The American lost only once in her life in the boxing ring, in 2012 in an amateur match against Marshall.

But Mayweather – whose last loss came at the 1996 Olympics – predicted Shields will avenge her bitter defeat.

He said: “I would like to see Claressa. She’s from Michigan like me, she’s a Michigan native like me.

“The two-time Olympic gold medalist, we like to call her the female TBE (The Best Ever) in boxing.

“And that will give her a chance to make up for her first loss. She has suffered only one defeat in her entire career.

“So I’m happy for them. And we work with the same coach, Gerald Tucker.

“Gerlad Tucker is from the Mayweather School, the Mayweather School. So looking forward to seeing Claressa Shields this weekend.”

Marshall, 31, was once a promoter herself for Mayweather, 45, and is now 12-0 with ten knockouts.

Shields, 27, is a world champion in three divisions, twice undisputed and considers herself “the greatest woman of all time”.

And if bragging rights and all four titles weren’t enough to motivate the undefeated champion, hearing Mayweather’s support was an added boost.

Shields tweeted, “@FloydMayweather looking forward to my fight tomorrow!”
