Naseem Hamed will end a two-year exile from the ring and fight again this summer.
Hamed, 30, last fought in May 2002 when he attracted a crowd of 12,000 for a dull fight against Spain's Manuel Calvo, and all plans to fight in
November of that year were postponed when he was booed from the ring.
The Sheffield fighter has instructed his advisors to put together a camp in May with specific requirements for sparring partners that will help the
former featherweight World Champion to prepare fully for a return in July or August.
It was 10 years ago this Friday that Hamed first fought in a main event on ITV, attracting an audience of over six million. He lost his unbeaten
record in 2001 to Mexico's Marco Antonio Barrera in Las Vegas, and has made £35m from his 37 fights.
