Junior Witter: I'll Take Out Gavin By The Fourth Round

British Welterweight Champion Junior Witter say he’ll KO challenger Frankie Gavin inside four rounds when they clash at the York Hall, Bethnal Green, on Thursday 1st November, live and exclusive on BoxNation (Sky Ch. 437/Virgin Ch. 546).
 
Bradford’s Witter, 38, a former WBC World Light-Welterweight Champion, makes the first defence of the Lonsdale belt that he won in May against Colin Lynes, turning back the clock to outpoint Lynes over twelve rounds.
 
With 48 fights under his belt and training at the famous Wincobank Gym in Sheffield, he says he’ll have too much experience for his 27-year-old challenger who’s unbeaten in 13 fights and making his first big step up.
 
Witter said, “I’ve got the experience, know-how and I’ve been there, seen it and done it, what has Frankie Gavin done so far?”
 
“I’ve been in the ring with everyone from Naseem Hamed, Johnny Nelson and Ryan Rhodes to Kell Brook and Kid Galahad.  I’ve mixed it with all weights from flyweights to heavyweights, amateur champions to world champions, so a 13 fight novice doesn’t worry me,”
 
“People will say that I’m 38 and past it going in against a young challenger like Gavin.  My answer is that I’m still mixing it with the youngsters in our gym and the 18, 19 and 20 year olds and that’s keeping me young and fresh,”
 
“There’s nothing in Gavin’s armoury or make up that bothers me, his punches, skills, nothing. Everything he does I’ll have an answer for and I’ll take him out by the fourth round,”
 
Witter v Gavin headlines a top quality card featuring unbeaten talents: Oldham welterweight star Ronnie Heffron; fast-rising Welsh super-featherweight Craig Evans; welterweight Gary Corcoran from Wembley; Cheshunt’s super-flyweight Charlie Hoye; plus top middleweight prospect John Dignum from Bowers Gifford and Bushey light-heavyweight ace Miles Shinkwin.

[QUOTE=hougigo;12636689]Hatton vs Witter 2013. Dubbed, better late than never[/QUOTE] Hatton has already been asked about a potential Witter fight, he said no. It seems he is more focused on Brook and Khan from Britain.

Gavin has great talent but little power. To have any chance at all of becoming a world class pro he needs to get back down to 140, stay there, fight often and keep in shape between bouts. Does he have…

I'd have given Gavin one last chance it he were not fighting someone so awkward and hard to look against in Witter. I see him (Gavin) winning on points in a dull, close fight. He really needs to buck his…

I ain't seen Gavin fight in ages last time I watched him he looked like he could punch as hard as malignaggi is he really the real deal?
