Billy Limov’s return to the ring, after a four-year absence, is gathering pace.

The Deception Bay Boxing Club middleweight won his second bout in four weeks, with a unanimous decision from the judges over Dimps Gillies at the Eatons Hill Hotel on Saturday.

Tough opponent

“Dimps was a tough fighter. He’s very fit and really came back into it in the last two rounds.”

Ethan Law, who trains at Deception Bay Boxing Club, will be back in the ring on September 11 at the Gold Coast Convention Centre.

Law, who is with Dwayne Tindall of BodyShot Boxing in Caboolture, will be defending his Australasian middleweight title.
