Ali set for February ring return

This Is Local London: Artif Aki Artif Aki

ACCRINGTON boxer Artif Ali is set to return to action in February after making it two wins out of two as a professional.

The 25-year-old featherweight secured a convincing points victory over journeyman Kristian Laight in a four-rounder at Colne Muni earlier this month.

That came after defeating Aaron Flinn on his professional debut in Oldham in October.

“For my first pro fight I was quite nervous but in my second fight I wasn’t nervous,” said Ali, who trains in Moss Side in Manchester.

“My opponent was a stone heavier than me but it was an easy fight.

“I’m fighting again at the Reebok Stadium in February now.”
