Scarborough boxer Jamie Scotter is keen to put in an impressive performance when he returns to action on Friday night at Hull City Hall.

Scotter admits he can’t wait to get back in action after a lengthy spell out of the ring for a number of reasons.

Scotter’s original opponent pulled out on Wednesday morning and at the time of going to press, no replacement had been found.

The super-middleweight is excited to get climb back through the ropes.

“I’m looking forward to it now, it’s been a while,” he said.

“I can’t wait to get in there now, it has been a good training camp and I’ve had good sparring so I am ready for the fight now.

“I won’t be going in gung-ho, I’ll be looking to be clinical and box well and see what happens from there.”

Scotter still has a handful of tickets left for the show, priced at £35.

He added: “I have a few tickets left, anyone interested can contact me on 07845 656462.

“There are a few spaces left on the coach, which leaves the Scarborough Arms at 5.15pm.

“I have to say thank you to everyone who has supported me and bought a ticket.

“I’ll have great support there again on Friday and I’m sure they’ll make a lot of noise.”

Fellow Scarborough boxer George Rhodes Jr has had to withdraw from his much-anticipated fight with Hull’s Connor Seymour due to a back injury.

Their fight has already been postponed once after issues surrounding medical documents.

There are 10 fights scheduled on Friday night’s card, with former Commonwealth and British title challenger Samir Mouneimne topping the bill.
