Sam Eggington vs. Frankie Gavin in February/March?

By Shaun Brown

The rearranged all-Birmingham clash between Sam Eggington (17-2, 9 KOs) and Frankie Gavin (22-2, 13 KOs) could take place at the end of February or the beginning of March next year.

Boxing Scene was advised earlier that the welterweight bout would likely be staged in Birmingham after originally being pencilled in for earlier this month (October 17). This was postponed after Gavin sustained a foot injury. The rest of the card, however, featuring the likes of Matthew Macklin and Kal Yafai, still went ahead.

“He (Gavin) hasn’t agreed yet but he hasn’t got much choice really,” our source told us.

Eggington, the British, Commonwealth and WBC International silver welterweight belt holder will not return to action this year after four fights and four wins in seven months which has made him one of British boxing’s stand-out performers of 2015.

“Sam was feeling the hard year. He’s knackered. He’s enjoying his rest and recharging the batteries and looking forward to treating his kids (at Christmas).”

Earlier, Eggington had signed a new three-year contract with promoters Matchroom Boxing after a meeting with Barry Hearn who informed the 22-year-old that he wants to take him on a week long training camp to Las Vegas in December.

Gavin’s last outing came on May 30 after an unsuccessful challenge for Kell Brook’s IBF world welterweight title with the challenger being stopped in the fifth round.
