Chris Nixon will man the opposite corner as Steve Collins Jr returns to the ring in Dublin on February 5th.
The light heavyweight prospect ends an injury-enforced year absence when he fights at the Roadstone on an MGM-promoted Sean ‘Big Sexy’ Turner-topped show and the Stoke fighter will provide the opposition.
Nixon comes to Dublin with a winning record having won five of his nine pro bouts.
The 30 year old English light heavyweight takes on the son of fight legend Steve Collins on the first of two Dublin fight nights on the first weekend of February, and comes into the contest on the back of a win having outpointed Andy Neylon in October.
Collins will be confident he can overcome the challenge Nixon brings, but his opponent will come with aspirations of victory and will provide the undefeated Dubliner with a test considering lengthy ring absence.
