Lewis, Kevin Kelly and James “Buddy” McGirt were a few of the many champions and contenders that Gavin worked for.
Gavin’s teachings remain an influential force for Posey and helped give valuable advice about the sport of boxing.
“It hurt me when he died. He was close to me. I know that it (fight) was one of my best knockouts and I know he would have been proud of me.”
The confidence hasn’t left him and he remains cocky and assured of his abilities. The fights he must take must be against contenders who will raise his boxing profile. Posey knows he must strike while the iron is hot.
“I don’t want fights to pad my record. I got the experience to fight and I’ve trained against the best boxers like (current welterweight champion Zab Judah). They got titles and I know I can have that too,” Posey says.
