Swindon middleweight Jamie Cox will make his long-awaited return to professional boxing at the Oasis this summer.

©calyx_Pictures_Jamie Cox return_88897The former Commonwealth gold medallist revealed at a press conference today held at Fratello’s Restaurant that he will make a comeback with big fight night, which takes place on 15 June at Swindon’s Oasis.

It will be Cox’s first bout since suffering a horror injury to his left hand when beating Obodai Sai to claim the Commonwealth light-middleweight title in September 2011, a belt he was subsequently forced to relinguish.

An acrimonious split with promoter Frank Warren also ensued in the eighteen months since, during which Cox feared he may never fight again.©calyx_Pictures_Jamie Cox return_8947

But under new manager PJ Rowson, a new trainer and with a new local sponsor, FN Foods, the undefeated Swindon south paw feels his time has come again.
