PAUL ARCHER has had a long wait since his last visit to the boxing ring but is now preparing for his return on December 10.

As the Sky cameras are turned on at Peterlee Leisure Centre in the lead-up to the holiday season, the Easington boxer is well prepared for the fourth outing of his professional career.

It has been six months since the 21-year-old’s last contest and he is more than ready after his extended preparation.

He told SportMail: “I can’t wait for it to come round now.

“It has been too long after the last one so I’m chomping at the bit.

“When the last fight fell through I just had to get my head down and get on with it because these things happen in boxing.

“I’ve worked hard ever since and I’m feeling better than ever and I’m raring to go.”
