FORMER British heavyweight challenger Mickey Steeds makes his return to action at York Hall tomorrow night on a two-title bill at the Bethnal Green venue.

Isle of Dogs fighter Steeds lost to Welsh giant Scott Gammer in a British heavyweight title bid in 2006 but last year stepped down to the cruiserweight division and is due to meet West Yorkshire's Paul Bonson on Frank Maloney's promotion on Friday night.

The bill includes a British light-middleweight championship defence for popular Gary Woolcombe and an English heavyweight bid for John McDermott.

Woolcombe faces his toughest pro test against Sheffield's seasoned campaigner Ryan Rhodes while the chief support looks likely to provide plenty of fireworks with a clash between power punchers McDermott and Birmingham opponent Pele Reid.

Also lined up for action is the UK's first professional Iraqi boxer flyweight Najah Ali, a former Olympic boxer based at trainer Johnny Eames' east London gym.

"Najah reached the quarter-finals at the last Olympics and has been training in the USA before settling in London," said Eames. "He looks a bright prospect."

The show also sees Henry Castle take on Ryan Barrett and southpaw Johnny Greaves, from East Ham, in action in a welterweight clash with Margate's Scott Woolford.

Tickets are available on 0871 2261508 or at www.frankmaloney.com.
