Gloves are flying at Garner’s Boxing Gym in Echuca.
Local resident and former boxing champion Daria Atkinson is back in the ring after spending over a decade on the sidelines.
The 32-year old competed in her last event in 2002 at the Australian Amateur Boxing League National Championships where she fought in two weight divisions.
‘‘I lost the light-middle weight but I also fought in a heavier division which I won,’’ Miss Atkinson said.
The boxing powerhouse also holds a state title.
‘‘I got the Victorian title as well. For amateur light-middle weight,’’ she said.
After a solid two months of training every night Miss Atkinson is confident she will return to the ring by the end of the year.
‘‘I have set a goal to have an exhibition fight by Christmas,’’ she said.
‘‘I want to get a few amateur titles under my belt and then I hope to have a few professional fights.’’
