Jordan Gill says he was not at his best against Barrington Brown ... but he still won every round.

The Chatteris boxer picked up a 60-54 points win in a six round showdown against Brown in Sheffield on the under card of Kell Brook’s successful world title defence.

The 20 year-old, who took hundreds of fans with him to Sheffield, extended his perfect professional record to 13 wins.

Gill was initially disappointed with his performance, but having watched the fight back he realised he performed a lot better than he thought.

Gill said: “I was a bit frustrated when I was in there. I was struggling to land clean shots.

“When you are in there it’s different to watching. Everybody I spoke to afterwards said it was an amazing performance. When I watched it back it was not as bad as I thought.

“It’s just frustrating because of the way I was in the training camp. I know I can do better.

“I know I can look a million dollars, but the guy I boxed didn’t let me show it. Still, I won every round. It was not a bad performance.”

Gill said he was thrilled that such a large contingent of fans travelled up to Sheffield to watch his bout.

He said: “Thanks to all the supporters from Chatteris for coming up and to my sponsors George Munns and CG Coaches for putting on free coaches. Also, thanks to sponsors Jordan Fitness and Razer.

“That fight was dedicated to my friend and supporter Ron Thacker who passed away when I was on training camp.”

Gill, who is back training in Chatteris this week, hopes to return to action in a 10-round bout in May or June, possibly with a title at stake.

He said: “My next bout will definitely be a 10-rounder. By the end of the season, I’ll hopefully pick up a title.”
