STEVE Collins has secured a boxing licence at the age of 48.

The former world champion's success in obtaining the licence brings his comeback bout with Roy Jones Junior a step closer.


Collins has previously indicated that the American has agreed to fight him - but the next step in the process will be securing lucrative television rights to the bout - and a venue.


Collins has indicated that venues in the middle east and former Soviet block are being looked at for the fight.


The Dubliner was world middleweight champion in the late 90s.
