Frankie Gavin License Reinstated By BBBoC

By Terence Dooley

Birmingham’s Frankie Gavin (22-2, 13 early) has had his BBBoC licence reinstated by the Board and the 30-year-old welterweight will be free to fight from May.

Gavin was hit with a ban after being found guilty of affray last year following a fight outside a bar in Somerset. He was handed a five-month sentence, which was suspended for 12, 180 hours community service and was hit with a £1800 fine. Gavin also paid costs to the six victims.

However, the Board have been told that Gavin was not an instigator; he initially “stood back”, according to the Birmingham Evening Mail, and his role was downplayed to the extent that the BBBoC has decided to lift his ban early and prior to the end of his suspended sentence.

It means that the former British and Commonwealth titlist can now return to work and set-up his first fight since losing to Kell Brook in six rounds for the IBF welterweight title in May of last year.

A local derby with Sam Eggington was on the cards prior to the affray charge and could still be an option for Gavin, especially now that Eggington is looking to rebuild following his decision defeat to Bradley Skeete earlier this month.

Does anyone know where in Somerset the offence happened?

Hopefully Eddie gives the public what they want and makes Gavin v Skeete 2.
