I'm ready to get back in the ring on August 15

At one point it seemed as if an opponent would never be found but thankfully everything is now set and I’ll be back in the ring on August 15 at the BT studios in London.

An official announcement will be made on who I’m fighting next month and I know it will be a tough, durable guy and Michael Conlan will also be on the card.

I will be having my first fight at the super-featherweight limit of 9st 4lb which will good for me because the long-term plan of a fight with Jamel Herring is on the table. The biggest danger would be to get complacent and start thinking about Herring fight instead of focusing on the job at hand so I have to make sure that doesn’t happen.
