The British and Commonwealth Welterweight champion, Frankie Gavin is looking to make his third defence of his British title on September 21 at the Copper Box Arena.

The undefeated southpaw is looking to leave his mark on the domestic scene and look for big names in the 147lbs division.

In his last fight Gavin demolished Denton Vassell inside seven rounds to add the Commonwealth belt to his collection.

Fighting on the same bill as Gavin is another undefeated Welterweight Bradley Skeete.

There seemed to be a misunderstanding and difference of information that the two fighter received about a potential clash, in Gavin being told that the fight was on.

Gavin's defence will see him in his seventeenth professional fight against experienced David Barnes who has previously held the British title at Welterweight.

Gavin is looking forward to the fight and ready for the challenge ahead. He told Sky Sports: "I'm taking nothing for granted though, I'm going to torture myself in training and make sure that I'm the fittest, fastest and strongest I've ever been and that everyone is going to see something very special from me on the night."
