Rotherham's Kash Ali is set to reinvigorate his boxing career with a high-profile bout against Joe Joyce in Birmingham on March 16. This fight marks Ali's chance at redemption following his disqualification for biting David Price four years ago.
After serving a six-month ban for his infamous biting incident, Ali reclaimed the IBF European crown. However, injuries and a 17-month hiatus from the ring halted his momentum, culminating in a points defeat to Bohdan Myronets last summer.
Promoter Frank Warren expressed optimism, stating, "Kash Ali bit my hand off for the fight." Joyce, acknowledging Ali's unpredictability, remains confident in his abilities and aims to reclaim his heavyweight standing.
Trained by Richard Towers, Ali enters the ring with enhanced skills and unwavering determination. Towers believes Ali is primed for success, showcasing improved fitness, sharpness, and experience.
With 20 wins in 22 pro fights, Ali's clash with Joyce promises to be a compelling matchup, offering Ali the opportunity to resurge in Top Heavyweight Boxing.
