Frank Warren on Gavin, Khan-Bradley, Haye-Klitschko

By Frank Warren

BRITISH boxing is on a high and is packed with talent.

And you can add Frankie Gavin to our roster of potential world champions.

He was in great form last weekend with his seventh-round stoppage of Michael Lomax.

He came in as a sub but was training for a fight and looked in shape.

But the way Gavin won the fight was impressive. He didn't waste a punch and there's so much more to come.

I want him to fight for the British light-welterweight title next but new champion Ashley Theophane isn't interested.

I'm not surprised he said no, given the way Gavin boxed on Saturday. That same night, Theophane beat Lenny Daws at Wembley to lift the British title. It capped an unlucky week for promoter Mick Hennessy, who also saw his other British champion John O'Donnell get knocked off by Craig Watson.

Of his other stars, John Murray has joined my camp, while Darren Barker has signed with Matchroom. So his outfit was bigging up Tyson Fury.

After Fury beat Marcelo Luiz Nascimento, he claimed that British heavyweight champion Dereck Chisora had ducked him to fight Wladimir Klitschko.

Do me a favour! Why wouldn't Chisora chose to fight the world's No 1 heavyweight and double champion instead of a 14-fight prospect whose only selling point is his name.

Haye's No Maker

DAVID HAYE should stop telling everyone he want to be the best in the world - when he continues to dodge making a fight with one of the Klitschkos.

I DON'T blame David Haye for refusing to make a fight with one of the Klitschkos.

This week he ruled himself out of a fight against Vitali.

But Haye should stop telling everyone he wants to be the best in the world - and he is running out of options.

His mandatory challenger is Rusian Chagaev.

But the Uzbekistan boxer has a rare strain of hepatitis, which means he may not be able to fight in the UK.

AMIR KHAN and Tim Bradley have been offered a licencing fee of £1.9million for a fight in the summer from HBO.

It stays the same if Khan loses to Paul McCloskey but gives promoters Golden Boy a two-fight extension over Khan. It upsets promoters, including me.

WBO world super-featherweight champion Ricky Burns is a big hit in Scotland.

We started a big poster campaign in Glasgow promoting his title defence against Joseph Laryea on March 12.

But as soon as they went up fans were taking the Rocky-style posters down as souvenirs.

[QUOTE=GRANDSLAM;10161343]If you're not signed to Warren then he'll slag you off, that's what I don't like about him. Plus he bigs up people like Kell Brook who's best win is against Michael Jennings on a CUT. In the next sentence…

Not sure what he means by the Khan-Bradley comment. Is he saying that Khan has to sign a two-fight extention to his GBP deal in order to fight Bradley?

[QUOTE=gingeralbino;10159795]ive a feeling thats Kells own fault, im not sold that he takes boxing seriously. But ive heard Warren trying to get a fight with Jones a few times, and put Brook forward as an opponent for Khan's McClsokey date…

[QUOTE=Sparked_1985;10159790]He is bit cut-throat. But he is pretty much running things at the moment. I don't think he has ever had a more talented stable of fighters. Which is why he is chucking them to the wolves early. That said,…
