Chatteris star Gill gets Nottingham date for title defence

Fenland fight star Jordan Gill will face more Mexican opposition when he returns to the ring next month, it has been announced.

The unbeaten Chatteris featherweight will make the first defence of his WBA International title against Enrique Tinoco at Nottingham's Motorpoint Arena on Friday, May 10.

Tinoco, 28, has won 17 of his 26 previous contests, with four draws and five defeats. However, he has not fought for more than a year.

But Gill, who won the belt in highly impressive fashion on home turf in Peterborough last month against Emmanuel Dominguez, is taking nothing for granted.

He said: "This is a dangerous opponent has only been stopped once in his career but I am confident that if all goes to plan I will win and I will be looking to get another stoppage."

"While the fight is not in Peterborough as my last fight was, I hope that people will come and support me as Nottingham is not too far away.

"This is my next step to getting a European title shot or ultimately a world title shot."

"I would like to thank my family, friends and sponsors who have supported me."

Like his last outing, the bout is part of a JDNxtGen bill, which is due to be headlined by Nottingham's Leigh Wood as he defends the Commonwealth title Gill previously held against Ryan Doyle, the man Gill beat to win it last October.
