Unbeaten Blackburn welterweight Qasim Niaz (8-0) has been out of the ring for over a year after suffering an injury to his right hand. He has had surgery to correct the issue and now returns on Saturday October 22 at the Bolton Whites Hotel.

Niaz told British Boxers that he really wants to win a Lonsdale belt and try and become the first British-Pakistani to claim a British title.

“I am just happy to be back in the ring and can’t wait to fight on Saturday night.” said Niaz.

“The hand injury has really set me back after a busy start to my career and I am now only just able to punch properly with it. I don’t think anyone has seen what I can do, only Kevin (Maree) my trainer and I hope I can now get boxing regular and get my career underway again, I have really missed it.

“My ultimate aim is to be a world champion, that was my dream when I began boxing.

“But minimum I want to hold the British title, I mean who doesn’t. I really want to be a British champion, plus no British-Pakistani has yet won a British title, so I would like to be the first to win one.” Diaz added.
