SAVANNAH Marshall is back – and boosted by a sponsorship deal from Camerons.
The reigning world middleweight champion has agreed a two-year-deal with the famous town brewery.
It comes just weeks before Marshall climbs through the ropes for the first time since she suffered a shock and controversial quarter-final elimination at the Olympic games.
The 21-year-old will fight at the European Union Championship in July in Hungary where she will be favourite for a podium finish.
Her deal with Camerons will start at the EUs and take her through a major year in 2014 when she will defend her World Amateur title as we as going for gold at the European Championships and Commonwealth Games.
“I can’t thank Camerons enough,” said the Headland ABC star. “Boxing is my life and to be getting helped like this in my career is brilliant.
“I am training extremely hard to become the best fighter in my division and this funding will help me in achieving this goal.”
Camerons Brewery will be the clothing and equipment sponsor for the gifted fighter, from Dyke House.
The sponsorship arrangement was set up by former Hartlepool Mayor, Stuart Drummond, with Camerons Brewery “delighted” to be backing Savannah.
Camerons director and general manager, Christopher Soley, said: “We are extremely happy to be able to offer long-term support to Savannah.
“We met with Savannah for the first time last summer and discussed her preparations for the Olympic Games and also her future in the sport.
“It became clear that after the Games had finished she would require further funding and assistance to continue to develop her career further.
“Being one of the oldest companies in the town and with Savannah being born and raised in Hartlepool we felt it was important to support one of our local sporting talents.”
