The 42-year-old insists his career is not finished despite his lack of high-profile bouts in recent years.

Clottey’s peak came in 2010 when he fought seven-division world champion Manny Pacquiao - a bout which the Ghanaian lost by unanimous decision.

However, he has since been in and out of the ring, with his recently scheduled bout with Britain’s Tommy Jacobs called off.

Clottey says he is still working hard to return to the ring and revealed that he wants another world title shot.

“I won two fights on my return to the ring and that should tell you that I’m not finished,” Clottey said, as quoted by Citisportsonline.

“There are some fights coming in but I have to weigh the options in order to make the right choice.

“As it stands now, I just need a few fights to get me closer to a world title shot and I’m working on a particular fight that could secure me that by close of next year.”

Clottey’s record stands at 47 fights, with 41 wins, 24 of which came by way of knockout.
