FRESH FOCUS: Harry Dhami may quit the boxing ring

FORMER British welterweight champion Harry Dhami has admitted he could quit the fight game.

The Walderslade boxer is setting up his own gym in Gravesend, the Elite Boxing and Fitness Gym, and says his energies are focused elsewhere.

But the 32-year-old stopped short of announcing his retirement.

He said: "My energy at the moment is focused on bringing kids into boxing as a way of keeping them off the streets. I'm looking to get the gym affiliated with the ABA so I can set up a proper boxing club.

"As for my boxing career, I've been frustrated by a certain amount of politics that stopped me getting the fights I wanted.

"But you have to be realistic and sometimes your body tells you when enough's enough.

"If I decide to call it a day I could be quite content with what I've achieved, especially when other people thought I wouldn't.

"I came back and beat the Midlands area champion in my last fight and then my British title eliminator against Jimmy Vincent fell through, so it's been frustrating for me."
