GAVIN Gwynne will resume his bid for major titles next month in the St Joseph’s star’s first fight since failing to take the British and Commonwealth lightweight belts from Joe Cordina.

Tony Borg-trained Gwynne’s unbeaten record went when slipping to a defeat on points against fellow Welshman and former stablemate Cordina at London’s O2 in late August.

The 29-year-old, who had won all 11 of his previous bouts before the Cordina setback, returns to the ring on a Sanigar Events promotion at Pontypool Active Living Centre on November 30.

It will be the first professional boxing show at the venue in nearly two years, when Gwent trio Kody Davies, Kieran Gething and Lance Cooksey claimed comfortable points victories.

This time around, Gwynne is set to be joined by St Joes stablemates Robbie Vernon, Joshua John, Jordan Withers and Lloyd Germain, as well as Risca’s Gavin Rees-trained Jake Tinklin.

While Welsh champion Gwynne goes into his contest looking to bounce back from a defeat, the other five are all bidding to maintain unbeaten records.

The quintet were winners on points at Swansea’s LC2 in September as Withers and John marked their pro debuts with assured performances.

Vernon and Tinklin both moved to 4-0, while Germain backed up his win on debut a few months earlier with another success.

Welsh super-middleweight champion Morgan Jones, who used to be trained by Borg, Jermaine Asare and Geraint Goodridge are also pencilled in for the Pontypool show.

There is one non-Welsh boxer on the card in the shape of unbeaten Pawel August, the Taunton-based Pole who has won all 10 of his fights to date.

The addition of the Sanigar Events show means it’s a busy autumn for Gwent fighters.

Former IBF world featherweight king Lee Selby takes to the 02 ring this Saturday when he goes toe-to-toe with three-weight former world champion Ricky Burns.

Blackwood’s Craig Evans was due to appear on the same London card, but his British lightweight title eliminator with James Tennyson is now in Liverpool on November 23.

That comes just 24 hours after unbeaten St Joseph’s ace Lance Cooksey hunts for a 12th consecutive professional victory at Cardiff’s Vale Sports Arena.

His bout will come two months after he clinched a routine points win over Nicaraguan Edwin Tellez at the same venue.

Cooksey’s November opponent, and the opponents for Gwynne et al, have yet to be named.
