One-time amateur superstar Muhammad Ali is making up for lost time after teaming up with Steve Wood.
The 2016 Olympian signed with the VIP team on the recommendation of trainer Anthony Farnell in early 2023.
He ended 13 months out of action in July when he was mightily impressive, outpointing Rustem Fatkhullin over six rounds in Wakefield.
Ali turned professional in February 2022 and after a disqualification win against Stefan Sashev, scored points victories over Jamie Quinn, Lee Glove and Brayan Mairena before taking his break.
There was a bump when he took on Nicaraguan Miguel Zamora in October 2023, but was surprisingly held to a draw, by the import.
In 2015 he won a silver medal in the European Amateur Championships losing in the 52kg final against Bulgarian Daniel Asenov. In the same year he won the British amateur championships.
Ali got revenge over Asenov at an Olympic qualifying tournament, but his time at the games in Rio was short-lived.
Competing at flyweight the 5ft 8in Yorkshireman received a first-round bye, but in his first bout at the last 16 stage lost on points to Venezuela's Yoel Segundo Finol.
