I don't think being with the dark fraud Booth helped him much, and he's now moved on from him.

Can Baraou outbox Egg? Sure, can he outfight him? The remains to be seen, I give Egg every chance if he can take Baraou out of his rhythm, fascinating fight.
His fight with Carlos Molina was a lot closer than sams with the same opponent. We know its a big ask and a hard fight but we will see on the night.
Thanks for the nice comments makes a change from the lads in the gym lol
All the best to you and Sam, Jon looking forward to it!

hahaahha just re-read this re the no-nonce clarification. I once said this years ago when I applied for a job as a youth worker, told them I love kids then followed it up with "not like a paedo....although it sounds paedoey". I stopped talking then.

only 30, been a pro 11.5 years. I think apart from Dave Allen, Sam is my favourite fighter, and Jon's possibly the nicest man in sport.

Good interview with Eggington in this week's Boxing News. Looks like he's going down the WBA route. Boxing News in the fight preview (called Slugfest Incoming) tips Eggington to win by points.

Team Eggington all day every day, still baffles me how he became a British, Commonwealth and European champion plus wins over Malignaggi and Gavin, fantastic career, hopefully he can pick up a second European title, in saying that if Baraou is a boxer/mover it could be a tough night for Sam
