'Gemidão do Zap' no processo contra Cabral

Truax, 34, previously fought for the WBA middleweight title when in 2015 he lost to Daniel Jacobs in his second of three defeats. Jacobs outclassed him and halted the American in 12 rounds in Chicago in 2015.

'Truax is a good solid fighter with a top pedigree. "He's been in with some quality opponents like Daniel Jacobs, Jermain Taylor and (Anthony) Dirrell".

"He'll be fighting away from home so he's going to bring it on and try to take my world title, but I'm the best super-middleweight in the world and I'm going into the ring full of confidence and 100% fit".

"I've not boxed in London for a few years so I can't wait to make my return to the ring, soak up the atmosphere from the crowd and put on great show".

He's worked his way into the mix and he's going to give me a tough test. "He's a southpaw which is another challenge for myself".
