Liam Walsh sets ring return date after car accident

Liam Walsh will defend his Commonwealth super-featherweight title in his ring comeback from a back injury suffered in a car crash last year.

The Norfolk boxer, 26, had to pull out of a WBO world lightweight title fight against champion Ricky Burns in December following the accident.

Walsh record

  • 13 wins (10 KO)
  • No defeats and no draws

Walsh, who is unbeaten in 13 professional fights, will face Logan McGuinness in London on 16 March.

Canadian McGuinness is also undefeated, with a record of 19 wins and one draw.

The 25-year-old's most recent bout was a points win over the Dominican Republic's Carlos Manuel Reyes.

The pair will meet as part of promoter Frank Warren's Rule Britannia event at the Wembley Arena, which includes Burns facing IBF champion Miguel Vazquez.
