Prediction.

There's no comparison for power, and Marshall likely has a better chin, Shields has faster feet, and far faster hands, both fighters judge distance very well, but Marshall's reach advantage could be the difference. Marshall is stronger than Shields, is good at taking centre ring, so Shields is likely to be on the back foot. Shields has the better reflexes, and is much defensively better. Both fighters are offensively brilliant, but if the fight is in the pocket, that favours Marshall heavily. Marshall has improved a lot in recent years, Sheilds proved how good she is against Hammer, but I don't think she's improved much since then, she has been dominant in her last few fights, her opposition has been decent, but she hasn't been able to break down and stop her opponents, and she took a break from boxing for MMA, which is bad for her as a boxer.

I think Marshall will beat Shields to the jab in the early rounds, Shields will throw jab combinations, but will be out of range. I think Shields will out work Marshall in the early-mid rounds, as she takes more risks, Marshall will struggle with her combinations, Shields won't give her openings, but she won't be able to make her take a backward step. I think Shields will get more accurate as the fight goes on, but Marshall will land the harder shots in exchanges, she will do damage at close range, and she will finish stronger.

I think Marshall wins by UD, I think this will be fairly similar to Taylor vs Persoon, Marshall hits harder and likely has more skills than Persoon, but I think it will unfold similarly to that fight. I wouldn't be surprised if Shields won, but I wouldn't be surprised if Marshall got a stoppage.
