Back in the Ring

LAS VEGAS, Nevada () -- Former three-time champion Alexis Arguello, 42, who has fought only once in the past eight years, has won tentative approval to return to the ring.


Arguello will fight a scheduled 10-round bout Jan. 21 against Scott Walker, a Phoenix fighter with a record of 17-3-1.


The Nevada State Athletic Commission approved Arguello on Thursday, with the condition he pass additional eye and heart tests, under state regulations for boxers over age 36.
