Gavin: I'm Getting Better, I Want The Euro Title Now

Frankie Gavin continued his ring apprenticeship with a ninth-round stoppage of Jason Welborn at a packed Walsall Town Hall. The former world amateur champion has experienced a turbulent four years since turning professional but made progress in 2012, picking up the Lonsdale belt with a dull but professional win over awkward former world champion Junior Witter.

The Birmingham man, with a record of 14-0 (10KOs) heading in, was expected to make his first defence in style against Rowley Regis puncher Welborn (11-1, 5KOs), who freely admitted in the build-up he could not match Gavin for quality.

Welborn looked increasingly desperate as the bout reached the seventh, lunging in and being punished in the process. A left to the body then had Welborn down on one knee and though he rose, Gavin slammed in power shots to head and body until referee Ian John-Lewis stepped in to save the dejected Black Country man further punishment.

Gavin said: "I'm getting better and was pleased with my performance tonight. Training wasn't ideal as I injured my left arm during camp and my son Daniel was admitted to hospital with illness last night but I showed my mental strength in there. I'm ranked number one for the European title and I'd like to go for that now. I'm ready."

Good win for Frankie and hopefully that Euro title will be the next step. Possibly for a vacant title - but they will win purses and stage a good show in the spring possibly on a support of cleverly or burns card.
