Newly crowned British light-welterweight champion Curtis Woodhouse has reversed his decision to retire from boxing.

In February, former Premier League footballer Woodhouse completed a successful transition to the boxing ring with a split decision victory over Darren Hamilton to secure the British title.

Immediately after the fight, which was held at Hull's Ice Arena, Woodhouse confirmed he intended to hang up his gloves and "bow out as champion."

However, on Monday the 35-year-old revealed via his official Twitter account that he still had the desire to fight - pointing towards a possible unification bout with Commonwealth champion Willie Limond as well as hinting towards a desire to fight at Wembley, the venue for Carl Froch's super-middleweight world title rematch with George Groves.
