The stand-out Big British fight of the weekend and make no mistake there are plenty of crackers! Is when British champion Frankie Gavin and Commonwealth belt holder Denton Vassell put their titles and unbeaten records on the line tonight (Friday) in one of the real trade match-ups of the boxing calender, a potentially explosive all-British encounter between the No2 and No3 welterweight’s in the country, Kell Brook leads the way at number No1. Southpaw Gavin, 27, from Birmingham is the former world amateur champion and one of the most naturally gifted boxers produced in many a year from these shores. He is said to be in lean, mean shape for the biggest fight of his 15-0, 11 KO, career. The Lonsdale belt holders last two fights were against Junior Witter last November to claim the British title and then followed that with a successful defence against Jason Welborn in January.
[sam_ad id=”1″ codes=”true”]Vassell’s own boxing ability is not to be under estimated, but Gavin is more superior without doubt, he was the world No1 as an amateur and that says it all. For Vassell his keys to victory will be to cut the ring down and close the range between himself and Gavin. When inside he will have to let the shots go to head and body arms, whatever, look to hurt his man, with the hope of slowing him down, taking away his legs and trying to force a stoppage in the later rounds. For the betting fans! Gavin on points or Vassell late stoppage – It’s a 50/50 battle on paper and this fight will bring out the best in both of them, but whoever proves to be that little bit better and wants it more will prevail.
