Barnes Broke His Hand, Frankie Gavin Broke a Tooth

Although their BoxNation-televised British and Commonwealth welterweight fight failed to catch fire, Birmingham's Frankie Gavin and Manchester's David Barnes picked up an injury apiece at London's Copper Box Arena venue on Saturday night. Gavin, who was defending both belts, suffered a broken tooth and Barnes suffered a hand injury during a decent third round spell in which he landed a left, scored some follow up shots and left a mark under Gavin's left eye. The fight then spluttered through to round 12 and the score cards, which saw Gavin take a deserved 117-112, 118-111 and 118-112 win, from Dave Parris, Phil Edwards and Marcus McDonnell respectively, to retain his titles.
