Video: Frankie Gavin vs Curtis Woodhouse Press Conference, Interviews

Frank Warren's July 16 card at Echo Arena in Liverpool has taken shape with three announced fights, and one of them will feature welterweight prospect Frankie Gavin (10-0, 8 KO) looking to atone somewhat for his lousy fight in May against Young Mutley. Gavin will face Curtis Woodhouse (15-2, 10 KO) on the card.

The card's main event will be the 130-pound title scrap between Ricky Burns (31-2, 8 KO) and Nicky Cook (30-2, 16 KO), and Tony Bellew (15-0, 10 KO) will meet Ovill McKenzie (18-10, 7 KO) in a rematch of their December fight, which had a controversial stoppage, but was quite a brawl before that, with both men hitting the canvas.

I still rate Gavin quite highly among the prospects in boxing, but I am a bit concerned about his move to welterweight, where he looks thin and just plain small. I'm willing to believe he was ill for the Mutley fight and that's why his energy level seemed so low (and Mutley didn't help make it a fight, either), and the Woodhouse fight should be a better barometer.

After the jump, one-on-one interviews with Gavin and Woodhouse.
