Veteran bantamweight Brad Pickett has ended his retirement and will return to the cage just 17 months after declaring he was done competing for good.

It was announced today that Pickett (25-14) has signed a multi-fight deal with ACB and is expected to make his promotional debut Aug. 11 in his hometown of London.

“I’m delighted and excited to sign with ACB,” Pickett said in a press release. “They’re a great organization doing exciting things within the sport. I retired as I had fell out of love with the sport. My health and body are great, and coaching the fighters at the gym has given me a desire to return.”

Don't know if this is a good move for him. He's got plenty of fight left in him, no questioning that but can his body continue to endure this? All that brain damage only gets worse with age and lessening power and skill set against hungry young cats.
