And then 13 days later Marshall will step into the ring against Scotland’s Hannah Rankin for the WBO World Middleweight Title on October 17.

Speaking about receiving her shot at the belt, Cameron said: "Thanks @matchroomboxing @mtkglobal @eddiehearn @jamiemoore777 for getting this over the line for me. My world title shot ? ?."

And Marshall added: "It’s on ?.....??????? vs ???????."

Cameron was mandatory for the WBC world title in both the lightweight and super-lightweight divisions but was struggling to secure her shot despite repeatedly calling out Irish undisputed queen Katie Taylor.

The Northampton-based boxer has a perfect professional record after 12 fights and has stopped seven of her opponents.

Meanwhile, Marshall was originally due to fight for a version of the light-heavyweight world title in April before the coronavirus pandemic disrupted those plans.

Promoter Eddie Hearn has also confirmed that the winner of Marshall-Rankin will fight two-time Olympic gold medallist and undisputed champion Claressa Shields.

Rankin already fought Shields back in November 2018 and lost by unanimous decision.
