Birmingham fighters Frankie Gavin and Sam Eggington will lock horns on the Saturday 17th October at Birmingham’s Barclaycard Arena for the British and Commonwealth Welterweight titles.

 Each man will possess their own personal agenda to pair with the prized bragging rights that a victory would provide.

For Eggington, who is the current holder of the British and Commonwealth Welterweight titles at the tender age of 21, the fight represents a tangible step up in class and he will be looking to turn even more heads with a dominant showing.

 Gavin’s last fight saw him challenge IBF world champion Kell Brook, an occasion which saw him soundly beaten in six painfully one sided rounds.

 Gavin has tasted success on the world amateur stage though, becoming the only Briton to win the World Amateur championship in 2007. It is this pedigree that sets Gavin apart from Eggington’s former foes.

For Gavin, the derby clash is a proverbial visit to the “last chance saloon.” There is little need to spell out the significance of a loss for the fighter whom many believe has unfulfilled the sizeable potential he displayed upon making the transition to the professional ranks in 2009

Eggington is unlikely to be daunted by this assignment, demonstrating a willingness to fight the biggest names on the domestic scene such as Denton Vassell and Dave Ryan in recent times, beating them comprehensively in the process.
