Ready to go: Steven Ward can’t wait to get back in the ring

Optimistic Steven Ward is back in training and eager to be part of boxing's summer return.

The former WBO European light-heavyweight champion had made the decision to move up to cruiserweight after suffering the first, weight-weakened, defeat of his career last December to Ricards Bolotniks. His return was to have taken place in April but Covid-19 terminated that.

The 30-year-old revealed he has returned to his Manchester training base with coach Jamie Moore as he awaits the call to be part one of the numerous shows being lined up in July and August.
