Shields vs Marshall Tops Historic All-Female Card In The Capital
Claressa Shields (12-0, 2 KO’s) and Savannah Marshall (12-0, 10 KO’s) meet for the Undisputed Middleweight Titles in a long-awaited collision this Saturday, October 15 at The O2, London.
In a week when boxing has fallen under immense scrutiny and disillusion with fans more than ever before, there is no doubt that these two great women will show us on Saturday exactly why fight fans love the pugilistic art.
2022 has been the strongest year for women’s boxing yet. In April Katie Taylor and Amanda Serrano sold out the legendary Madison Square Garden in their fight of the year contender.
Terri Harper and Natasha Jonas both jumped several weight classes this year and now we could get to a point where they meet for all the belts at 154.
Saturday marks a historic moment in British boxing as we witness an all-female card for the first time ever, and it has to be said that there is a great deal riding on this event.
Due to the excellent promotion behind this fight, many of the fans tuning in would be watching boxing for the first time and it’s the job of the 22 females on this card to convince them to return.
