Jamie Cox To Return On Huck-McKenzie Card In Germany

By Elliot Foster

Jamie Cox will return to the ring later this month as he looks to get his career back on track.

The undefeated super-middleweight (20-0, 12 KOs) has been out of the ring since last November, when he destroyed Ferenc Albert inside a round at the National Stadium in Dublin in a defence of the WBO European crown.

Cox, a former Commonwealth super-lightweight champion and Commonwealth Games gold medal winner as an amateur, has had out-of-the-ring issues which have led to his absence.


But the 30-year-old Swindon man, who is promoted by Frank Warren, will make his comeback on September 24, exclusively live on BoxNation, as part of the undercard to a world title show.

The show, which is topped by Derby-based Jamaican cruiserweight Ovill McKenzie in a challenge for the IBO world title against German legend Marco Huck, will take place at the Festhalle in Frankfurt.

No opponent has yet been revealed for the skillful southpaw, but it is expected that a foe will be named in the next week or so.
