Enzo Maccarinelli is to continue with his boxing career, dropping down a division to light-heavyweight.
Former WBO cruiserweight champion Maccarinelli had contemplated retirement after four stoppage defeats in two years.
But after talks with his promoter Frank Warren he has decided to give it another shot.
“I am coming back to fight in the light- heavyweight division because my desire is still strong. said Maccarinelli.
“Although I have made a few mistakes in recent years, I still want to be a fighter.”
