Frankie Gavin Hires Jimmy Tibbs as His New Trainer

By Terence Dooley

Birmingham’s Frankie Gavin has split with his trainer Anthony Farnell and will be coached by Jimmy Tibbs; the 25-year-old WBO Inter-Continental welterweight titlist hooked with ‘Arnie’ before turning professional in 2009 but has decided to work with Tibbs at the TKO Gym in London.

Gavin won gold at the 2007 World Amateur Championships, he was sent home from the 2008 Olympic Games after fears were raised over his ability to safely make the lightweight limit.  ‘Funtime’ has a perfect pro slate, 11-0 (8), and is believed to have remained on terms with Farnell, revealing that he had decided to leave Manchester for personal reasons when confirming the decision.

Gavin needed a change for sure. Really hope he sorts himself out as he has so much natural talent.

Gavin has paid out of his own pocket for a nutritionist so he should look a lot better in the future. I would prefer him to seek training in America rather than over here.
