Default if you were Gavin, what would you do?

What would you do different now that you've lost your first (and most important) fight?

Do you hire a professional trainer?

Do you take yourself out to the states and get quality sparring and training out there for a few months?

Do you jump straight back into a rematch?

Do you move down in weight?

Not going to happen - he's a married man with two young kids.

I don't think Gavin was utclassed and I do think he would have won with a bit to spare failing the KD. He should go for a rematch ASAP.

He wants to see this more as a learning curve than a set back.

Get back in the gym & really look to kick the **** out of his career now.. fully dedicate himself to the sport, live & breathe boxing.

i know what you mean but i really think his skills are wasted especially here in the uk , i stand by my earlier post kids or not if he really wants to get to the top scarifices have to be made , i just think it would bring him on faster and time aint exactly on his side , no need to rush to a world level fight but at the same time cannot afford to take back ward steps

if he takes the rematch and losses where does he go from there and dont say sign for the saurelands [Only registered and activated users can see links. ]

He should sign for the Sauerlands.

Groves-Gavin catchweight would be a big fight.

I don't think that's really fair - boxing is 'only' sport, it's not worth forgoing your kids...

He has to take the risk and got the rematch - I'd fancy him to win to be honest.

i understand what you mean regaurding his kids but seriously he could come back for a couple of months to catch up whilst ticking over over here ,
it is a carrer path frankie as choose and i am sure he will want to do as well and bank as much dollar for his kids as he can , i do not mean forever just 24 months or so for the rough and tuffness of thoses gyms

He'll be hoping Bundu vacates. He will fight a few cans and then fight an easier fighter for the title and try to milk that title for a while, before being starched for a payday. That's his actual plan imo.

He needs to spend some serious time with a psychiatrist- he has some problems and should take some time away from the sport to address them. Unless he does that and gets away from his depression issues I don't think he will progress any further
