SWINDON’S Jamie Cox has announced he will make his highly anticipated return to the ring will take place on Saturday, 14 November on Katie Taylor’s undercard.

The 34-year-old’s promoters, Matchroom Boxing, took to social media to reveal his comeback, where he will face Jack Cullen in just under six weeks’ time.

Cox’s opponent, Cullen, will provide a stiff test for the Swindon fighter, as he has a record of 18-2-1 since turning professional in 2016.

The bout will be the first time the former world title challenger has stepped into the ring since losing out to John Ryder over two years ago.

In his performances up to that defeat, Cox had gathered a reputation of being a brawler in the squared circle, despite his extensive list of accolades as an amateur.

This time around, under the guidance of Tony Borg, Cox says he is looking to remind everyone of those talents.

“The fight will be behind closed doors and I think that will be better for me because usually I try and put on a good show,” said Cox.

“This time I’ll be trying to think about my boxing instead of just trying to break my opponent. I’m a good boxer, sometimes I just don’t use my skills.

“It’s dangerous for Jack because I’ll box better without a crowd, I won’t just go steam rolling in – sometimes I like to make a fight out of it because I’m tough.

“This time I’m going to box, that’s how I got where I was and I think people have forgotten about my amateur days.”

With this being the first contest Cox has had in over two years, he admits it is a big occasion for him on a personal level.

“This is a big fight for me, not because of the opponent or the risk it presents – it is just a big fight for me because I have been out for a long time,” he said.

“I’ve been sparring well but it’s different on the night, all your preparation comes to a head and you have to hold it together.

“Cullen will be tricky because he is so tall, that’s the only thing, I’ve sparred some people who he has fought so I’m well prepared.

“The time away from the ring has been a bit of a blur for me, it’s gone quickly but I can’t wait to get back in there.”
