UNLUCKY boxer Andy Kremner is scheduled to step back into the ring in December.
The 25-year-old from Delph, who has fought only once in almost two years that have been being plagued by injury, has resumed training.
Kremner, who jokingly describes himself as the Jack Wilshere (Arsenal and England’s injury-jinxed footballer) of boxing, is desperate to make up for lost time.
After having surgery on a career-threatening shoulder injury, Kremner had returned to action earlier this year before he and his girlfriend Nicola Mellor were badly injured in a car crash on Huddersfield Road, Oldham.
Kremner, who sustained a serious back injury, then had another four-month spell on the sidelines.
But the end of the misery is in sight with Kremner due to fight on The Jolly Boys Show at Victoria Warehouse, Manchester.
He does not yet know the name of his opponent on December 17.
Kremner, who has won all seven of his bouts as a professional since turning professional in 2014, said: “I had done some light training, but last week resumed it fully.
“I had a few back issues when I returned to training, but I am over them and am back sparring.”
Kremner, who fights at light-welterweight, added he has not piled on too many pounds while out of action, saying he has been disciplined in his lifestyle.
He works in the emergency hub for Greater Manchester Fire Service while training with Matthew Hatton at his gym in Stockport.
“I have been really unlucky the last two years, but I am keen to make up for lost time,” he said.
“I want to get fighting to earn some money for a deposit for a house.”
Kremner is looking for sponsors to help with kit and training costs. Any company will have its logo on his shorts, and he says promoter Steve Wood’s VIP shows regularly attract 35,000 views on Facebook. Call him on: 07470 332490.
