Frankie Gavin believes that he's ready to step up and rip the
British welterweight title from current champion Junior Witter when
they meet at the York Hall, Bethnal Green, on Thursday 1st
The unbeaten Birmingham ace faces the toughest test of his
career against the former WBC world Champion.
"This fight for me is the big breakthrough I need in my career
that will really make people sit up and take notice," said the
"Witter's been there, seen it and done it, he's had nearly four
times as many fights as me, he's got the experience and has proved
that he's still a threat by beating Colin Lynes to win the
title, so he can't be written off.
"I can't compete with his experience but what I've got plenty of
is youth, aggression and the hunger and desire to become the
British champion which I'm desperate to do, nothing will stop me
Despite a unsettled 2011, Gavin is now back in
Birmingham with trainer Tom Chaney and says that he will put on a
career best showing.
He added: "I feel like I'm getting better and better every day
in the gym and this fight can't come come soon enough, I'm ready to
fight right now.
"Tom's worked on the game plan and we're prepared for twelve
rounds. At 38, I don't think that Witter has got the legs to be
able to keep up with the pace we're going to be setting.
"Witter's had his time, it's now my time. You can't teach
an old dog new tricks and I'll be too much for Witter too
