Jonas Ready For Busy 2014, Aims For Major Medals

British fighter Natasha Jonas is looking forward to a busy 2014 and hopes to add some more major medals to her collection.

The Liverpool fighter claimed a bronze in the 2012 AIBA Women's World Amateur Boxing Championships and then pushed Irish world No 1 Katie Taylor hard in their thrilling quarter-final at the London Olympics.

While she lost 26-15 to the Irish fighter, she received a standing ovation from the ExCel Arena crowd.

She is now looking forward to pushing on again next year, with the Commonwealth Games in Glasgow and the World and European championships to fight for as she targets a medal in the 2016 Olympics in Brazil.

She told Sky Sports: "It's hard to explain to someone how that (Olympic) experience is because it was just so bizarre and so surreal.

"I was really proud - I can live with myself after being defeated by Katie because I came out of the ring and normally when you come out of the ring you think 'I could have done this, I should have done this and I could have done a bit better there', and I really had nothing else to give so I can live with the fact that I got beat because I tried my best.

"It wasn't the result I wanted but I can hold my head up high because it was the best I had at that time.

"Obviously, come 2016 and any other tournaments we meet, I'm hoping that it will be a different result."

Looking forward to the year ahead, she added: "We've got a busy year, we've got the Worlds and the Europeans as well as the Commonwealth so it's nice just to keep it going and keep the momentum going and hopefully win some more medals."
