Jamie Cox targets titles as he prepares to end
long absence from the ring

Jamie Cox hopes to work his way back into light-middleweight title contention after recovering from a career-threatening injury. The former Commonwealth champion has been sidelined since September 2011 after suffering a serious hand injury, but Cox is finally fit enough to return in his hometown of Swindon on June 15.

Cox has linked up with manager and promoter PJ Rowson after parting company with Frank Warren and wants to gradually move towards fights against the likes of Commonwealth king Liam Smith and British champion Brian Rose.

"Fair play to lads like Liam Smith and Brian Rose," said the 26-year-old southpaw. "It's a hard, hard game and they've done well to get to the top. "But I'm back now, I'm hungrier than ever and I want titles. "I've always wanted the British title and that's still my target, but I'm going to take it one step at a time. "I know I've got to work my way back up. I'm going to take small steps to get back to where I want to be. "I'm under the radar at the moment, nobody's talking about me, so there's no pressure." Cox admits he battled depression during his lengthy spell away from the ring. "I broke the metacarpals in my left hand and the doctors told me I would never box again," he said. "I was down. Boxing is all I've known since I was a kid. I put on weight because I couldn't train properly and I've been delivering car parts and doing odd jobs to get by. "For a while, I couldn't even open a jam jar never mind punch a bag - and it took two operations to get my hand right again."

JAMIE BRINGS HOME COMMONWEALTH TITLE
Jamie Cox vís Obodai Sia
12 Rounds Light-Middleweight
Friday 9 September 2011
at Hilton Hotel, Park Lane, London.


Swindonís Jamie Cox claimed the Commonwealth light-middleweight title with a unanimous points win over Gahnaian champion Obodai Sai . Sia and his team hotly disputed the victory after Jamie had two points deducted for low blows. But even with this Jamie still won the fight clearly on points 114-113 114-112 115-113 .

Jamie had started the fight with a blistering pace and had Sai on the ropes early on. The Cox team had identified that Sai was open for shots to the body and exploited this throughout the fight. Unfortunately Jamie picked up a cut to the left eye in the second and again to the right in the sixth. This was the first time to 12 rounds for Jamie and although the pace dropped a little in the ninth and tenth, Jamie was back on his toes and the action didn't stop until the final bell.

Jamie said after the fight: ďTo be honest, I thought I hit him on the belt. I thought he was making excuses when I hit him on the body. ďI saw him on video and he doesnít like getting hit on the body, so we worked on that. ďNo excuses - I won the fight and Iíll fight anyone. If he wants to go again, weíll go again.Ē

The victory now takes Jamie's professional record to 16-0-9

WIN NO 15 FOR JAMIE COX
Jamie Cox v's Marcus Portman
Saturday 21st MAY 2011 'THIS IS IT'
8 Rounds Light-Middleweight Contest
at the 02 Arena, London.


Jamie made an impressive return after almost 15 months out of the ring. Starting on the front foot Jamie's pressure in the first and second round saw his opponent retreat to the ropes with little in reply.

An early result looked likely but Portman always had a punchers chance. In the third Jamie stepped up the pressure and the referee had no option but to stop the fight.

Jamie said: ďThere was a lot of built up tension after 15 months out of the ring. I had to prepare properly for the fight as Portman is a great boxer. It was the referee's job to to what he had to and stop the fight. I'd like to thank the fans that travelled from Donegal and Swindon for their support.Ē
