Ronnie Clark is set for his first fight in nearly three-and-a-half years when he meets Sultan Zaurbek on Saturday's MTK Fight Night - and he's promised that he will show the fans exactly what they have been missing.
The event takes place at the Baluan Sholak Sports Palace in Almaty, live on ESPN+ in association with Top Rank in the US, on SportTimeKZ in Kazakhstan, and on IFL TV for the rest of the world.
Clark (21-4-2, 10 KOs) is back for the first time since his victory over Zelfa Barrett back in February 2018, and despite the inactivity, he's confident of defeating unbeaten Zaurbek (10-0, 7 KOs) and claiming the vacant WBO European super-featherweight title.
Clark said: "I am glad to be back in the ring after such a long time out. I am only in this sport for the real fights and to give the fans what they deserve.
"This is a tough old sport. Due to injuries and family commitments things have been difficult as fighting is my medicine. This is what makes me tick.
"Zaurbek is a very talented fighter, with a very high boxing IQ. This will be the fight of the night! If anyone knows me, I never focus on my opponent though, I just focus on myself. I am in no hurry for anything, I have my focus on this fight only.
"I won't be coming along to just make up the numbers, and I am excited to fight over in Kazakhstan. I have only ever heard very nice things about the country."
