Frankie Gavin says heíll retire British Welterweight Champion Junior Witter once and for all when they clash this Thursday night at the York Hall, Bethnal Green.
The unbeaten Birmingham ace has only had 13 fights but heís confident heíll finish off the 38-year-old wily veteran to claim his Lonsdale belt, live and exclusive on BoxNation (Sky Ch. 437/Virgin Ch. 546).
Even though Witter, the former WBC World Light-Welterweight Champion, has never been stopped in 48 fights, Gavin reckons he could be the first.
ďWitterís had a good career, heís won the world title, plus Commonwealth, European and British titles, but I believe that this will finally be the end of the road for him when I take that Lonsdale belt from him.
ďFull credit to him for turning back the clock to beat Colin Lynes and win the title, but I could have beaten Lynes. †Iím going to give Witter the hardest night heís ever had, I know that at his age and the amount of fight heís had he hasnít got the legs to be able to keep up with the pace and force Iím going to be setting and Iíll be looking to take him out from mid to late in the fight.
ďHis trainer Dominic Ingle says that Witter has the body of 27-year-old, outside he may have, but inside heíll be more like a 57-year-old. †Iím too young and fresh for him and itís now my time to step up to the mantle and start a new era.
ďSaying that, Iíve not taken Witter lightly. Iím prepared for the best Witter to turn up.Ē
Gavin is still Britainís only ever world amateur champion and despite being hailed as one of the countryís best natural talents, he says there are still doubters but they will be silenced with the performance he intends to put on.
ďThis is my moment to step up and prove that Iím the real deal,Ē added Gavin.†
ďIíve had a difficult year in my personal life, but thatís all sorted now and thanks to my trainer Tom Chaney Iím back to my best and I believe that I can fulfill my full potential and beyond with him,Ē
ďIím not looking at the past, Iím looking to the future. Iím really excited about what is ahead and what my promoter Frank Warren has got lined up, but Iíve got to beat Witter on Thursday night to make happen and Iíll do it in style.Ē
