Former Queensbury Middleweight ruler Jimmy Mizon say’s his hunger for boxing success is back, as he prepares to make his long awaited return to the UK’s premier boxing league this weekend at the Epsom Downs Racecourse in Surrey.
Once one of the most feared competitors in the competition, Mizon will be looking to put his promising career back on track after suffering his only defeat last time out against Kettering’s Daniel Spencer on points, and after taking some time off from the sport after the birth of his son, the Tadworth native say’s he is now more focussed than ever to return to the top of the division and reclaim his old titles.
The former champion will appear on the undercard of the league’s Resurrection event which is headlined by the Cuban sensation Yisan Rodriguez who makes the first defence of his British Light Cruiserweight title against Nottingham’s Corey “2 Gunnz” Jackson, and Mizon say’s he is looking forward to getting back down to what he loves doing best when he steps through the ropes on his home turf.
“ After my last fight I’ve had plenty of time to refocus myself and rediscover my hunger for boxing which had completely deserted me before my last fight, commented the former champion.
“ Against Spencer that wasn’t really me in there, and since that loss and the birth of my son all I’ve been really focussing on is looking after him and getting back into training.
“ Since I’ve been back in the gym I’ve been feeling sharp, fit and ready to go, and all of the hard work that I have been putting into this fight camp will pay off when I make my hometown return.
Prior to Mizon’s departure from the competition at the end of season 2, the popular champion from Tadworth in Surrey was renowned for his unforgiving, relentless style of pressure fighting, but the young father now believes people will see a different side to his repertoire when he gets back into the mix on the 19th as he plans his return to the top.
“People always remember me for my all out agressive style of fighting, but since my return I’ve been working on a lot of new things in the gym, and I’m hoping I can show people that I can box as well and fight on the 19th.
“ Once I get this fight out of the way I want to start to establish myself in the league once more, and ultimately I want to get back up to the top of the Middleweight or Ligt Middleweight division and get my titles back.
Also in action on the bumper line up of contests, Tadworth Lightweight Beau Jeffrey will also be looking to bounce back after narrowly missing out on winning his league debut back in February. The eighteen-year-old pocket rocket looks like an exciting addition the competition with his all action style of fighting, and Jeffrey will face Readings Daniel Neville as he bids to record his first victory since signing for the league. Mizon and Jeffrey’s contests will take place this Saturday night in the Oaks arena at the Epsom Downs Racecourse, and for further information on the full line up CLICK HERE
