In a super welterweight crossroads fight between veteran fan-favorites, Sam Eggington (29-7, 18 KOs) scored a sixth round KO over Ashley Theophane (50-9-1, 19 KOs) on Friday night behind-closed-doors at the Fly By Nite purpose built TV production facility in Redditch, England. Eggington put the pressure on from the get-go, dropping Theophane in round two. A crushing Eggington right hand to the liver in round six sent Theophane to the canvas to end it.
“I knew Theophane would be tricky from the start and hard to it,” said Eggington. “It was hard to get through at first and I just had to keep the pressure on and breaking down and I knew I’d get to him eventually…I’m not shouting anyone out, I’ll fight anyone put in front of me and I can’t wait for a big 2021.”
