GAVIN MCDONNELL is chomping at the bit ahead of his WBC world super-bantamweight title eliminator on the Carl Frampton v Scott Quigg undercard on February 27.

The unbeaten Doncaster native faces Panamanian slugger Jorge Sanchez for the WBC Silver bauble, with a win lining him up a shot at champion Julio Ceja – the same man Gavin’s twin brother Jamie beat to become world champion for the first time.

His trainer, Dave Coldwell, is thrilled for his man and insists this is the right path towards a world title.
