YORK's newest professional boxer Cam Shaw has revealed that he could be back in action as soon as September.

Just a week ago, Shaw eased to victory against Sweden’s Edward Bjorklund via a 40-36 points decision at the Magna Centre in Rotherham, following a successful stint in the amateurs where he won a couple of Yorkshire titles and represented England.

Shaw has revealed that his team are looking for a return to the ring this autumn, with Hull understood to be a potential location for the bout.

“Me and my team are looking at boxing next either in September or October,” said the 21-year-old.

“It is a fairly quick turnaround, but I’d be out next week if I could.

“It’s all about getting ready for the right show and making sure that my fans can make it down there. I’m just taking things one step at a time and seeing what comes around fight by fight.”

“To be honest, after my last fight, I’m looking forward to having a rest now. Given that the June fight in York fell through, I’ve been in camp for 16 weeks - which is longer than most world title fights!

“You’ve got to enjoy your rest when it comes around in this sport and that’s what I’ll be doing to make sure that I’m ready to return to camp for a fight this autumn.”

Like many of the boxers on the small-hall circuit, Shaw relies upon ticket sales from his loyal band of fans in order to fight on shows and says he's thankful for their support.

“Fighters like myself and Michael Fafera (light heavyweight from York) are going about things the hard way,” he added.

“We’re selling tickets ourselves and promoting ourselves as best we can to local fans, without the backing of a major promoter.”

“I'd just like to thank everyone that bought a ticket for my professional debut and made it such a special night. I can't thank them enough."

Looking ahead to the future, Shaw stated that he’s looking to go down the traditional route of domestic titles before moving onwards with his career.

“To win something like the English or British title before anything else would be great," said Shaw.

“I’d love to follow in the footsteps of a fighter like Josh Warrington, who also began on the small hall scene and won English, British and European titles before stepping up in levels."
