Frankie Gavin ready for Amir Khan challenge
Frankie Gavin, the unbeaten Welterweight boxer has insisted that he is ready and willing to put British boxer Amir Khan back to his place once he has finished with his bout against Floyd Mayweather Jr. next year in Las Vegas.
Despite suffering two losses in his last two years in the sport, first to Lamont Peterson and then against to Danny Garcia and after his win against Julio Diaz in controversial circumstances last summer, he is ready to challenge the unbeaten Pound for Pound boxing king and the Light Middleweight world title holder Mayweather Jr. albeit he has absolutely no chances of winning, according to Gavin.
Gavin, the British and Commonwealth Welterweight champion has previous experience of sparring with Amir Khan as team mates for Great Britain while amateurs and he believes he has the tools to inflict even more pain on the Bolton based Khan, should they ever have the chance to fight against each other.
Giving mentioned that he is of the same level as Khan right now adding that he doesn’t mean any disrespect to him but he is a fighter on the decline. Gavin stated that Khan is not the fighter he once was, not the fighter who beat several big names during his heyday.
Giving eluded to the last fight Khan had against Julio Diaz and mentioned that it was evident from that fight that Khan has lost much of his edge and having seen that fight, Gavin believes he could beat him. Gavin stated that many would laugh at this claim because of the tremendous speed of the 26 year old but Gavin mentioned he hasn’t got a bad punch himself and it can easily beat Amir Khan.
It’s up to Khan now whether he responds to these claims by Gavin and gives him the chance.
