Savannah Marshall vs. Maria Lindberg
Savannah Marshall will now defend her WBO middleweight title against four-time world title challenger Maria Lindberg this weekend.
The fight takes place on the undercard of Conor Benn’s clash with Samuel Vargas at the Copper Box Arena in London on Saturday, live on Sky Sports and DAZN.
Marshall (9-0, 7 KOs) was originally due to defend her title against Femke Hermans, but Hermans was forced to withdraw after a member of her team tested positive for COVID.
Instead she will now put her belt on the line against Sweden’s Lindberg (19-6-2, 10 KOs), who in her career has challenged for world honours against the likes of Christina Hammer, Ema Kozin and Marie Eve Dicaire. She is 44 years old, turning professional in 2003.
Marshall won the title in her last fight, picking up a seventh round stoppage victory over Hannah Rankin at Wembley Arena in October.
