Norwich boxer Nathan Dale has been given the all clear to resume fighting after shaking off a troublesome hand injury.
Dale fought just once last year – a July win over Nathan Hardy in Norwich – after surgery to correct the problem.
However, the injury persisted, leaving the 26-year-old former IBF world youth welterweight champion a frustrated onlooker as his planned move to the lightweight ranks hit rocks.
But it looks like the future is bright after Dale tweeted: 'After numerous expert diagnoses from many specialists at the hospital and following detailed examination of my recent C scan, I can finally announce that I have been given the all-clear from my recent hand injury. The last few months have been difficult, and tested my mental resolve. I can't thank my family, friends, sponsors and team-mates enough for the support and encouragement over these past few months.
'New year, new goals. I certainly haven't been sitting around watching daytime TV. I have maintained my high level of fitness for which I am known, kept to my strict healthy lifestyle and maintained control of my nutritional intake.
