Ryan Rhodes Set To Face Khomitski, No Plan To Retire

Former European junior middleweight champion Ryan Rhodes says he has no intention of retiring any time soon. The 34-year-old returns to the ring on the 26th of November to take on Ukrainian Siarhei Khomitski at Magna in Rotherham. The Sheffield southpaw failed in his attempt to land the WBC world title when he was stopped in the 12th round by Mexican Saul Alvarez in Guadalajara back in June. Rhodes hopes victory over 37-year old Khomitski this month will put him in contention for another shot at the European title next year.

Rhodes told BBC Radio Sheffield: "I've got goals in sight. I'm number one [challenger] for the European title and I'm still enjoying the game. I'm loving it. I enjoy getting to the gym and training with the lads."

But the two-time British title holder knows he has to overcome a tough opponent in Khomitski. Rhodes saw the Ukrainian end the career of his friend and former adversary Jamie Moore. The Salford fighter quit at the end of the sixth round at the MEN Arena in 2010 and later announced his retirement from boxing.

""He's a tough, tough fella," Rhodes said. "Really I'm fighting the guy who retired Jamie Moore."
