Robbie Davies Jr. will return from defeat in the first quarter of the year.

The former British, Commonwealth and European super-lightweight champion has been out since losing for the second time as a pro. Davies Jr. lost to Lewis Ritson back in October in an official eliminator for the WBA world title at super-lightweight.

And after leaving Dave Tonks in the aftermath and teaming up with Dominic Ingle at the famous Wincobank gym in Sheffield, the 30-year-old has had his comeback penned in.

He has been confirmed as an addition to the supporting cast to Scott Quigg’s clash against Jono Carroll on March 7 at Manchester Arena.

The clash of the super-featherweights will be aired exclusively live on Sky Sports in the UK and on DAZN Stateside.

Davies Jr. will be joined on the card by heavyweight talent Hughie Fury and British super-welterweight champion Scott Fitzgerald.

Fitzgerald, with a win, will set up a rematch against Anthony Fowler, who is also on the card, potentially at Preston North End’s Deepdale stadium later this year, after the Scouser was dropped and outpointed by his fellow Commonwealth Games gold medal winner back in March 2019.

Callum Johnson looks set to meet Igor Mikhalkin in a clash for the vacant European light-heavyweight title and confirmation is awaited of a fight between Zach Parker and Rohan Murdock to determine the mandatory challenger for Billy Joe Saunders’ WBO world title at super-middleweight.

Ibrahim Nadim, who made his professional debut back in December, will return on the card, alongside Aqib Fiaz, former Commonwealth middleweight title challenger Jack Cullen, Sheffield's Dalton Smith, undefeated middleweight Brad Rea and Fowler’s fellow Liverpudlian and former Team GB starlet Blane Hyland.

Further additions will be revealed in due course.
