East Anglian 73kg title holder Max Hawes is set to return to the ring on Saturday in Basildon.

The 28-year-old Newmarket ace is among the bill for the ‘talk of the town’ show at Liquid and Envy nightclub as he takes on home fighter Mark Collins.

He will be joined on the bill by club mate Jim Bowers who will face another home fighter in the form of Chris Stebbeds, with Newmarket-based former-jockey-turned promoter Eddie Guest believing both have a good chance of impressing.

“I think we will definitely have two winners on the night,” he said.

“Max has that bit of class that we have seen in the past in winning a title and so I’m expecting a good fight.

“Jim has a different style and is more a brawler, that is the way he likes to box, but he is very tough so should be confident.”
