Ryan Farrag will be back in the ring next month.
The former European bantamweight champion hasn’t boxed since losing to Sunny Edwards last October.
Farrag, who went to Belgium and knocked out Stephane Jamoye to win the blue belt back in 2015, has suffered three losses since the biggest night of his career, including a challenge for the British title against former world champion Ryan Burnett in October 2016.
But the 31-year-old, who now holds a record of 19-4 with five quick, will be looking to get back to winning ways when he fights on August 4 in Spain.
Farrag has been confirmed as an addition to a bill at Marbella’s Plaza de Toros de Puerto Banus in Andalucia and will feature over six rounds.
The card will be topped by a female world title fight as Joana Pastrana defends her IBF minimumweight crown against Yokasta Valle.
IN OTHER NEWS: Robbie Davies Jr. will be back in the ring next month.
The current British and European super-lightweight champion claimed the continental honour in his last outing against Joe Hughes.
Davies Jr. outpointed the Malmesbury man at the M&S Bank Arena back in March by margins of 115-113, 118-110 and 115-114.
And he will feature on the same card as Hughes, exclusively live on Sky Sports in the UK and DAZN Stateside, on August 2.
Hughes faces Lewis Ritson for Davies Jr.’s old WBA Continental super-lightweight title at the Auditorium at the M&S Bank Arena on the same platforms.
Davies Jr. (18-1, 12 KOs) is expected to fight around the welterweight limit of 147 pounds when he returns before potentially facing the winner of the Ritson-Hughes showdown in his next fight.
The show is topped by Anthony Fowler’s rescheduled clash against Brian Rose and will also feature local talent Thomas Hart and Montrose super-middleweight John Docherty.
Heavyweight Martin Bakole will box in a clash against Ecuador’s Ytalo Perea, while Jack Cullen defends his English middleweight title against Dillian Whyte-managed John Harding Jr.
Sean McGoldrick, the former Commonwealth Games gold medallist, completes the show in a showdown with former Commonwealth and English flyweight champion Thomas Essomba for the vacant WBC International bantamweight title and there is action for Anthony Crolla-trained lightweight prospect Dylan Evans, Fowler’s fellow former Olympian Qais Ashfaq and a debut outing for Nathan Farrell.
