Frankie Gavin: Ready for showdown with Leonard Bundu

Frankie Gavin believes he can follow in the footsteps of his friend Billy Joe Saunders by beating Leonard Bundu in Wolverhampton on Friday to become European welterweight champion.

Saunders defeated Italian Emanuele Blandamura last weekend to add the European middleweight belt to his British and Commonwealth titles and it now it’s Gavin’s turn to attempt to become a triple champion.

Italian Bundu is unbeaten but Birmingham star Gavin is confident of victory whilst remaining wary of the threat that Bundu will provide.

“Billy had a fantastic win last Saturday and now it’s my turn to make sure I win the European title and keep it here,” said Gavin.

“Nothing is getting in the way of me winning the European title, I’ve achieved everything else I’ve set out to do so far in my career and this is the next step for me.”
