Franchon Cruz-Dzorn, the undisputed world super bantamweight champion, called for a fight with Britain’s Savannah Marshall.
But Crews-Dezurn insists conditions must be right for her to travel to the UK to face the North East Star.
“I have no problem, especially seeing the success of this all-female card and the reception from the fans and how the UK supports women’s boxing,” Cruz-Dzorn said. sky sport. So of course I would be open to that.
“As long as the conditions are right, as long as the money is right, of course.
“I am a global woman, I am a world champion and I feel comfortable wherever I go.”
Crews-Dezurn was ringside at the O2 Arena to watch Clarissa Shields’ undisputed bout with Marshall in October.
“I was in the front row and then I went to the ring and called [Marshall] Dzorn Crews said.
“He’s also a very worthy opponent. She’s strong and she has experience. But I went straight to his front door to tell him I was willing and able to fight you.
“But don’t try to deceive me when I bring all the marbles to the table. Give me diligence and respect as an undisputed champion, which gives you the opportunity to become a champion again after you lose your belt.”
“We have tried to continue this fight.”
Marshall had a famous rivalry with Shields dating back to their fight over a decade ago as an amateur. Crews-Dezurn also boxed Marshall when they were amateurs. Marshall beat her 14-12 in the Olympic test event in London 2011, though Crews-Dezurn questions that result.
“There’s a reason she didn’t say my name. There’s a reason she beats around the bush about it.” [fight]insisted the American.
I fought it in the UK as an amateur. They held the Olympic test event at the ExCel Center and I was beating him by two points before the last lap and then realizing I was down by two points at the end. “
Crews-Dezurn will likely defend her Undisputed Championship against Hanna Gabriels, the former Unified Super Bantamweight Champion, in March. Gabriel holds the light and heavyweight belts and will drop to 168 pounds to challenge for the undisputed crown.
“I feel like this is just the beginning, I’ve climbed to the top of a mountain. Now I’m ready to move on,” Crews-Dezurn said.
But this means that the window for combat with Marshall is shrinking. His final message to the Brit: “At the end of the day, it’s my show, it’s my car. I’m driving it now. I’m here. Make it worth it. We can do it.”
