“I’m ready to return to the world stage. That’s why I’m doing my best and working really hard to get another world title shot. I want to be a world champion if given another chance,” said the 24-year-old Jerusalem, who’s ranked No. 3 in the World Boxing Council (WBC), No. 12 in the World Boxing Organization (WBO) and No. 15 in the International Boxing Federation (IBF).
