World middleweight champion Savannah Marshall is hoping for redemption in this month’s Commonwealth Games.
The Sky Scholar is targeting a gold medal in Glasgow following her shock defeat at the London 2012 Olympics.
Marshall headed to the capital as one of the strongest British favourites for gold after claiming the world title just three months prior to the Olympics.
However, the Hartlepool fighter suffered a shock first round defeat to Kazakhstan’s Marina Volnova.
Marshall underwent shoulder surgery in the winter and is now aiming to make amends for disappointment in London by becoming one of the first women to win a gold medal in Glasgow.
“I’m really looking forward to it, I haven’t boxed for about six months because of my injury so I’m just really looking forward to getting back in the ring, Marshall told Sky Spors News.
I’m back to 100 per cent, I’m injury free and glad to say that I’m over it the shoulder injury now.
“I’m just looking forward to getting back in to the ring really. It would have been ideal to have boxed before the Commonwealths but obviously things didn’t work out that way so I’m just looking to see where I’m at competition-wise after such a long lay-off. I’m hoping I’m not too far from my best.”
