Gavin Gwynne TKO8 Emiliano Marsili... Promoter Frank Warren had this to say about last weekend's European lighewight title fight in which Wales' Gavin Gwynne had trouble but ultimately lifted the belt from 47 year-old, and much smaller, Italian Emiliano Marsili: "I was struck by a thought while watching our, mostly, prospects production from York Hall [London] last Friday about the remarkable Emiliano Marsili. When the Italian, anything but a prospect at the ripe old age of 47, turned professional in 2003, a fellow [boxer on the show], Moses Itauma, wasn’t even born. I cannot deny that I felt Marsili was holding sway in the fight against Gavin Gwynne with the European lightweight title on the line, but there was still a fair chunk of proceedings to go when he withdrew with a shoulder injury, so Gavin might well have pulled it around anyway. Congratulations to Gavin, bagging a European title on his Queensberry debut isn’t bad going at all and he has added a further distinction to his place in the Merthyr fighting history books."
