Sam Eggington Suffers Shock Defeat, Welborn Beats Langford

By Elliot Foster

Sam Eggington suffered a shock defeat in what was classed as a warm up.

The Stourbridge super-welterweight was expected rid of Tanzania's Hassan Mwakinyo inside the distance.

Eggington was then meant to head back to the gym to prepare for a showdown with Brandon Rios.

He would have faced the American on September 22 at Wembley Stadium in London, exclusively live on Sky Sports’ Box Office pay-per-view platform.

The fight would have come just 14 days after ‘Savage’s’ victory at the Arena Birmingham, exclusively live on Sky Sports.

But the 23-year-old visitor shocked the arena and Eggington –– as well as the supporting cast to Anthony Joshua’s world heavyweight title showdown against Alexander Povetkin –– by putting on the pressure in the opener.

Luckily, Eggington managed to see out the opener, but the referee Mark Lyson had seen enough in the second, leading to jubilant scenes and ecstasy for Mwakinyo.

Also on the Khan vs. Vargas undercard, Jason Welborn retained his British middleweight title with a decision victory.

He outpointed Tommy Langford, who was down twice in the contest and had to survive a late onslaught from the champion in the final stanza, in their rematch as the three scoring judges turned in respective tallies of 113-114, 114-113 and 115-115.

The Welborn-Langford match made up for the horrible matchmaking of the earlier bouts, Eggington's weak outing, and Khan's fragile shell of a performance. A gem of a fight in the middle a pile of doo doo.

Mwakinyo scrambled eggington

Honestly I'm less interested in Eggington and Rios than I am in Mwakinyo himself. They never interviewed him and honestly he finished Eggington off so quickly that I never even got a chance to learn his name properly. He looked…
