Vassell would be a great fight and a really tough one IMO. Can't see it happening in all honesty and we will probably see him in with another nohoper

Some alright fights IF they can be made. Vassell, Purdy, M.Hatton. I know some have fights coming up soon but they could be made this year. Rick Godding would be a decent test for his next fight. Don't think he has a fight lined up.

Vassell is a good fight. Big step in the right direction if he comes thru that fight. It would be a shame if that fight didn't happen!

Hatton is made for Gavin, but the Purdy fight would be very interesting.

Any of these would be great. Purdy has the Carson Jones fight lined up in March I think but the other fights shouldn't be too hard to make.

Vassell, Hatton, O'Donnell, Haughian or Purdy next would make a good second defence then push for Euro honours, I wouldnt bother trying to keep the belt outright.

But Gavin is not Ronnie Heffron he is slick and a better boxer. Heffron can be crude and he defiantly was in the Vasell fight and was totally out of his depth.

Don't see why the Heffron fight would give Frank any pause. Totally different styles and a dreadful stoppage to boot. Vassell hardly "smashed" him.

A good test is what Frankie needs now, Vassell would be a good test, the likes of Hatton would be made for him but it's a fight I would also like to see. But ultimately he needs to be pushed and given a tough test, his level of opposition hasnt been inspiring so far and he has had a mixture of good and bad performances so I'd like to see a good measuring test to see how far he can potentially go. I feel he could go all the way, or atleast I did, not totally convinced about his choice of fighting at Welterweight but he has a lot of classy tools hopefully he comes good.

I think he looks like a fringe world-level guy right now. He sometimes lacks intensity.

How about fighting 'the best Welterweight in the country right now, bar none'?

This is a tough decision cause if he wants to win the Lonsdale out right he won't get a fight with the likes of Matthew Hatton, Purdy as they have ambitions at the moment with pushing up the ladder.

Denton Vassell - This is defiantly the fight we all want to see for both British and Commonwealth titles. This would be a quality clash which could be 50/50 plus style wish this would make for a fantastic clash for both fighters.

Ronnie Heffron - I hope this fight aint made but I have a sneaky feeling this will be the fight made for April/May time. Especially with the bite both fighters have had with eachother.

Leonard Bundu - The European championship while keeping his British in April he could go for this belt. Bundu has a good record but Gavin's skill easily beats the Italian.

Ashley Theopane - I think Theopane would be up with this and it would be a good fight for both the fighters if im honest.

Rick Godding - also a name
