There's so much knowledge in the gym and seeing guys like Andre Ward, who is the best in the world, training every day has left me a bit in awe to be honest. Virgil has a lot of knowledge and one thing I like about him is he knows how to take an Oly[...]
Now that my first opponent has been announced, all I want to do is get in the ring – I'm so excited for my first fight. Training with Virgil Hunter has been amazing, he's taught me some great new things for my professional debut. All my focus is on [...]
I would love to take professional boxing to the next level, I'd love to be a multi-weight world champion one day, that's the main goal. There's been a few (fighters I'm aspiring to emulate), fighters of today, like Lomachenko, Rigondeaux, [Gennady] [...]
"(They've all just told me) to take each fight as a normal bout. It's going to be the same size ring, judges and an opponent in front of you, and just go for it and get the win."
The preparations are going really well. I'm training with Virgil Hunter in San Francisco. I'm learning new tricks, settling down on my punches and trying to punch a lot harder, but it's going good. Everything has been the same as normal which I was [...]
This is the next step on my journey and to be working with BT Sport and [promoter] Frank Warren is amazing. Together we can help take woman's boxing to a new levels and I can't wait to get to get in the ring in April and start working towards becomi[...]
"After winning the gold in 2012, I decided that I wanted to stay amateur, continue my career as an amateur just because I wanted to leave the amateur game a World champion as well as double Olympic champion. So I decided to stay to fulfil my goals a[...]
"I'm absolutely over the moon,". "I'm now the most accomplished amateur boxer that Britain has ever had. It's a nice title to have. It's been an amazing journey.".
I came here for a medal but, you know me, I always want the gold so I'm going to be aiming for the gold.
"She was a tough opponent, did not stop coming forward, really aggressive, quite strong. I just had to get through it. It was one of those,". "I was a little bit off with the ring rust but as the rounds go on now I've got that first fight out the wa[...]
I just felt a little bit rusty but I can say now the ringrust is off. I can push on.

"When you don't know what to expect, there's no footage, you just have to go in tight guard, stick to the basics and then from there you start to read them and see what they're about,". "It just comes from experience.".
I would like to thank everyone back home for their support including my sponsors and the National Lottery and UK Sport.
"It feels really good to know that I will be defending my title in Rio. I am really excited. It is no longer the Road to Rio, I am going to Rio. I've qualified and I am ready to defend my title and hopefully become a double Olympic champion,"
This week has been really amazing. I have felt relaxed and comfortable. I have done all my training back in Sheffield with my coach Alwyn [Belcher] and the team at GB. I've done everything and the physios, strength and conditioning coaches, boxing c[...]
Through this tournament I feel like I've boxed really well and I've gone from strength to strength. I have not taken anyone lightly and have treated every competition as a final. Every time I get in the ring I have to give 110% because my opponents [...]
