· On The Spot ~ Gavin Tucker
Gavin Tucker is a man without an opponent. Although the 26-year-old featherweight competitor from Ship Cove, Newfoundland is scheduled to fight at “Extreme Cage Combat 17: Rise of Champions” this coming Saturday, May 11, he faces quite the conundrum as he is still awaiting an opponent. Undefeated, with seven wins and six finishes, Tucker is a fighter that many others would avoid facing.
Tucker has been fighting for less than three years, originally training recreationally after completing three diplomas in music (Recording Arts, Music Industry and Performance, Jazz) at St. Francis Xavier University in Antigonish, Nova Scotia. After migrating southwest to Halifax, he has made the steady climb to serious contender in the Eastern Canadian fight scene with Extreme Cage Combat in a very short time, leaving seven battered opponents in his wake. MMASpot.com recently caught up with Tucker to discuss his past, his present, and his future.
