GIVE Frankie Gavin six weeks and he’ll fight anybody. Yes, anybody. That’s the message he wants to send; the message he needs to send.

He’s 32 years of age now, without a promoter, without a full-time trainer, and could do with an opportunity. Not desperate exactly, but hungry, for sure. The amateur exploits, the World Championships gold medal, were a long time ago. More than a decade ago, in fact.

Recently, Gavin was offered the chance to box Josh Kelly in Cardiff on March 31. It was the sort of opportunity he’s after; the sort of opponent he wants. But an alternative date in June, somewhere in Newcastle, is more to his liking.
