Former world champion Junior Witter is to return to the ring after an 18-month absence on February 19.


The British star, who won the WBC light-welterweight title back in 2006, is stepping up to welterweight and will make his debut in the new division against Victor Lupo in Canada.


The 10-round bout will take place in Mississauga, Ontario.


Witter, now 36, has not fought since his world-title clash with current 140lbs king Devon Alexander in August 2009 but is determined to return to top.


Promoter Adam Harris, president of Hennessy Sports Canada, said: "Junior has fought the best in the world at 140lbs. When Witter steps into the Hershey Centre ring, fans will be treated to not only a former WBC champion, but truly one of the best fighters in the world making his welterweight debut."


'The Hitter' has just three defeats on his record - to current light-welterweight champions Alexnader and Timothy Bradley and former king Zab Judah.


The Romanian-born Lupo, who now lives in Toronto, has suffered just one loss in his 21-fight career.
