British light-welterweight champion Curtis Woodhouse has reversed his decision to quit boxing.

The former footballer had vowed to leave the sport in the lead-up to his fight wiith Darren Hamilton last month, win, lose or draw.

However, his shock victory over the champion, which realised the 35-year-old's dream on taking up his second career, has given him a change of heart.

"Just to let you all know I've decided that I'm going to carry on fighting, still got the fire and the hunger so it's not time to go," he wrote on Twitter.

"Would always be asking myself what might have been if I walked away now, hoping @davidcoldwell can make a few more big nights for me.

"A few big fights that can be made for me, home and abroad, let's see what comes up, nothing lined up yet but a few exciting options."

Woodhouse later suggested a unification fight with Commonwealth champion Willie Limond is one possibility, while lightweight Tommy Coyle has also put his name in the mix.
