Ex-Lennox Lewis promoter Kellie Maloney announced her return to boxing on Thursday and has already made her first two signings.

Maloney, then known as Frank, took Lewis all the way to the top of the sport in her previous dealings in the ring, ending the first spell in charge of David Price.

The 61 year-old is now making a comeback after a very public transition from a man to a woman and has inked heavyweight contender Gary Cornish and youngster Tony Jones.

Without a TV deal, Maloney admits she is starting at the bottom once again, but says her passion for pugilism led to what became an inevitable announcement.
