Felix Cash has provided some further light on the March 17 card on which Jake Ball will return.
Boxing Scene reported on Tuesday that Ball (7-1, 6 KOs), who suffered a devastating knockout defeat at the hands of JJ McDonagh last time out, will make his comeback on the card but details regarding the bill were scarce at the time of writing.
However, Wokingham middleweight Cash will box on the bill and it has been revealed that it will take place at Bethnal Green’s York Hall venue.
Cash (4-0, 3 KOs) was last in action at Wembley’s SSE Arena on November 26, on the same card as Ball suffered that loss to McDonagh, when he ousted Sam Wall inside a round, as part of the card that was co-headlined by Katie Taylor and Ohara Davies in separate contests.
Ticket information and further details regarding the March 17 card at York Hall, which is set to be promoted by Eddie Hearn and Matchroom Boxing, will be disclosed in due course.
