The new British super-welterweight champion claimed the vacant title in a gruelling 12-round showdown against Asinia Byfield at the Copper Box Arena in London.

Cheeseman knocked down the former Southern Area champion in the fifth round in the capital and had been expected to be back in action before the end of the year.

But after failing to overturn a 60-day medical suspension and not managing to land a spot on the same Sky Sports Box Office-aired bill as Dillian Whyte’s heavyweight rematch against Dereck Chisora, at the O2 Arena in London, there is light at the end of the tunnel for the 23-year-old.

Cheeseman will be back in action on February 2, 2019, at the O2 Arena in London.

He will challenge European super-welterweight champion Sergio Garcia for the title after terms were agreed with Sergio Martinez, the manager of 26-year-old Spaniard Garcia, for the fight to happen in the first quarter of the new year.
