Nakash to Return in January

Former world title challenger Ran Nakash (25-1, 18 KOs) is scheduled to return to action on January 21, 2012 at the Roseland Ballroom in New York, New York. This would be Nakash's first fight since facing Marco Huck for the WBO cruiserweight belt last April.

In that fight, Nakash gave a good account of himself. Many observers felt he did enough to earn a draw as he dominated the first half of the contest. The Krav Maga expert from Israel ran out of gas during the second half. Since the fight took place in Germany, the hometown Huck got the benefit of the doubt, winning a unanimous decision by a wide margin.

No opponent has been named for Nakash as of yet. This would be the first fight of his career in New York.
