Jordan Gill is in confident mood as he counts down to a shot at his first title as a professional.

The unbeaten Chatteris super-featherweight will be taking on an as yet un-named opponent for the British Masters belt at Peterborough’s Bushfield Leisure Centre on February 1.

And Gill, 19, who has won his first eight bouts, has ensured he will be ready for his chance after sparring with the likes of respective British and International Masters super-bantamweight champions Kid Galahad and Leigh Wood in his build-up to what will be only his second contest over more than four rounds.

He said: “I feel privileged to have this opportunity. I love it, even the running at 6am.

“My mates come and see me box and if I can after a fight, I have a bit of time to spend with them and my family depending on how close my next fight is. If I put in 100 per cent, I can have no regrets. I aim high, but you have to if you want success.”

Gill is also in action at The Cresset in Peterborough on March 8.
