Titles: Eggington's IBO World super-welterweight title is on the line
Preview: Eggington first walked into the Eastside Gym in Birmingham to become a journeyman until trainer/manager Jon Pegg told him, "No, you're too good for that!" He won the Midlands Area title in just his sixth fight, and now, 10 years on from his pro debut, he has completed the set – British, Commonwealth, European, and World titles!
He won the IBO belt in his last fight against Poland's No.1 Przemyslaw Zysk, who was undefeated in 18 bouts before running into the Brummie last June. Sam hit him with everything he's got but the 'Superman' was still standing right up the final bell. 'The Savage' won all but one round on two of the judges' cards and became a World champion for the first time in his 10-year career, which was thoroughly well deserved. He is a warrior who has given everything to the sport, thrilled fans so many exciting battles, and deserves every ounce of success he gets.
Based in Australia, Ireland's 'Hurricane' Hogan has lost four times in his career, three of those were in world title fights. He is a very skilful boxer, owing to his extensive amateur career, and it's his fluid movement that allows him to take hard-hitting KO artists such as Jaime Munguia the full distance in fights, so Sam has a real fight on his hands here.
Predictions: Hogan is seasoned fighter with an extensive amateur pedigree behind him, you can still see it in his style. He is very light and bouncy on his toes, sharp and quick, which is due to having over 150 amateur bouts and winning multiple Irish national titles.
Originally from Kildare, I think Hogan knows his best chance of winning is on points. I expect his game plan will be to box at range and rack up the rounds all the way to a 12-round points decision.
Sam's style is relentless aggression, and he can bang a bit too! If he hits Hogan with what he hit Przemyslaw Zysk with in his last fight, then there's sure to be an early ending.
I believe Dennis will get off to a good start, especially with the home crowd behind him, but I think the champion will begin to catch up with his fleet-footed foe in the mid-rounds to force a stoppage.
