Former Times ABC super-middleweight Zak Chelli retuns to the ring at the Copper Box Arena on Saturday.

The 19-year-old appears on Frank Warren’s promotion, where he faces Anthony Fox of Westbury.

Trained by his father at a gym near to Kings Cross since turning professional, Chelli has sparred with George Groves, James DeGale and Chris Eubank Jr, all reigning world champions.

And he has won his first two fights in the paid ranks, beating Jacob Lucas and Chris Dutton inside the distance.

“I’m extremely confident about myself going on to win titles,” he said.

Former Islington amateur Daniel Dubois is another 19-year-old set for action on the big bill.

The WBC World Youth heavyweight champion has won all four of his fights to date inside the distance and has been matched with Brixton’s AJ Carter in a 10-round Southern Area title contest.
