One of the best Pound-For-Pound female boxers in the world, Claressa Shields, will make her first defense of the World Boxing Federation (WBF) World Middleweight title on September 10 in London, England against reigning WBO titlist Savannah Marshall.

Shields, 12-0 (2), and Marshall, 12-0 (10), are arch enemies, as “The Silent Assassin” from Hartlepool is the only boxer ever to defeat the two-time Olympic gold-medalist, amateur or pro. Marshall won a 14-8 decision when they fought in the 2012 world championships.

The 27-year-old American, who also holds the WBA, WBC and IBF world titles, won the WBF title last February when she dethroned Ema Kozin in Cardiff, Wales. The fight against Marshall had been in talks long before that, and now it is finally going to happen.

Marshall (31) won the WBO world title in October of 2020, and is making her fourth defense in the unification clash with Shields, which has been labeled “The most anticipated women's fight of all time” and is truly a genuine “Super Fight”.

The Shields vs. Marshall WBF, WBA, WBC, IBF and WBO World Middleweight title fight headlines an all-female card at the O2 Arena, promoted by Boxxer in association with Salita Promotions and Top Rank. Sky Sports will televise in the United Kingdom, and ESPN+ will broadcast in the USA.
