Claressa Shields vs. Savannah Marshall: The undisputed title match between Claressa Shields and Savannah Marshall has been formally rescheduled for October 15 following The Queen’s passing.
Shields vs. Marshall, the main event of a historically all-female bill that was initially scheduled for Saturday, September 10, now has a new date at The O2.
The British Boxing Board of Control decided to postpone the fight in accordance with the cancellation of other sporting competitions and leagues as the nation entered a period of sorrow.
Mikaela Mayer and Alycia Baumgardner will compete for the WBC, WBO, and IBF super-featherweight belts on the undercard ahead of the revised date.
Existing ticket holders do not need to buy new tickets; all tickets bought for the original September date are still good for the new October 15 date.
On boxxer.com, the last unsold tickets are currently being sold for just £25 each. All other pricing ranges of tickets are currently sold out.
Olympic bronze medalist Karriss Artingstall challenges Marina Sakharov, Olympic gold medalist Lauren Price competes in her second professional bout against Timea Belik, and Ebonie Jones, April Hunter, and Shannon Ryan all make their comebacks. Youth Olympic gold medalist Caroline Dubois takes on Milena Koleva.
Marshall presently holds the WBO title, but Shields is the undisputed middleweight world champion according to the WBA, WBC, and IBF.
Their rivalry began in 2012 when Marshall defeated Shields on points while still an amateur. To this day, the loss is the lone blemish on the otherwise spotless record of the American.
Given that the PFL Finals were originally slated for November 25, BOXXER would like to thank the Professional Fighters League and PFL CEO Peter Murray for allowing Shields to compete on October 15.
