David Coldwell open to Jordan Gill facing Ryan Doyle after Aug 4 outing

Ringside 12/07/2018

The quiet summer period that blankets British boxing throughout July and August is set to miss out Jordan Gill.

The Cambridgeshire starlet appears on the undercard of Matchroom’s NXTGEN show in Wales next month, and he has his eyes firmly set on titles immediately after.

Preparing diligently in Dave Coldwell’s thriving Rotherham gym, Gill impresses his coach on a daily basis, and Coldwell insists that the remainder of the year is the time for his charge to make his move.

“I’ve been screaming from the rooftops regarding Jordan for a long time, and I think now people are going to see how good he is,” buzzed Coldwell, who was taking a quiet moment away from his strenuous daily activities.

“Ever since he came to me I was excited and that opinion hasn’t changed since we’ve started working together more frequently.

“He’s been performing well in sparring, and what I like is that he can adapt so well if things aren’t working. He’s definitely on the verge of getting some titles for himself.”

With Coldwell previously anticipating a high-quality showdown with London puncher, Reece Bellotti, in the near future, he had to endure those plans going out the window in June as Ryan Doyle upset “The Bomber” via stoppage in a gruelling battle.

With the Manchester fighter now the custodian of the Commonwealth title, Coldwell has no problem with Gill facing Doyle when the new season gets underway.

“It’s a great fight. Doyle is someone I know very well and he’s a lovely lad who put on some brilliant performances when he used to fight on my shows back when I was promoting in Manchester.

“He looked devastating when he fought Bellotti, but I believe Jordan is a better fighter than Reece, and if a fight can be made then it’s one where I’ll fancy Jordan to do a really impressive job.

“We’ve got a fight on August 4th to overcome first, but if the Doyle fight is a possibility afterwards then Jordan will definitely be interested.”
