The mind games are in full flow between WBO world middleweight champion Savannah Marshall and WBA, WBC and IBF title holder Claressa Shields. 

A fight between the two for the undisputed title was scheduled for July, however, this has been pushed back to early September after Marshall underwent arm surgery, an injury which Shields questioned. 

Speaking to Sky Sports, Marshall claimed that her American rival knew about the injury and is confused by the recent accusations. 

"Claressa has known all about my injury, she has known everything that has gone on," Marshall said.

"She got told about a month ago so I don't know whether it's red-chested or she has just opened her inbox.

"I haven't a clue with that girl.

"My fitness is good, I'm getting there, slowly building myself back up, getting my strength back. I am taking it easy, trying to not to rush."
