Jordan Gill Sets Up Ryan Doyle Clash With One-Round Wales Win

By Elliot Foster

Jordan Gill will fight for the Commonwealth title sooner rather than later after his latest victory.

The featherweight, who beat Jason Cunningham in a British title eliminator earlier back in February, is set to challenge Ryan Doyle for the rainbow strap in the coming months.

Gill has now boxed three times this year and his most recent win came on the untelevised portion of the supporting cast of Joe Cordina’s WBA International lightweight title defence against Sean Dodd, with the pair vying for the vacant Commonwealth belt.


‘The Thrill’, 24, is trained by Dave Coldwell and, having boxed on the undercard of gym-mate Tony Bellew’s rematch win over David Haye at the O2 Arena in London back in May, took just one minute and 52 seconds at the Ice Arena in Cardiff, Wales, to get rid of Hungary’s David Berna.

Berna was taken out by Michael Conlan back in March inside the second round of eight.

And with Gill managing to do it in a quicker time that the Belfast sensation, he set himself up for a title crack in style, with further details to come in due course regarding the date and venue for the fight between Gill and Doyle.

Boxing Scene understands the fight will take place on October 27 at the O2 Arena in London, as part of the supporting cast to Ted Cheeseman’s vacant British super-welterweight title clash against Asinia Byfield and Ryan Walsh’s British featherweight title rematch against Isaac Lowe.

Meanwhile, there were wins for Gamal Yafai, Kody Davies, Daniel Barton and Nathan Thorley.

Thorley extended his unblemished ledger to 11 fights, with five early, while Yafai got back in the win column with a sensational body shot stoppage of Jose Aguilar in the third of six rounds and will now be back in action on September 8 at the Arena Birmingham, as part of the supporting cast to Amir Khan’s welterweight showdown against Samuel Vargas.

Kody Davies maintained his flawless record as the Hayemaker Ringstar-promoted super-middleweight outpointed Anthony Fox by 60 points to 56.

Daniel Barton was also forced to go the distance with Yailton Neves. Neves was down in the second round from a right hand, but the referee scored the bout 40 points to 36 after four.

And Scott Cardle kicked off proceedings by getting off to a winning start under his new training team.

The former Joe Gallagher-trained lightweight, who is a former British champion and is now being trained by Matthew Ellis, outpointed Michael Mooney and secured a win for the first time since last October, having been drilled inside two rounds by outright British champion Lewis Ritson back in February.

He will be, like the aforementioned Yafai, back in action on the Khan-Vargas card next month.
