ALL Jordan Gill needed was a chance. To prove how good he actually is. Those who had seen him in action, hidden away on undercards, marking time, knew that when it came his way he had to grab it with both hands.
It’s safe to say that since his first fight under the eyes of Dave Coldwell at Doncaster Dome in July 2017, Gill has done that and risen to the heights that observers hoped, and many expected, him to achieve. His win over Ryan Doyle to win the Commonwealth title last October was the breakout moment.
But, it was in March at the East of England Arena in Peterborough, close to his hometown of Chatteris, where he really showed his colours. He marched through Emmanuel Dominguez in rapid fashion to win the WBA International title and force his way into the world rankings.
