Gill reclaimed the IBF International Featherweight title last month with a stylish points win over tough Mexican Cesar Suarez at Wembley Arena to move tantalisingly closer to a long-cherished world title fight.

Coldwell wants Gill to take on unbeaten fellow Brit Isaac Lowe - the WBA International Featherweight title holder - and he believes that would a scrap good enough to take place on an Anthony Joshua/Tyson Fury undercard, should that mouthwatering heavyweight contest ever take place.

Coldwell said: “I was absolutely over the moon with Jordan’s performance against Juarez.

“There were many questions left unanswered after his previous fight with Enrique Tinoco, and Jordan went a long way to showing the improvements he’s made since that fight.

“Juarez was rough and ready, and he tried to make the fight as hard as possible, but the way Jordan responded throughout impressed me so much.

“This is stuff he’s spent so much time on in the gym and there’s no greater pride for a trainer then seeing a fighter do everything you’ve told him to do when taking a win.

“We’d love his next opponent to be Isaac Lowe in a big summer fight and then move onto world level.

“There’s already been some drama between Jordan and Isaac on social media so it’s already underway, but it’s a fight we want and it’s a fight where Jordan can push on.

“It would be great to get this on the Anthony Joshua v Tyson Fury undercard because I’d love Jordan to show a huge audience what he’s capable of on the biggest stage.”

Gill has now won 26 of his 27 professional fights.

He’s keen to fight at the Posh football stadium.
