The match between Claressa Shields and Savannah Marshall has been rescheduled after being postponed initially due to the demise of Queen Elizabeth.
Early in September, the two fierce rivals were finally going to have the opportunity to settle the score and compete to become the indisputable middleweight world champion.
The crowd at The O2 Arena were prepared for a thrilling match because both fighters have 12-0 career records and have long-standing rivalries.
But after hearing about the Queen’s passing, the fight was called off.
However, the match has now been postponed for the following Saturday, and both celebrities are eager to return and finally face off in front of the cameras.
The undercard, which also features Mikaela Mayer vs. Alycia Baumgardner, Caroline Dubois, and Lauren Price, will be a historical night for women’s boxing.
Marshall v Shields: Date and start time
This highly anticipated bout will now take place on Saturday, October 15 at London’s O2 Arena.
The night’s action will start at 5 o’clock, with the main event scheduled for 10:30 o’clock.
Following the news of the Queen’s passing, the scheduled event for September 10 was abruptly cancelled.

Marshall v Shields: What has been said?
I’ve stated I’m going to hurt you, and I will, Marshall. You are nothing more than a bully, that much is certain.
Of course I admire Claressa, but she doesn’t like the fact that I have an opinion.
I informed her that I thought her most recent fight was demonic after watching it. She was opposed to that.
Shields: “I’m going to put all the sceptics to rest regarding my ability to knock people out, my skills, and everything I’ve accomplished.
Being the underdog is nothing new, though. I’ve successfully completed this several times before. Even if you have a big mouth, Claressa always backs it up. What I want you to say is that.
“I don’t understand why you believe you are so huge and powerful. Please keep my belt warm.
