Marshall eyes Glasgow gold

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, Marshall suffered a shock first round defeat to Kazakhstan's Marina Volnova.

The Hartlepool fighter is now aiming to make amends by becoming one of the first women to win a gold medal in Glasgow.
