Event partner rounds up all the information, odds and offers ahead of the most anticipated fight in women’s boxing history.
Tagged as the biggest fight in the history of women’s boxing, Savannah Marshall and Claressa Shields will finally settle their decade-long feud on a historic night of fighting action in London this weekend.
The bout is expected to be a tight affair, as evidenced by the odds on offer from Bet365: Claressa Shields 10/11, Savannah Marshall 10/11, Draw 10/1
The two unbeaten middleweight sensations are set to collide in one of the most hotly-anticipated bouts in recent years, with pride, legacy and the title of undisputed middleweight champion all at stake.
The pair will headline a star-studded all-female cast at the O2 Arena, with Mikaela Mayer and Alycia Baumgardner facing off in a super featherweight unification battle whilst 2020 Team GB Olympians Lauren Price, Karriss Artingstall and the hard-hitting Caroline Dubois take the latest steps in their professional boxing development.
When is Claressa Shields vs Savannah Marshall?
The blockbuster women’s clash will take place on the evening of Saturday, 10 September at the O2 Arena, London. The action will get underway at 18:00, with the ring walks for the main event expected at around 22:30, depending on the length of preceding bouts.
Can I watch Claressa Shields vs Savannah Marshall?
Coverage of the event will be available in the UK on Sky Sports.
Are there any belts on the line?
Yes – every single one. Shields brings her WBA, WBC, WBF, IBF and The Ring belts to the party, while Marshall is the WBO title-holder. The winner will therefore be able to boast the title of undisputed female middleweight world champion.
Who is the favourite?
Despite the host of titles to her name, Michigan native Shields comes into the fight as slight underdog at 10/11, while Hartlepool’s Marshall is 10/11 to take the spoils – and punters can back the home favourite for victory via knockout, technical knockout or disqualification at 5/2.
A spokesperson for Bet365 said: “We can’t split these two rivals as it stands. Both fighters are currently priced at 10/11 to win the bout with Marshall slightly shorter in the To win by KO, TKO or Disqualification market at 5/2, compared to 9/1 for Shields. One thing’s for sure, it’s going to be an explosive night on 10 September, and we can’t wait.
“Live on Sky Sports and brought to you by our partners at BOXXER, this event marks a defining moment in women’s sport, and something we at bet365 are extremely proud to be a partner of.”
