, going her way without any doubt surrounding it.


"Where Taylor was pushed close by Serrano earlier this year, Shields was able to dominate Marshall for lengthy periods despite the Brit rallying late on.

"Shields, a fighter who carries the GWOAT moniker, is finally back in the gloried position and based on her most recent performance, it will take a special boxer to oust her as number one."
