KIERAN Gething will go for a third straight win in Swansea tomorrow night backed by the biggest travelling support he has had in the professional ranks to date.

Wales’ second city is where the Pontypool super-welterweight beat Rob Brown in May of this year and then William Warburton just 10 weeks later.

Gething, 23, returns to the LC2, the scene of that Warburton points victory, this evening for a first six-rounder against Londoner Jordan Grannum.

Grannum is back in the principality after being outpointed by Tredegar’s Ricky Rowlands in Merthyr Tydfil only last weekend.

The 25-year-old started his pro career with two triumphs but has lost his last nine bouts, although he hasn’t been stopped in any of those defeats.

Welshman Gething is hoping to inflict the first stoppage of Grannum’s tenure in the paid code before setting his sights on a title shot either later this year or in 2018.

“I’m hoping it’s going to be a competitive bout but I do want to look to stop him in the later rounds,” he said. “But if it doesn’t come then it doesn’t come.

“You try and work your opponent out when you get in there and see if you can catch them with any good shots.

“When you’re fighting someone who has never been stopped then it is an extra challenge to try and stop them, it’s definitely on your mind.

“But you never go in thinking you have to stop them because you end up trying too hard.

“First and foremost, I want to win the fight, and look classy while doing it – and I’m going to have the best support I’ve ever had in Swansea.

He added: “I know he (Grannum) was a good amateur who I think won a couple of ABA titles.

“After winning his first two pro fights he went on the road to make money to help him through university, so you can’t knock him for that.”

On the future, Gething added: “I’m hoping to fight on a Sanigar Events show in Newport on December 9.

“I’m also hoping my manager (Jamie Arthur) is able to put on a show close to where I live next year.

“Hopefully I’ll be able to fight for a title on that show, or maybe even some sort of belt in December, providing everything goes well this weekend.”
