Frankie Gavin Gives High Praise To Nathan McIntosh

SLICK Nottingham prospect Nathan McIntosh will head into his biggest fight yet full of confidence after receiving Frankie Gavin's seal of approval.
 
The unbeaten East Midlander has been preparing for his October 1 Midlands Area Welterweight Title clash with Craig Morris at Stoke's Fenton Manor by making regular trips to Birmingham to spar with world-class Gavin.
 
McIntosh, who meets Morris on Hatton Boxing's 'The Beginning', hopes the sessions will give him the edge - and Gavin himself has been more than impressed with his training partner.

Nathan-McIntosh
 
Britain's only world amateur champion, who has a big fight of his own against fellow Brummie Sam Eggington next month, told uko-boxing.com:  "I really rate Nathan. He's a smart, unbeaten fighter and we've had some good sparring. He's skilful and he's got a bit of a bang.
 
"I don't know Craig Morris so I can't make firm predictions but McIntosh is in great shape for the fight."
 
Gavin, like Morris, is a southpaw and 28-year-old McIntosh believes the experience has been invaluable.
 
"I've been sparring Frankie who is obviously a southpaw like Morris," he said.
 
"Frankie's a top lad. When I first sparred him I thought 'Oh God, I'm sparring Frankie Gavin. But it was good. I got good feedback from him and he's been asking me back to do more, because he's got a big fight of his own coming up.
 
"He said I'm good sparring for him and that's good to hear."
 
McIntosh added: "I want to be busier. I'm glad I'm fighting Morris because he's a good name, a good fighter. He comes forward, he's got a good record. He comes to fight and that should suit me to a tee."
