For the first time since 2012, Claressa Shields and Savannah Marshall face off inside a boxing ring. The two will fight to determine the undisputed middleweight champion on October 15.

Claressa Shields vs. Savannah Marshall live results, updates

8.38 p.m.: Dubois knocks out Koleva for her fourth early night in a row! This was an entertaining slugfest in which the 21-year-old former Youth Olympic champion had already knocked down her game super-bantamweight opponent.

Dubois took a few shots herself but ultimately blew Koleva away with a nasty body shot that pummelled her victim towards the ropes, where she was sinking in the face of clubbing combinations before the referee rightly stepped in. Well played.

Meanwhile, Alycia Baumgardner is all smiles backstage.

8.30 p.m.: Former England footballer Jermain Defoe has just been interviewed on Sky Sports. “There’s some bad blood there,” he says of the main event.

“There was no way I was missing this one. When you see how far women’s boxing and women’s sport in this country has come, it’s amazing to see.”

8.15 p.m.: Dubois and Koleva are next out! Dubois is going through her final preparations with trainer Shane McGuigan and wearing a blue gown, for the record.

8.05 p.m.: Karriss Artingstall has quite a story – the former army gunner won a bronze medal for Team GB at the 2020 Olympic Games.

The Macclesfield fighter has just produced a powerful performance, taking all six rounds against French opponent Marina Sakharov.

“I want a knockout but what are you going to do?” she asks, speaking to Sky Sports. “I’ll just keep applying the pressure and see what happens.

“I walked out before any of the boxing started and I was like, ‘wow’. This is what every young girl dreams of. I can’t wait for the main event.”

7.40 p.m.: Not long until the main card!

7.20 p.m.: North-east boxer April Hunter, who has Tyson Fury’s uncle, Peter, in her corner, caps a dominant display with a deserved points win over Erica Alvarez.

7 p.m.: Shannon Ryan, who is managed by British former world champion Anthony Joshua and models herself on Floyd Mayweather, wins every round against Spaniard Buchra El Quaissi.

And look who’s in the house!

6.40 p.m.: Two more early results for you: Texan Ginny Fuchs has won a points decision over Bournemouth boxer Gemma Ruegg.

Four-time British national boxing champion – who is also a triple Taekwondo titlist – extends her perfect career record to three victories by handing Belgian champion Joyce van Ee her first defeat, winning all four rounds.

6.20 p.m.: Caroline Dubois is in the house! The unbeaten home fighter faces Bulgarian Milena Koleva in a lightweight scrap later.
