A landmark night for women’s boxing takes place at the O2 Arena in London tonight as old foes Claressa Shields and Savannah Marshall meet to crown an undisputed middleweight champion.
The pair met in the ring as amateurs, with Britain’s Marshall hinting at her American rival who is out for revenge in their rematch this weekend – a month after the bout was postponed following the death of the Queen.
Shields, 27, carries the WBA, WBC, WBF and IBF middleweight titles into the O2 arena while Marshall, 31, puts the WBO belt on the line.
Each woman is 12-0 unbeaten as a pro, though Marshall has 10 knockouts compared to Shields’ two.
Here’s everything you need to know as the old rivals lead an all-female card.
