A boxing match back in May 2011 was an event neither man will ever forget.
For Sheffield’s Nicki Smedley, the English super lightweight title scrap at Hillsborough Arena brought a wholly unwelcome watershed - a defeat costing him his unbeaten record after 14 winning fights.
It signalled the end of the promising Sheffield boxer’s involvement in the sport for four and a half years.
Yet, for his opponent Nigel Wright, victory had a considerably worse outcome.
Some time after 10-rounder, Wright failed a brain scan test, the procedure detecting a bleed on the brain, and the Boxing Board voted not to allow the 32-year-old to campaign ever again.
At least Smedley, aged 29, now has a second chance at the sport.
And he makes his return against Duane Green, from Norwich, at Doncaster Dome. It will given Smedley and fight fans the answer to the quest: “Has he still got it?”
The Sheffielder’s return is partly motivated by his domestic circumstances.
“I grew up in Woodthorpe and I think the area has gone down a lot” he says. “I have family commitments now and want to give my son a better life somewhere else.
“Yeah, there will be ring rust after four and a half years away.
“But I have matured and learned a lot in the time I have been away.
“When I stopped boxing some of the logs on the fire had burned out - but I have put fresh ones on now!”
Smedley, who trains at Lower Manor gym, shot up to nearly 15 stones when he was weigh-training.
But he says: “In 12 weeks I have lost three and a half stone” he said.
“Saturday’s fight will be at 11 stone - but I could have come in at 10 and a half. Next year I will definitely be campaigning at light welterweight, 10 stone. There is nothing (talent-wise) in the light welterweight division and I can clean up there. Tyrone Nurse is British champion, so it tells you its not a very good weight division.”
Smedley has his eyes on international prestige.
“I want to win belt and titles - I want to start by going down the Commonwealth route.”
As for Saturday in Doncaster, he says: “I will see how it goes in the first round and will try to KO him, but if I don’t I will use the rounds to get rid of the ring rust.
“I won’t be nervous, I have done this since I was 10” said the fighter, who has sold 120 tickets for the show.
