Fit-again Jumah set for return to action

Deion Jumah will return to action in Copenhagen on June 20.

The West Londoner, who last year opted to move down from cruiserweight, will face Karel Horejsek in a six-round light-heavyweight bout at the Ballerup Super Arena.

Jumah, 25, was twice an ABA champion and is trained by George Groves’ former coach and manager Adam Booth.

He has been hampered by injury and illness during his professional career, limiting him to only four fights.

But his four wins have been impressive, the most recent coming in December when he enjoyed a second-round demolition of Josef Krivka.

“I can’t wait to get back in the ring,’’ said Jumah.

“Six months is a long time but I’ve been in the gym every day and I feel like I’ve really grown as a fighter.

“Just because I’ve not been in the ring doesn’t mean I haven’t been progressing. I may have only had four fights but I’ve been involved in world class training camps and sparring.

“I’m a firm believer in everything happening for a reason, and while I haven’t had the smoothest start to my pro career, the best is definitely yet to come

“On June 20, fans are going to see the real Deion in the ring.”
