FRANKIE GAVIN saw a nightmare completed when he suffered a knockout loss to Kerman Lejarraga at the Bilbao Exhibition Centre on Saturday (November 17).

He lost his shot at the European welterweight title the day before on the scales when he came in more than four pounds over the limit, weighing in at 151¼lbs.

Issues with making weight have plagued Gavin throughout his career. But despite the disrupted build up to the fight, Gavin tried to put his skills to work to outbox the strong Spaniard. He picked out openings to set up his southpaw left.
