Willesden cruiserweight will be back in action on May 26

At 36 years of age, Willesden cruiserweight Ossie Jervier is a man on a mission.

After losing a close decision against Wadi Camacho for the Southern Area title, Jervier appeared live on Sky Sports, giving leading cruiserweight Isaac Chamberlain plenty to think about.

A change of trainer and a link up with Xavier Miller at IQ Gym in Neasden has revitalised the 36-year-old.

In his first fight under Miller in March of this year, Jervier despatched Kristof Demendi in three rounds.

“I am now hunting for titles and am going to make my family proud as I show what I can really do,” said the Willesden cruiserweight.

“Age is only a number and I am fitter and fresher than ever.”

Jervier is back in the ring at York Hall on May 26 when he takes on Adam Williams, who recently floored the previously-undefeated Richard Rikaporhe at The O2.

The 36-year-old, though, already has plans for what will happen following his next bout, adding: “After Williams, I am gunning for titles”.

Jervier’s manager Steve Goodwin said: “I always tell people about the Dennis Andries story.

“Everyone wrote him off and in his latter years produced a ‘Cinderella story, Ossie can do the same.”
