(SEPTEMBER 8) LONDON — Bad blood hit the seas on Wednesday afternoon. Open practice for Saturday’s all-women’s card at London’s O2 Arena (ESPN+, 2:30 p.m. ET / 11:30 a.m. PT) took place on a boat that was cruising along the River Thames. Topping the bill are middleweight champions and former amateur opponents Savannah Marshall (12-0, 10 KOs) and Claressa Shields (12-0, 2 KOs) battling for the undisputed title.

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