Commonwealth super flyweight title
Paul Butler (champion) weighed in dead on championship weight at 8st 3lbs ahead of his first defence of the Commonwealth strap which he won last time out against Yaqub Kareem in London.
Naja Ali (challenger) weighed in at 8st 2lbs and 6oz.
Both Joe Selkirk and Stephen Smith had check weights due to the absence of their opponents from today’s weigh-in. They’ll both weigh in tomorrow.
Frankie Gavin: “It’s a good fight on paper.
“He’s unbeaten, I’m undefeated so it’ll be a good fight – I just think I’ll have too much for him.”
“The plan,” says Gavin, “is to box and move. Hopefully I can land my own shots and not get hit.
“I’m very good at making people miss, so there’s not point in taking the shots if you don’t have to.”
On predictions, Gavin says he’ll win no matter what happens.
“People say he’s had more experience than me, that’s right; but he’s gone 12 rounds more than me and that shouldn’t be the case considering he’s the big puncher and I’m not the big puncher.”
Finally, Gavin says: “I’m not bothered really [how I win the fight], I’ve trained for a hard twelve rounds and I’m ready for a hard fight.”
