Swindon boxer Jamie Cox has admitted that he has “unfinished business” in boxing and has strongly hinted that he will make a return to the sport.
Although he stopped short of confirming a comeback, Cox revealed he is definitely considering one and told fans to “wait for the news”.
If he does return to boxing then he is likely to campaign at middleweight with his only aim to “win a world title”.
Talking to Your Sport Swindon’s Will Hale, the former Walcot amateur boxer said: “Just wait for the news. We are working hard and all will be revealed shortly.
“I have unfinished business. I love the game.
“If I come down to middleweight I think I will be a force.
“I have unfinished business. I come into boxing to win a world title.”
Since officially announcing his retirement back in January, Cox has been training with Richard Farnan in Swindon’s Alpha Gym.
The 34-year-old fell just short of world honours during his professional career, losing to both George Groves (in the World Super Series) and John Ryder (in a world eliminator fight) but he did claim Commonwealth, European and Continental titles. As an amateur Cox was the star of Walcot ABC and his rise to fame saw him win Gold at the 2006 Commonwealth Games.
Meanwhile, another former Walcot amateur Sugar Shawn Grant is set to make his professional debut in the coming months, when small hall promoters are able to host shows again.
Grant’s debut is likely to be on one of Neilson Promotions’ first shows back since the pandemic.
