Limerick boxer Willie ‘Big Bang’ Casey is set to return to the sport after retiring in 2014, Irish Boxing has reported.
The Limerick native will join fellow county man Graeme ‘G-Train’ McCormack’s team.
Casey burst onto the scene in 2010 winning the Prizefighter series on Sky Sports with his aggressive style.
He defeated Paul Niland in November 2010 to win the vacant European Super-Bantamweight title in the University Arena in Limerick.
He relinquished that title to fight Guillermo Rogondeaux for the World Super Bantamweight title which he lost in the first round.
Casey would have several more fights and finished his career 16-3 beating George Gachechiladze in Belfast in late 2014.
Casey will now join Graeme McCormack in Southside Boxing Club who is now being coached by Shaun Kelly.
Casey’s return adds to the growing revival in Limerick boxing with Andy Lee part of the coaching ticket on Tyson Fury’s recent World Heavyweight success against Deontay Wilder.
Paddy Donovan and Jason Harty have both also joined the professional ranks in the past 12-months.
