Within the wake of the demise of Queen Elizabeth II, many sporting occasions in England can be canceled. Amongst these is the deliberate bout between Claressa Shields and Savannah Marshall that was scheduled for Saturday from the O2 Area in London.

The British Boxing Board of Management made the announcement on Friday that every one tournaments and occasions this weekend can be postponed because the nation mourns. BOXXER is provisionally planning to reschedule the occasion for Oct. 15 on the similar location.

The struggle was arguably probably the most extremely anticipated of Shields’ already-impressive profession. Marshall (12-0, 10 KO) is the present WBO girls’s middleweight champion. The struggle with Shields (12-0, 2 KO) would have been to unify Marshall’s belt with the WBA, WBC and IBF variations of the belt to create an undisputed champion within the division.

Marshall is the one girl to ever defeat Shields in a boxing ring, holding a 2012 beginner win. Shields turned skilled with a 64-1 beginner report and having gained two Olympic gold medals.

As knowledgeable, Shields has gained world titles at junior middleweight, middleweight and tremendous middleweight, turning into arguably the best feminine boxer in historical past.
