JORDAN “The Thrill” GILL Record 16-0-0
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 tender 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 country today. His quest for world fame is well underway An ambition we at L & AE Munns and Son are very happy to support. We now publicly support Jordan through the sponsorship of one of the main roundabouts at Chatteris so keep a look out for that when you are next passing Jordan and his family are very good friends of ours. We wish them all well on their exciting journey…!!!
During 2017 we expect Jordan to challenging for a major title. Ranked as Number 14 in the UK it can only be a matter of time before he has his day. GO JORDAN…..!!!!
