Fenland fighter stopped by Mexican Enrique Tinoco in Nottingham




Jordan Gill lost his unbeaten record and WBA International title to Enrique Tinoco with a stoppage at the end of round eight.

Chatteris fighter Gill, who had never down in his 23 previous fights, was knocked down three time during the contest.

Even though he got up at the end of the eighth round, his trainer Dave Coldwell instructed the ref that Gill could not continue and pulled him out.

Speaking to Sky Sports after the fight, Gill said: "I've been on the toilet all afternoon. I think I've got food poisoning, I was not going to pull out on the day, I didn't want to quit in the fight.

"He's a good fighter but that was not me in there. I was terrible, I couldn't do anything in there. Every time he touched me, it felt like I was going to explode.

"I will have to come back another day, but tonight is his, congratulations to him."
