Jordan Gill Next Fight: Defends His European Featherweight Title On October 29 In London
Britain’s Jordan Gill (27-1-1) will defend his European Featherweight championship against Spain’s former two-time world champion Kiko Martinez (43-11-2) on the 29th of October.
The card is expected to be headlined by Irish P4P star Katie Taylor at the Wembley Arena in London; a Matchroom on DAZN UK offering.
Gill famously came from behind on the scorecards against France’s Karim Guerfi in February to produce a knockout of the year contender and win the prestigious belt.
The mandatory challenger for Gill was Italy’s Mauro Forte but Gill has requested a voluntary defence instead. Per sources, Kiko Martinez was promised an opportunity by Matchroom after being unsuccessful in landing the Leigh Wood fight despite being the front runner.
Kiko Martinez upset Kid Galahad to win the IBF championship in November of last year but lost it in the first defence to Josh Warrington. Warrington will defend that belt against mandatory challenger Luis Alberto Lopez likely on the 26th of November in Leeds.
