Claressa Shields and Savannah Marshall were supposed to go head to head, for the second time in their careers, a few weeks back. However, the passing of Queen Elizabeth II put a kibosh on that.
With UK sport going on hiatus, the fight—booked at London’s O2 Arena—was moved to this weekend. So now, unless something happens to Charles, we’ll get to see one of the best women’s match-ups possible on the planet right now on Saturday night.
