Jordan Gill Back, Has Return Set For March 28 In London

Jordan Gill will be back in the ring next month.

The former Commonwealth and WBA International featherweight champion has been out of the ring since September.

Gill got back to winning ways in Italy at the back end of 2019 after suffering his maiden career defeat as a professional four months earlier.

Enrique Tinoco of Mexico was in the opposite corner to Gill in May at the Nottingham Arena when the Dave Coldwell-trained fighter was suffering from illness beforehand and was dropped three times before being pulled out at the end of the eighth round.

He came back, outpointed Yesner Talavera at the Tuscany Hall in Florence and was set to fight for a fourth time in the year –– on December 19 –– at the famous York Hall venue in Bethnal Green, London, exclusively live on Sky Sports and DAZN, as part of a JDNXTGEN card.

But painless subacute thyroiditis put paid to that outing and forced ‘The Thrill’ to be on the sidelines until it cleared up.

And it has now been revealed that ‘The Thrill’ will return on March 28 at the O2 Arena.

Gill has been confirmed as an addition to the supporting cast of David Avanesyan’s long-awaited rescheduled showdown against Josh Kelly in the capital, with the former’s European welterweight title at stake.

“[I] can’t wait to get back in there and push on to huge fights this year,” said Gill, who will be joined on the card by Conor Benn, the Tony Sims-trained undefeated welterweight prospect, as well as Joshua Buatsi, who returns as he continues on his quest towards a world title fight.

Ted Cheeseman, the former British super-welterweight champion whose last outing was a defeat at the hands of Scott Fitzgerald back in October last year, will be back in action alongside Commonwealth middleweight champion Felix Cash and debutant former Team GB lady Ellie Scotney,

There is a mouthwatering welterweight showdown between Luther Clay and Chris Kongo as the former defends his WBO Global title against the Dillian

Whyte-managed prospect and it is understood that further additions to the card will be revealed in due course.
