Kaisy Khademi will be back in the ring before the end of the year.

The 25-year-old was last in the ring last December and is expected to return on a pay-per-view undercard before the end of this year.

Khademi won an unanimous decision against Pedro Matos in his last outing, with scores of 96-94, 96-93 and 95-94 being handed in by the three ringside judges at York Hall in Bethnal Green, London.


And Boxing Scene understands that Khademi will be back on October 24 at the O2 Arena in Greenwich, London, as part of the supporting cast to the rescheduled all-British clash between Daniel Dubois and Joe Joyce.

The heavyweight duo had been set to meet back in April, for the British, Commonwealth, WBO International and WBC Silver titles that are in the possession of the undefeated Dubois, while the former Olympic silver medallist Joyce would also have the opportunity to snatch the vacant European belt on the night.

It was then pushed back to July 11 due to the COVID-19 pandemic before once again being moved, with the hope now that a small crowd will be allowed to watch the fight in the capital later in the year.

Marcel Braithwaite, the former British super-flyweight title challenger, could be the man in the opposite corner to the WBO European king on the night, according to sources, but as it stands, nothing has been set in stone regarding the opponent for Khademi, who is expected to feature as part of the BT Sport Box Office portion of the show.

One thing we do know, though, is that the long-awaited debut of former national amateur lightweight champion Masood Abdulah will also take place on the undercard of Dubois’ showdown against Joyce. The five-time London amateur champion and former Tri-Nations winner turned professional at the back end of last year under the management of Alfie Warren and Warren Boxing Management. He then signed a promotional agreement with Queensberry Promotions and the 26-year-old is set to make his bow in the paid code as part of the supporting cast to one of the most eagerly-anticipated fights of recent times.
Further additions to the undercard will be revealed in due course.
