Jackiewicz is just the right opponent Gavin needs. He'll provide Gavin with the chance to go some rounds and make him work, barring a poor stoppage. I'm not too sold on Gavin power wise and this is a good step…

Another Micky Mouse made up title. FG would be better off chasing the English or British title.

Good bout for Gavin. Hope he turns up. Jackiewicz very tough, got taken apart by Kell Brook but been a decent late bloomer apart from that.
