Savannah Marshall vs Claressa Shields UK start time, date, how to follow: London set for blockbuster clash between two titans of women’s boxing and fierce rivals


Savannah Marshall will face Claressa Shields for the right to be the undisputed WBA, WBC, IBF and WBO middleweight world champion.

The Briton and the American have been at each other’s throats for a long time and will finally have the opportunity to settle their accounts in September.

Marshall is 12-0 in her career, but Shields is a three-time world champion and two-time Olympic gold medalist.

She’s only lost once, and that was against Marshall ten years ago.

This rivalry therefore goes back a long way and we should see a thriller at the O2 Arena.
