Swindon boxer Jamie Cox will defend his WBO European super middleweight title against Ukranian Sergey Khomitsky on September 26th.

Cox will return to Wembley Arena, the scene of his WBO European title triumph, where he will fight on the undercard to Fedor Chudinov and Frank Buglioni’s WBA world title fight.

Talking on Bunce’s Boxing Hour on Boxnation on Friday night, Cox revealed he would be fighting Khomitsky who has had 33 career wins.

Cox, who wants to fight the winner of Chudinov-Buglioni for the WBA strap, also admitted he has had to fight for nothing in order to force his way back into reckoning for a world title shot.

“I’ve had to do things and have fights with no money to get to where I need to be, obviously if I am fighting for nothing then when the money comes in then I’m going to be even more hungry.

“I want the big fight thats what I’m in it for.

“For me I have to say a big thank you to Frank Warren because he was the only man that gave me the opportunity to open the door to me when I broke my hand big thanks to Frank.

“I’ve spared the best kids at middle and super middle in the UK, I know what I can do, (Chris) Eubank, Andy Lee, (Billy Joe) Saunders, anyone in the world, I’m telling you straight now if they give me six to eight weeks you want a fight give me a call and I will be there.”
