Woodhouse wants Gavin

Curtis Woodhouse says he'll KO Peter McDonagh on Saturday - and set up a big showdown with rival Frankie Gavin.

The former professional footballer is chief support at London's York Hall to Liam Walsh's Commonwealth super-featherweight title challenge, live on Sky Sports.

And he's got his sights firmly set on 2007 Amateur world champion Frankie Gavin.

The Brummie is due to challenge Dean Harrison for the Commonwealth light-welterweight title in December.

And Woodhouse is hoping to meet him at the start of 2011.

"Me against Gavin is a natural fight to make," said the Driffield star, who fights again under the Frank Warren banner.

"He's got a great amateur record and I've got nothing but respect for what he has achieved as a professional so far.

"But has he been tested by anyone yet? Not at all.

"He's not had a hard fight, but he'll get one against me if he's man enough to step up to the plate.

"It's taken me a while to find my feet in the pro game, but now I'm on a roll.

"I've stopped my last four opponents, three of them in 10 rounders, and I feel like I'm beginning to get some momentum.

"I've always said that I'll be a better fighter over the championship distance, and I think I've proved that in my last few fights.

"Gavin beat McDonagh back in February, but he couldn't stop him.

"If I knock him out that will send out a big statement, and I don't think Frankie can say no to a fight with me if I do."

Tickets are available from the Frank Warren Promotions Box Office on 01992 550 888.
