Jason Cook is the former European and IBO lightweight champion, who as an amateur won a Silver medal for Wales at the 1994 Commonwealth Games in Canada.
Currently the Welsh light-welterweight champion, he gets the opportunity he deserves on Saturday night, when he tops the bill at the York Hall Bethnal Green against ‘Fun Time’ Frankie Gavin in an eliminator for the British light-welterweight tile.
With a record of 31 fights, 27 wins, 14 by KO, with just 3 losses and one draw, the draw coming against British champion Lenny Daws in a tight contest which went down to the wire. Cook 35, hopes to get a return fight with Daws should he upset the apple cart and defeat former amateur star and hot British prospect Gavin.
Then on the 4th September 2009 after a four year layoff, Cook made his comeback to the ring against Scott Jordan, finishing the fight in the fourth round with a devastating trade mark left hook.
A big right in the tenth almost sent Cook to the canvas and the final two rounds saw the Welshman hold on.
