Frankie Gavin: This Will Be End Of The Road For Witter

Frankie Gavin says he’ll 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 he’s confident he’ll 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.
 
“Witter’s had a good career, he’s 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.
 
“Full credit to him for turning back the clock to beat Colin Lynes and win the title, but I could have beaten Lynes.  I’m going to give Witter the hardest night he’s ever had, I know that at his age and the amount of fight he’s had he hasn’t got the legs to be able to keep up with the pace and force I’m going to be setting and I’ll be looking to take him out from mid to late in the fight.
 
“His trainer Dominic Ingle says that Witter has the body of 27-year-old, outside he may have, but inside he’ll be more like a 57-year-old.  I’m too young and fresh for him and it’s now my time to step up to the mantle and start a new era.
 
“Saying that, I’ve not taken Witter lightly. I’m prepared for the best Witter to turn up.”
 
Gavin is still Britain’s only ever world amateur champion and despite being hailed as one of the country’s best natural talents, he says there are still doubters but they will be silenced with the performance he intends to put on.
 
“This is my moment to step up and prove that I’m the real deal,” added Gavin. 
 
“I’ve had a difficult year in my personal life, but that’s all sorted now and thanks to my trainer Tom Chaney I’m back to my best and I believe that I can fulfill my full potential and beyond with him,”
 
“I’m not looking at the past, I’m looking to the future. I’m really excited about what is ahead and what my promoter Frank Warren has got lined up, but I’ve got to beat Witter on Thursday night to make happen and I’ll do it in style.”
