Steve Collins reveals his plan to fight long-time rival Roy Jones Jnr despite being absent from the ring for 15 years.

Steve Collins has revealed that he wants to return to boxing after an absence of 15 years.

The 48-year-old says that he will face his long-time rival Roy Jones Jnr, whom he wanted to fight in the 1990s.

"It's not a comeback as such, at my age I'm too old for that, but it will be the end of a 15-year grudge," The Telegraph quotes Collins as saying.

"I spoke to Roy and we're going to get it on. He wants one more fight before he retires and this is the one he wants."

Collins will take medical tests next week to ascertain his fitness for the fight.
