Badou Jack Expects To Return To Action on January 12 or 19

By Per Ake Persson

Badou Jack "The Ripper" was interviewed by Swedish news agency TT recently and said that his next fight will be either January 12 or January 19.

It will be a non-title fight against an opponent to be announced. Jack also said he would be facing the winner of Adonis Stevenson and Oleksandr Gvozdyk most likely in May 2019. Stevenson and Gvozdyk battle for the WBC light heavyweight title next month in Canada.

Badou have been inactive since fighting a draw against Stevenson in May.

Kenyan all time great Richard Murunga passed away recently at the age of 65. Murunga won a bronze in the 72 Olympics and was among the first if not the first of many excellent fighters from East Africa to make the move to Europe.

Murunga went 3-0 in Denmark and Finland but due to injuries his career was cut short. He later became a coach but after an accident he was confined to a wheelchair since 2002.

Should be Marcus Browne, both are #1 and #2 by the WBC and WBA so that fight only make sense to make next, unless Marcus goes the WBO route and wait for the winner of Alvarez vs Kovalev Rematch since…
