Gill extends perfect professional record with impressive win
CHATTERIS star Jordan Gill maintained his perfect professional record with a comprehensive points win over Pavels Senkovs in Hull on Friday.
In his third professional fight, the 18-year-old boxer proved to be far too accomplished for his more experienced Latvian opponent.
He triumphed 40-36 and is still to lose a round in his professional career.
Gill was pleased with his display against his strongest opponent to date.
He said; “Overall it was a good performance, better than last time.

He said: “It has been a massive year. I passed my A Levels, won the Amateur Boxing Championships and have had three professional fights.
“I could not have done much more.”
Gill will next fight at the end of January or beginning of February and he intends next year to be every bit as momentous as 2012.
He said: “I want to have six fights next year, with my opponents getting better each time.
“It’s not really my style and if I’m honest I enjoy boxing so much I never want the fight to end but maybe I might give the fans a late knock out in my next bout.”
