Starting this afternoon at 2:00 pm EDT on BoxNation in the UK, Frankie Gavin and Denton Vassell headline a card from the Olympia in Liverpool, with the British (Gavin) and Commonwealth (Vassell) titles up for grabs.
Gavin (15-0, 11 KO) has rebounded from some earlier career concerns about weight, focus, and out-of-ring troubles to regain his status as one of the UK's better prospects, though perhaps to his long-term benefit, he has done so now with some of the expectations taken off of his shoulders. Vassell (20-0, 10 KO) is a solid fighter theoretically in his prime years at age 28, and a win over Gavin would be a huge boost for his career, obviously.
Also in action will be Paul Butler, Stephen Smith, Liam Smith, Joe Selkirk, and Rhys Roberts. We'll be here with live results and discussion for those of you tuning in this afternoon, kicking off a solid weekend of live boxing coverage.
