Frankie Gavin will look to add another win to his ledger when he fights again in less than a month.
The Birmingham man, a former IBF welterweight world title challenger, returned to winning ways on May 13 in his home city, outpointing Frech funny man Renald Garrido.
And he has now decided that he wants to remain active.
Gavin has organised, in conjunction with promotional company Eddie Hearn and Matchroom Boxing, an eight-round tick-over fight in just under a fortnight’s time.
He will box over eight rounds at the Lagoon Leisure Centre in Paisley, Scotland, as part of a card being promoted by Limond Boxing Promotions, headed by Willie Limond.
‘Fun Time’, who says he will no longer need that nickname as he will take boxing seriously because he is in the last chance saloon, will then be looking to fight again before the end of the year.
Further details will be revealed in due course.
