Birmingham boxer Frankie Gavin 'not fighting for fame'

Birmingham boxer Frankie Gavin says he is set on becoming a world champion and not fighting to become famous ahead of his Commonwealth title fight in Leeds this weekend.

He missed out on the 2008 Beijing Olympics because of problems making the weight, but since turning professional he has had 17 straight wins, 12 of them knockouts.

Gavin said: "I'm not in boxing for profile and fame. I'm in it to be world champion and be the best I can be.

"The more you're known, the more you earn which is good because I have a family to provide for but really, I'd rather win world titles than be famous."
