NEWARK’S Commonwealth super-lightweight champion Nina Bradley struggled to cope with the first loss of her professional career, a 10th round stoppage loss to Terri Harper in March. “I was down and shut myself away, even though there was no shame in losing the way I did,” Bradley tells Boxing News. “I’m proud of what I’ve achieved in boxing. I wasn’t going to come back, I’ve got a little boy to think about, but we’ve got big reasons to return now.”

The 31-year-old is scheduled to return at Grantham Meres Leisure Centre on September 21 on the Carl Greaves Promotions ‘The Rising Stars’ show. Bradley will dedicate her comeback to her niece, Grace Brocklesby, who passed away in tragic circumstances earlier this year.
