BOXING - Matty Harris to return to the ring in March

Leamington Editorial 26th Jan, 2024 Updated: 26th Jan, 2024   0

LEAMINGTON heavyweight Matty Harris will make his return to the ring at Telford International Centre on March 1 live on Channel 5.

Harris (5-1) suffered a shock knockout defeat against Ukrainian fighter Kostiantyn Dovbyshchenko (10-14-1) in his last bout which took place in July last year.

A recharged Harris will begin his comeback trail as part of a huge night of European title action at the Wasserman Boxing event.

Harris said: “Since losing my unbeaten record, I have taken time out to work on what went wrong last summer.

“I’ve now got a renewed focus and I feel recharged and more than ready to get back in the ring, on March 1 in Telford.

“I have teamed up with Peter Fury and I am really excited about this new partnership and where my career can go with this man in my corner, because he has forgotten more than most people know about the sport.

“I’m buzzing to be back; I can’t wait to put right what went wrong and start putting myself back in the heavyweight mix.”

Abass Baraou and Sam Eggington’s European title clash headlines the card with British prospect Dan Toward to feature on the undercard.

The card takes place at Telford International Centre on Friday, March 1.
