Alex Volkanovski will slip on the gloves once again when he makes his much anticipated return to the octagon in Auckland this June.
The Aussie who made his debut last November against Yusuke Kasuya impressed fans and matchmakers alike with a second round TKO in front of a packed crowd at Rod Laver Arena in Melbourne.
