FRANKIE GAVIN KO’d Christmas and now wants to do the same to Jason Welborn next week.

Unbeaten Gavin makes the first defence of his British welterweight title in Walsall on Friday.

The Birmingham bruiser is raring to go after a spartan Christmas spent training in the gym instead of eating turkey.

“It was hard to take a step away from everything at Christmas but it needed to be done,” he said.

“I’ve worked my a**e off in the gym with my trainer Tom Chaney and we’ve had the best training camp so far to prepare for this fight.”

Chaney said: “Frankie’s been looking great, he’s been in the gym every day over Christmas and new year and all the hard work he’s put in will show on the night.” Gavin, 27, won the British title with a ­unanimous points win over Junior Witter in November.

He said: “I’m in this business to win world titles and beating Welborn is another step towards that aim for me.

“The next step for me would be the European title, which is a belt I’d love to win to show just how much I am improving.

“I’m in the best shape of my life. I’m as fit as a butcher’s dog and I can’t wait for next Friday night.

“I feel I’ve improved a lot since the Witter fight.

“He was probably the most ­awkward opponent I could have faced, but I beat him well.

“Welborn’s style will suit me down to the ground. He comes forward and likes to have a tear-up. He’ll get destroyed against me when he does that. I’ll be hitting him with so many angles and combinations that he’ll be taken apart – he won’t stand a chance.”

Welborn, 26, has won three of his last four fights by stoppage. But Gavin added: “We haven’t underestimated him.

“After all, he’s strong and he’s a big puncher. But no disrespect to him, if I can’t beat him I may as well give up.

“Winning the British title was a dream come true, but keeping hold of it will be hard. It’s a prestigious belt and Welborn wants it, but I’ll be leaving with it.”

Which is why this fight shouldn't have happened. Gavin's talented but has still retained an amateur style, he needs to be facing fighters at a much higher level than the Welborn's of this world. I'd like to see him fight at least 4 more times this year. Matthew Hatton next and then work hi...
