My Pick

The 30-year-old Barrett climbs through the ropes with a mark of 30-2 with 16 Ko’s and has boxed 192 rounds since making his pro debut in 2014 following his amateur career. He stands 5-feet-7-inches tall with a 68-inch reach. Barrett’s first defeat came at the hands of Ronnie Clark by 12-round majority decision in 2018 after being dropped in the sixth round in a shot at the vacant IBF European Junior Lightweight Title. His other loss came to Shavkatdzhon Rakhimov in November, 2022 when he was stopped in the ninth round in a shot at the vacant IBF Super Featherweight Belt after dropping Rakhimov in the second round.

Since turning pro, Barrett has managed to capture the vacant English, Commonwealth, European, and IBF Inter-Continental Junior Lightweight Crowns. He has average power as 53.3 per cent of his wins have been by stoppage, but it should be noted that 19 of his 32 opponents entered the ring with losing records and he’s gone five straight fights without recording a stoppage. Barrett has managed to beat some worthy opposition though with victories over Eric Donovan, Bruno Tarimo and former World Champion Kiko Martinez.

The 29-year-old Gill enters the contest with an impressive record of 28-2-1 with 9 Ko’s. He doesn’t appear to have much in the way of power as just 32.1 per cent of his wins have been by stoppage but he sure showed some power against Conlan in his last fight. Gill has boxed 159 rounds since making his pro debut in 2012 following his amateur days and stands 5-feet-7-inches tall with an unlisted reach, meaning he’s the same height as Barrett. Gill’s first defeat came at the hands of Mario Enrique Tinoco when he was stopped after eight rounds in 2019.

He lost his WBA International Featherweight Title in that fight after stopping Emmanuel Dominguez in the third round in his previous outing to win the belt. His second loss came at the hands of former world champion Kiko Martinez when he was halted in the fourth round in October, 2022 in a shot at the European Featherweight Crown. Since turning pro he’s also captured the European and Commonwealth Featherweight Titles and regained the vacant WBA International Featherweight Title in 2021 with a 10-round unanimous decision over Cesar Juarez.

The lone draw on Gill’s record was a three-round technical affair against Alan Castillo in December, 2021. Just 13 of Gill’s 31 opponents have entered the ring with winning records but his power shouldn’t be underrated as he’s also dropped several opponents without stopping them. However, he’s also been decked himself a few times along the way. Gill has also earned wins over Karim Guerfi, Jason Cunningham and Reece Bellotti as a pro.


Neither man is really known for his power and they’ve both been stopped in their pro careers. Gill should be full of confidence after stopping Michael Conlan in his last outing as it was a much-needed win after coming on the heels of his TKO loss to Kiko Martinez. This should be a close British domestic battle and it could go either way. However, I’m going with Gill in this one based on his recent performance against Conlan.

A very close fight with Gill having the slight edge.
