Media Workout: T-3 Days Until Historic Doubleheader @ London’s O2 Arena

Claressa Shields-Savannah Marshall & Mikaela Mayer-Alycia Baumgardner goes down Saturday from London’s O2 Arena and streaming LIVE AND EXCLUSIVELY in the U.S. on ESPN+ (2:30 p.m. ET/11:30 a.m. PT)

LONDON (Sept. 7, 2022) — The bad blood hit the seas Wednesday afternoon.

The open workout for Saturday’s all-female card at London’s O2 Arena (ESPN+, 2:30 p.m. ET/11:30 a.m. PT) was conducted on a boat that was sailing along The River Thames.

The top of the bill sees middleweight champions and one-time amateur adversaries Savannah Marshall (12-0, 10 KOs) and Claressa Shields (12-0, 2 KOs) battle for the undisputed title.

In the co-feature, American stars Mikaela Mayer (17-0, 5 KOs) and Alycia Baumgardner (12-1, 7 KOs) will tangle for the WBC/WBO/IBF/Ring Magazine junior lightweight titles.

The combatants faced off in the ring on the top floor of the boat, the partly cloudy London skies providing a suitable backdrop for the occasion.
