Scarborough middleweight Jamie Scotter is eyeing up a return to the ring after an frustrating start to 2016.

Scotter was lined up to make his debut in Hull back in March, but issues with his medical prevented him from doing so.

The former Scarborough ABC man underwent laser eye surgery eight weeks ago to correct some issues with his eyesight and is now back sparring in a bid to get back in the ring sooner rather than later.

“It’s been really frustrating,” said Scotter.

“I had the laser eye surgery eight weeks ago and I wasn’t allowed to train for a few weeks after that and have only been able to start some sparring the last couple of weeks.

“I just want to get fit now and get in the ring as soon as possible.”

Scotter, who is the cousin of former IBF and IBO world featherweight champion Paul Ingle, will be discharged by the eye clinic on June 25 and will then begin to plot his route towards a professional debut.

“After I’m discharged, they’ll send the papers to the Board of Control and I should get my licence.

“I want to be as fit as possible at that point so I can fight pretty quickly after that.

“Hopefully people who have supported me and those who bought tickets to my debut will get behind me again.”
