JORDAN “The Thrill” GILL Record 21-0-0
Jordan Gill was brought up in Chatteris, a town famous for two other world class fighters Eric “Boy” Boon who won the British lightweight title in 1939 His match against Arthur Danaher was the first televised boxing match, broadcast on BBC television and Dave “Boy” Green who fought twice for world titles. Jordan started visiting the Chatteris ABC where his father was coach from the tender age of 4. From this initiation Jordan found a passion for boxing and idolized stars like Prince Naseem Hamed and Roy Jones Jr. He began from that early age working and training with the sole ambition of becoming world champ.
By the age of 11, Gill was legally allowed to compete in amateur boxing contests. As an amateur Jordan was both successful and distinguished other fighters were fearful of facing him locally this often made it difficult to get bouts. Not to be deterred Jordan would travel anywhere to fight. By the end of his amateur career he had competed in 7 National finals and became NACYP British Lightweight Champion in 2010, and Junior ABA National Champion in his last amateur contest on the 12th May 2012.
Jordan turned professional and made his professional debut just six days after his 18th birthday, making him one of the youngest professional boxers in the UK at the time. His quest for world fame is well underway. An ambition we at L & AE Munns and Son are very happy to support. We publicly support Jordan through the sponsorship of one of the main roundabouts at Chatteris and we have joined forces with C&G Coaches of Chatteris to provide a free bus from Chatteris to the majority of his fights.
Jordan and his family are very good friends of ours. We wish them all well on their exciting journey…!!!
As we approach the end of 2018 Jordan has finally got his chance to challenge for a major title. On Saturday 27th October Jordan will be challenging Ruthless Ryan Doyle for the commonwealth featherweight title. Jordan is ranked as Number 9 in the UK. Doyle although having had a couple of loses is ranked at Number 5. The fight is billed as a 50/50 and is tipped to be the fight of the night. We predict that Jordan will be victorious and a stoppage in the 8th round is on the cards..!! Everyone in Chatteris is so excited that the Commonwealth belt will be coming home Saturday..!!
