Shields-Marshall, Mayer-Baumgardner is set on September 10 in London
The undisputed women’s middleweight title match between Claressa Shields and Savannah Marshall will be officially announced on Tuesday.
ESPN reported that it will take place on September 10 at the O2 Arena in London. They also revealed the Unified Women’s Super Featherweight clash between Mikaela Mayer (IBF, WBO champion) and Alycia Baumgardner (WBC champion) will be on the same card.
Mayer announced the war on social media six weeks ago, but no date or location has been confirmed.
The televised action will be shown on Sky Sports in the UK with speculation it could land on their Box Office pay-per-view platform.
‘Further significant announcements will be made at the press conference revealing details of a historic pad, a first in British boxing history,’ it said in a Boxxer press release. One obvious hint is that the September 10 show will be an all-female event.
Boxxer CEO Ben Shalom had hoped to announce a grim showdown between Shields (WBC, WBA and IBF champion) and Marshall (WBO champion) in April. However, there was a battle for supremacy some teething problems but now we are only 48 hours away from it being officially announced.
