Jordan Gill feels he is ready to mix it at British level


Updated 11th March 2015

Jordan ‘The Thrill’ Gill feels he can compete for titles as early in his career as Prince Naseem and Ryan Rhodes were in theirs.


The 20-year-old featherweight prospect, who fights on the Kell Brook undercard at Motorpoint Arena, Sheffield, on 28 March, has already won a professional title and is aiming to be in British title contention for his 21st birthday in July.


Above: Watch our full exclusive interview with Jordan.


“This year I think it is more about picking the right opponents in the top 10,” Jordan said.


“Get a few good names under my belt, beat them up and make my way to the top of the pile and get my British title fight.


“I’m still a baby in boxing, but sparring the likes of Kell Brook, Kid Galahad, Leigh Wood and some of the other good lads we’ve got in the gym, I don’t think I’m far behind.


“You look at the likes of Nas (Naseem Hamed) or Ryan Rhodes and they were fighting for titles very young and because I had my pro debut only seven days after my 18th birthday, I think, ‘I can be on that level where I fight for these titles early’.


“It’s all looking positive and we’re going in the right direction.”


Jordan takes on the experienced Barrington Brown over six-three-minute-rounds on the Unbreakable bill at Motorpoint Arena, Sheffield.


But, having experienced Kell’s world title build up in America and already boasting a perfect 12 straight wins as a professional, Jordan is unfazed and excited to show his best.


“It’s going to be an electric atmosphere, there’s going to be 11,000 people there, I’m going to come out to something funky, get everybody up on there feet dancing – it’s going to be a night to remember,” the Chatteris man said.


“I’m always motivated, but to be a part of the whole build up towards the fight, seeing the press come in every day adds momentum to the occasion.


“You just feel like you’re part of something good and it’s going to be good to get in there on the night.


“There’s already a buzz about it in Sheffield.


“I’ve been to California to see Kell Brook vs Shawn Porter, so I’ve been involved with top level fights – it’s all in the bank and it’s all experience.


“To be out there and see it is an experience, if you said to me, ‘next week you’ve got to go out to America and fight this top guy,’ I wouldn’t be fazed at all.


“I just can’t wait, I’m so excited – one thing that I’m promising is a knockout, 100 percent guaranteed, so if you’re coming sit in your chair, look at the ring and don’t blink.”
