AFTER he suffered a stoppage defeat in October to Danny Roman, Gavin McDonnell is was once again plotting a route towards the pinnacle of the sport and claims that his ambition has only grown since the loss.

McDonnell knows that the big fights he craves won’t come straight away, but he is looking forward to getting back in the ring in the first quarter of 2019 after taking a rare, but deserved, break from the sport.

The two-time world title challenger from Doncaster always maintains weight and, after enjoying Christmas with his family, will be back in camp the day after as he targets one last push for glory.
