TO nobody’s real surprise, Frankie Gavin, 2007 World amateur champion and beaten by Kell Brook in a world-title challenge in the pros, has retired at 33.

The signs had been there for a while that Gavin was losing interest.

He pulled out of a headlining fight in Birmingham a couple of years ago that he saw as a possible steppingstone to a match with former amateur roommate Amir Khan.
