Claressa Shields Vs. Savannah Marshall Fight On All-Women’s Boxing Card In September

Claressa Shields vs Savannah Marshall will be more than an undisputed title fight.

Shields (12-0, 2 KOs) will unify her WBC, IBF and WBA middleweight titles with WBO champion Savannah Marshall (12-0, 10 KOs) in the main event of an all-women’s boxing card on September 10 at the O2 Arena in England.

“Savannah Marshall got lucky in 2012, but she won’t get lucky in 2022,” Shields said at Tuesday’s press conference.

Shields and Marshall’s bitter rivalry dates back to the amateurs at the 2012 AIBA Women’s World Boxing Championships where Marshall defeated her.

That remains as Shields’ only defeat as an amateur or professional in boxing.

Shields, 27, most recently defended her three belts against Ema Kozin in February, who she defeated by decision.

Marshall, 31, meanwhile, last knocked out Femke Hermans in April. She’s held the WBO strap since overcoming Hannah Rankin in October 2020.

The co-main event will feature WBO and IBF super featherweight champion Mikaela Mayer (17-0, 5 KOs) faces WBC champion Alycia Baumgardner (12-1, 7 KOs).

Mayer claimed the WBO belt from Ewa Brodnicka by uanimous decision in October 2020.

Baumgardner is no stranger to the UK crowd after her knockouyt win against then WBC champion Terri Harper.

The other undercard fights have yet to be announced.

“This fight has been a long time coming, but we are here now and on September 10, I will be the new undisputed middleweight champion of the world,” Marshall said at the press conference.
