Though I need to go back & re-watch some of Denton's earlier fights I remember being impressed by his fitness, he's not a fast starter but seems to grow stronger as the fight goes on.

I think he'll really push Gavin & despite being made to miss a fair bit will be landing the harder shots. I reckon he'll be too strong for Gavin & will take control in the 2nd half of the fight.
I'm not assuming. Frankie hasn't really been uncomfortable in any of his fights. And the Woodhouse fight wasn't close, Gavin was in control - Curtis just made a good go of it and Gavin was knocking the shit out of him back the end.

Vassell looks tougher all round, but I just look at how Frankie put his opponent in his place every time he got ambitious. Against a threat, I think he'll make a statement.
