Croydon light-welterweight Dani Davis has inked a deal with top London manager/promoter Mickey Helliet.
Davis has been out of action since a draw with Martin Shaw last June that extended his unbeaten record to five fights and at 32, he knows he has to get his career moving.
He's convinced joining Helliet on an 18-month deal is the right move.
Helliet is one of the country's busiest promoters and stages regular shows in London.
Davis said: "Mickey puts on a lot of very good shows with stacked cards and big main events so I'm sure I will sell a few tickets.
"I need dates to focus on. It's hard to keep training when you don't know what you're training for. I know with Mickey "I’ll get regular fights and he has brought so many fighters through the ranks I know if I do my bit of the deal, I now have a very good chance of fighting for titles.
"I've never had dates to work towards in my career and that will change now. I want to get a couple of four rounders out of the way and then get in frame to box for titles.
"I wasn't the youngest when I turned professional, so every year is a big year for me.
"I've seen people around me do well and now I'm looking to do things."
The people who were around Davis when he was an amateur at Fitzroy Lodge ABC included David Haye and Leon Williams.
Davis himself was ranked among the top 10 and said: "I knocked boxing on the head when I had a little girl. I had to go out and pay the bills and going to the gym and training takes a lot of time.
"I got chatting to (Thamesmead welterweight) Nathan Weise after he boxed at the York Hall, he asked me that I was doing and I decided to come back." .
