Chatteris teenager Jordan Gill made it seven pro fight wins out of seven on Saturday.

Gill won in a four three-minute round contest at the Magna Centre in Rotherham over Dan Carr, a 25-year-old from Wiltshire.

Gill said after his victory: “I think I might have broken my thumb on my right hand. I need to check it out. It’s probably badly bruised and is twice the size of my other thumb!

“He was a rough, tough fighter but I was too sharp for him.”

His next bout is in Nottingham on October 5, after which Gill is hopeful of a title fight. Tickets are available by phoning 01354 695211.
