SAVANNAH MARSHALL faces the most significant bout of her career. She could win an Olympic medal today. But standing between her and the 75kgs semi-final is Holland’s Nouchka Fontijn, Savannah’s nemesis who has beaten Marshall four times in the past.

Also having her first bout of the Olympic Games is the reigning 75kgs champion Claressa Shields, who takes on Russia’s Iaroslava Iakushina in their quarter-final.
