BRITISH and Commonwealth welterweight champion Sam Eggington is drawing on inspiration from some well-known names in the fight game as he prepares to face Bradley Skeete on Saturday [March 5].

The 22-year-old will headline in his hometown of Birmingham against a man who unsuccessfully challenged Frankie Gavin for the two titles in 2014.

Eggington, who had a breakout year in 2015, is aware of his adversary’s boxing prowess but intends to make it an uncomfortable night for the challenger.
