Undercard Highlights

Agressive, all-action fighters James Tennyson (26-3, 22KOs) and Gavin Gwynne (12-1, 2KOs) clash for the vacant British lightweight title.

It's the Welshman's second shot at the Lonsdale belt, having lost to Joe Cordina on points in August last year. He has a completely different opponent in Belfast's Tennyson, who has become a beast at 135lbs, knocking out his last four opponents ever since his failed IBF World super-featherweight bid to champion Tevin Farmer (26-4-1) in October 2018.

Quotes

Sam Eggington: "You only have to watch Ted fight to know that he doesn’t give up when it gets hard. I have full faith in myself and if anyone can make him give up, I’ll be that guy. It'll be a good fight while it lasts. The way we both fight, it’s going to gel for a war, but I genuinely think I’ve got enough to get the win. Eddie gave me a list of names for potential opponents and we picked him out because it's a good fight and one we can win. It’s not a fight that worries me like others might have. I’ll make sure I walk out with the win. Any way, shape or form, I'll get the win."

Ted Cheeseman: "I respect Sam as a fighter. He’s a really good fighter, but I think he’s a massive welterweight. I think he’s a fragile light-middleweight. When push comes to shove and I stand there and start bullying him and dominating him in the middle of the ring, he hasn't got a Plan B but I have."

 

Background

Birmingham’s Sam Eggington (28-6, 17KOs) was comprehensively out-boxed by former world champion Liam Smith just over a year ago, which took his loss total up to six, but then five months later the Stourbridge 'Savage' has reeled off four victories, claimed an IBF International super welterweight title, and is now ranked No.5 with the International Boxing Federation, within touching distance of a world title fight with unified champ Jeison Rosario.

In his 35th contest he defends his IBF strap to Bermondsey’s Ted Cheeseman (15-2-1, 9KOs), a former English and British super welterweight champion.

Trained by Tony Sims, the 24-year-old challenger has had a rocky road recently when his rapid rise come to a grinding halt when he was surprisingly outclassed by Spaniard Sergio Garcia (28-0) in their European super-welterweight title fight in February 2019, but he was then held to a draw in his step back down to domestic level by stand-in opponent Kieron Conway (12-1) in a maiden defence of his British belt in June last year. He then suffered a subsequent loss to Scott Fitzgerald in his second defence, which he took rather badly, believing he had done enough to retain his Lonsdale belt. As such, he comes into this contest having not won any of his last three contests, so it's a must-win fight for him.

Sam will want to stand and trade and turn it into a war, but Ted may decide to box clever like he did in his previous performance. Either way, it'll be an intruiging and entertaining affair.

Predictions

Steve Wood, Manager / Promoter, VIP Promotions: "Great 50/50 fight to start the Matchroom Sky Sports shows and one I am really looking forward to. If the fight starts off into a war early, like people are expecting it to, then I would go with Eggington,  but personally think Cheeseman will box on his feet, like he did with Scott Fitzgerald, confuse Sam and win on points, despite coming through a few scary points in the fight."
