Frankie Gavin vs. Junior Witter on November 1st
Frankie Gavin believes that he’s ready to step up and rip the British Welterweight title from current champion Junior Witter when they meet at the York Hall, Bethnal Green, on Thursday 1st November.
The unbeaten Birmingham ace faces the toughest test of his career against the former World Boxing Council (WBC) World Champion which will be televised live and exclusive on BoxNation (Sky Ch. 437/Virgin Ch. 546).
Since turning professional in 2009, Gavin – still Britain’s only ever world amateur champion – has won all 13 of his fights with ten stoppages and has marked himself as one of the hot talents in British boxing.
Witter lost his WBC world title to Devon Alexander in August 2009 when he retired on his stool before the start of the ninth round claiming a shoulder injury. He lost two further fights, but a late resurgence in his career has seen him go unbeaten in his last four fights and cause a surprise in May this year when he took the British title from Colin Lynes.
Although the 38-year-old Witter has the upper-hand in experience with 48 fights in a near 15-year career compared to Gavin’s 13-fight unbeaten run, Gavin believes that his youth and aggression will be the key factor in winning.
“This fight for me is the big breakthrough I need in my career that will really make people sit up and take notice,” Said the 27-year-old.
“Witter’s been there, seen it and done it, he’s had nearly four times as many fights as me, he’s got the experience and has proved that he’s still a threat by beating Lynes so he can’t be written off,”
“I can’t compete with his experience but what I’ve got plenty of is youth, aggression and the hunger and desire to become the British champion which I’m desperate to do, nothing will stop me winning it,”
Despite a tricky 2011, Gavin is now settled back in Birmingham with trainer Tom Chaney and says that he will put on a career best showing.
He added, “I feel like I’m getting better and better every day in the gym and this fight can’t come come soon enough, I’m ready to fight right now,”
“Tom’s worked on the game plan and we’re prepared for twelve rounds. At 38, I don’t think that Witter has got the legs to be able to keep up with the pace we’re going to be setting,”
“Witter’s had his time, it’s now my time. You can’t teach an old dog new tricks and I’ll be too much for Witter too handle.”
The undercard features some of the best undefeated young talents in the sport: Oldham welterweight Ronnie Heffron, Welsh super-featherweight Craig Evans, Wembley welterweight Gary Corcoran, Cheshunt super-flyweight Charlie Hoy, Canning Town lightweight Billy Morgan and the pro-debut of Bushey light-heavyweight Miles Shinkwin.
