Anthony Fowler Eyes Ted Cheeseman, Sam Eggington Fights

Matchroom Fight Camp, Brentwood - Anthony Fowler looked back to his destructive best as he dominated the tough and game Adam Harper, dropping him in round four before sealing the win with a stoppage in the seventh.

'The Machine' had too much fire power for Harper.

"I should have been more composed," said Fowler. "I got greedy. I know Shane McGuigan can take me all the away. I am improving. I boxed alright. I started off and I felt good in my shape. I was outclassing him early on. I got a bit greedy and thought 'he's got nothing to come back with anything hurtful'. He's not the biggest puncher. He was quite hittable. I got greedy and I was looking for those big shots. I need more rounds under the lights. The likes of Eggington and Cheeseman are great fights for me. I need to improve to beat them lads.

"I thought the low blows were a bit harsh. They were hitting his waist band. We knew he'd never been stopped. He'd been to Australia, boxed a world ranked middleweight in Michael Zerafa and went the distance with him. Zerafa couldn't stop him, I did. I knew I would. As soon as I caught him clean I hurt him. I like the kid. He's got a lot of heart and a lot of balls. A good chin. Big respect to him and I hope he carries on in the sport."

Fowler will now look towards an explosive Super-Welterweight showdown with Bermondsey's Ted Cheeseman or a rematch with Preston's Scott Fitzgerald.

"He was sharp and disciplined but got greedy," said Fowler's trainer Shane McGuigan. "Some of these tough guys can take shots all day and are accustomed to the power. I want to push him onto Ted Cheeseman or even European level."

"Eggington, Fitzgerald, Cheeseman," said promoter Eddie Hearn. "It's time for Fowler to leap in with those guys. Sergio Garcia for the European Title?"

Fowler is just skin covering ego. It's sometimes an effort to ignore a fighter's personality and appreciate his skills, but in this case it's an impossible task.

[QUOTE=Mammoth;20696226]Think Metcalf beats these guys?[/QUOTE] Possibly, I’d pick him to beat Cheeseman and Fowler, a motivated Fitzgerald is a tough fight though.

[QUOTE=RJJ-94-02=GOAT;20696054]Same here, said the exact same thing to a guy in another thread recently. Cheeseman should be named do as the mandatory. Let Fowler fight Eggington in an eliminator. Would like to see James Metcalf get in that mix too.[/QUOTE]…
