The Olympic Games has been a hotbed of success for British boxers over the years with medals coming thick and fast in recent times. However, World Championship gold has so far eluded all but one British boxer. The latest batch of stars from the Team GB production line in Sheffield will be hoping they can match Frankie Gavin’s achievement when they travel to Doha in Qatar for the 18th World Championships, which begin on 5 October. Leading the team will be Joe Cordina, who became European Champion in August in Bulgaria, and the 23-year-old from Cardiff believes he can emulate Gavin in a tricky lightweight division. “It gives me a massive boost going over to Qatar as the European Champion,” Cordina told BM. “But I also know the pressure will be on and I will have a target on my back."
