Frankie Gavin Withdraws, Frank Warren is Furious

By Terence Dooley

BoxingScene.com can confirm that Frankie Gavin has withdrawn from tomorrow night’s WBO Intercontinental welterweight title defence against France’s Frank Haroch Horta.  The bout was due to take place at Salford’s Bowlers Exhibition Centre and was to be carried by BoxNation.  It was to be Gavin’s first outing under his new training team of Jimmy and Mark Tibbs only for Frankie to walk away from the bout citing personal reasons.

Frank Warren confirmed the news when speaking to boxingnewsonline.net earlier today.  “He’s just gone.  I heard he went to [former trainer] Anthony Farnell’s house.  I’m sick and tired of it.  I wouldn’t even talk him into fighting because if I did and something happened it would be my fault,” said Warren.

Ireland’s Dean Byrne, who made his UK debut when beating Michael Frontin last Friday night, will step into Gavin’s shoes and is expected to take on Horta in the show’s new headline act.  The 15-0 (6) Irishman looked to have shed some rust in his eight round decision win over Frontin and will be chomping at the bit after waiting for months to make his FWP debut.

Total disgrace. He now has form for pulling out of fights which doesn't bode well for his future. Huge amateur talent wasted as a pro.
