New Year, new Frankie Gavin perhaps?
Dean Edwards thinks so – and he knows Gavin better than most.
They grew up together on the Small Heath estate in Birmingham and Edwards is training Gavin for his fight with Namibia’s capable Bethuel Ushona in his home city on February 23.
More than the vacant IBO welterweight title is on the line at The Genting Arena.
The show is billed as ‘Now or Never’ and Edwards goes along with that sentiment.
Either the Midlands’ mischief maker produces against Ushona – or he has little future left in boxing.
“Frankie has had a good career in a tough, tough sport,” said the 40 year old,” but has he under achieved? Yes, he has.
