Frankie Gavin Likes His Chances Against Kerman Lejerraga

Frankie Gavin is set to travel to Bilbao this weekend in preparation for fight week ahead of his European Welterweight Showdown with Champion Kerman Lejerraga next Saturday.

The former World Amateur Champion takes on Basque hero Lejerraga at the Bilbao Exhibition Centre next Saturday, 17th November but, due to his well documented fear of flying, will set sail for mainland Spain on Sunday.

This will be the second time he’s made the journey having travelled to Bilbao last month for the press conference.

“I’m fit and ready now,” Gavin told bcb-promotions.com. “Me and my trainer, Malcolm Melvin, will sail this weekend and have a good final week out in Spain. I’ll acclimatise to my surroundings and I know a little of the city having travelled there for the press conference.

“My manager, Errol Johnson, will fly over with Paul Mann (BCB’s Head Trainer) later in the week.”

The former British & Commonwealth King is under no illusions as to the task at hand. ‘The Revolver’, a Bilbao native, is unbeaten in 26 professional fights with 21 KO’s to his name. He’s stopped fellow Brits Bradley Skeete and Denton Vassell along the way and, although Gavin has also defeated the pair, the Brummie boxer is rightly wary of his opponent’s power.

“Kerman is a hard hitter,” he added. “He’s a tough lad. He likes to brawl and I know I’m up against it a bit. I’m not Denton Vassell or Bradley Skeete though. Bradley was out here last year and he froze a little. The atmosphere is intimidating but I’m prepared for that. It’s only me and Kerman in the ring and I know I’ve not got many chances left.

“However I have to get there; however I have to win, I’m bringing that European title back to the UK.”
