Savannah Marshall will now defend her WBO middleweight title against four-time world title challenger Maria Lindberg (19-6-2, 10 KOs) this weekend. 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 the coronavirus. 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 won the title in her last fight, picking up a seventh-round stoppage victory over Hannah Rankin at Wembley Arena in October. Sweden’s Lindberg has challenged, and lost, for world honors against the likes of Christina Hammer, Ema Kozin and Marie Eve Dicaire.
