WELTERWEIGHT contender Bradley Skeete hopes to fight Sam Eggington for his British title by the end of the year, but must first defend his own WBO European strap on September 26.

He takes on Mark Thompson at Wembley Arena on the undercard of Frank Buglioni’s challenge for Fedor Chudinov’s world super-middleweight title.

Skeete, who unsuccessfully challenged Frankie Gavin last year for the British and Commonwealth titles in his only loss, hopes to fight current champion Eggington this year.
