Boxer Tyler Christopher will make his long-awaited return from injury when he faces Cameroonian Serge Ambomo in Birmingham, England, on May 18.

Christopher has not fought since his points victory over Connor Meanwell in Edgbaston, Birmingham, in which he fractured his left hand in October last year.

The 27-year-old is scheduled to meet Ambomo in a six-round contest at super welterweight and insists he cannot afford to take the journeyman lightly as he is known for causing upsets against up-and-coming prospects.

Although Ambomo, 37, has only won 13 of his 74 fights, he pulled off a shock victory in his previous outing, beating Connor Goulding on points in Liverpool last weekend.

“He’s an experienced journeyman, and if he sees an opening, he’ll take it,” Christopher told Bernews.

“He’s fought some notable names in the UK, and I know I can’t look past him. He will come to give me a fight.

“We’ve watched [footage] of him, and I’ve been working on my straight punches.”

With eight straight victories under his belt since joining the paid ranks, Christopher is eager to improve his unblemished record and hopes for three to four fights this year.

“I’m ready to start progressing in my career – time’s ticking,” said Christopher, who returned to training in January.

“I want to step up in class, but I must do that gradually, from four to six to eight rounds.”

The southpaw, who moved to Birmingham more than four and a half years ago to pursue a pro boxing career, said he has no concerns about delivering powerful punches after recovering from his injury.

“I broke my fourth metacarpal in my left hand; it was a refracture, but I’ve been punching the heavy bags, the pads, and it feels fine,” added Christopher, who trains at the D&A Boxing School of Excellence in Stirchley under coach Anthony Hull.

“I feel ready to go after training these past three months.

“I’ve been doing Ramadan [the ninth month of the Islamic calendar, observed by Muslims as a month of fasting], which ends in ten days, and then I’ll be sparring loads.”
