Jordan ‘The Thrill’ Gill wasn’t happy even though he made it 13 wins in 13 professional fights last night (March 28)
The Chatteris featherweight outclassed Barrington Brown on his way to a points victory. Gill won all six rounds comfortably to record a 60-54 win, but he was disappointed he didn’t put on a better show for a big Sheffield crowd boosted by many fans from the Fens.
Gill said: “I wasn’t pleased with my performance at all. I don’t want to be too negative as it was another step up the ladder for me, but I probably boxed at 10 per cent of my very best tonight.
“It waa comfortable and I won every round, but I went in with the wrong tactics and didn’t land that many clean shots.
“I can look a million dollars in the ring, but I didn’t tonight. At least I showed I can still boss these kids even though I’m way below my best.
“I am my own biggest critic as that helps me perform better and next time I will definitely put on a wicked show,
“Hopefully I’ll be out again in May or June and maybe I’ll box over 10 rounds as I felt strong at the end of this fight.
“The atmosphere was great though and thanks to all my fans who made the trip up from my home town Chatteris to support me.”
Gill was fighting on the undercard of Kell Brook’s World welterweight title defence. Brook beat Romanian Jo Jo Dan after his opponent failed to leave his corner for the fifth round.
Gill is on course for a Southern SArea title fight.
It was a great day for Chatteris sportsmen as earlier snooker player Joe Perry won £100k by lifting the Players’ Championship in Bangkok.
