Jordan Gill looks to make it perfect 10 as a pro


Jordan Gill aims to extend his unbeaten record as a professional into double figures against Adrian Fuzesy tonight.

Chatteris’ British Masters light-welterweight champion has nine wins under his belt since joining the paid ranks two years ago and is favourite to make it 10 against his Hungarian opponent at Sheffield’s Ponds Forge Arena.

Sheffield is the adopted home of 19-year-old Gill as he trains at the city’s famous Ingle Gym, which has produced the likes of Prince Naseem Hamed, Herol Graham, Johnny Nelson and Junior Witter.

And he believes he could not ask for better surroundings to practise his art.

Gill said: “I’m doing all the learning in the gym from the guys fighting for major titles soon like Kid Galahad, who has won the British and European title and now fights for the Commonwealth title in his last three fights.

“I’m watching every move and pinpointing what makes them successful and doing it myself.”
