Boxing report / results written by SecondsOut.com. Former amateur world champion Frankie Gavin won a slow, boring and disappointing 12 round decision against former British Light Welterweight champion David Barnes.
In a dull twelve round affair Gavin was always in the lead but the clash between two southpaws failed to catch fire.
Scores were 118-111, 118-111 and 117-112. Gavin himself admitted that it was a poor performance.
Gavin wins the prestigious Lonsdale belt outright but doesn’t appear ready for the likes of Kell Brook or Amir Khan.
