BoxingScene.com has been advised by John Loew, assistant trainer and son of head trainer Jack Loew, that super welterweight contender Willie Nelson (21-1) has been given the green light to fully participate in gym activities on Monday.
Nelson was scheduled to face Mathew Macklin in December but pulled out of the fight due to an injury to his elbow.
"Willie is doing well! He will be back full speed on Monday. He has been running and doing light shadow boxing but will be good to go on Monday," Loew told BoxingScene.com.
He is still on target to return to the ring in late March or April.
