THE boom in women’s boxing is set to continue with Natasha Jonas making a surprise return to the sport after three years out. The London 2012 Olympian will turn professional under the guidance of trainer Joe Gallagher, and manager Steve Goodwin.

“I’m coming back,” Jonas tells Boxing News. “I’ve actually missed it.”

The Liverpudlian had a long, gruelling amateur career representing GB in tournaments across the world, winning a bronze medal at the World championships to become the first British female boxer ever to qualify for an Olympic Games.
