The former British middleweight champion steps up to 168lb for the first time at Walsall Town Hall on Saturday,March 9.

The 29-year-old features on BCB Promotions’ show, with the bill titled ‘Pride of the Midlands.’

‘The Baggies Bomber’ will have the support of West Bromwich Albion fans behind him, as a season ticket holder and columnist for the match-day programme.

A rebuilding process currently awaits Langford, after relinquishing and failing to regain the British crown in two blistering clashes with Jason Welborn.

He’s held the Commonwealth and WBO Inter-Continental straps during his pro career and retains a thirst for further honours.

He said: “It’s a new chapter for me now. I feel better already at super middle.

“The next two years are massive for me and I think it’ll only be a win or two before I’m back in the mix, but I also suspect there will be one or two that’ll avoid me. I don’t think most of the domestic title holders would pick me out as an opponent.”
