Sam Eggington defends his British and Commonwealth Welterweight titles against Bradley Skeete at the Genting Arena in Birmingham on March 5, live on Sky Sports.

Eggington defended the titles for the first time in a thrilling contest against Dale Evans in October, with the young Birmingham talent climbing off the canvas in the second round to see off the tough Welshman on points in Birmingham.

The 22 year old makes the second defence of the British title and third of his Commonwealth belt back in the second city, and faces popular Londoner Skeete as he aims to move into touching distance of outright ownership of the Lord Lonsdale belt.

Skeete has boxed for the belts before and against another Birmingham man having challenged Frankie Gavin for the titles in London in November 2014, and the 27 year old enters the clash in good form on the back of four wins in the capital in 2015 since his loss to Gavin.

Eggington’s defence against Skeete will top a stacked card in Birmingham where Kal and Gamal Yafai face crucial nights in their blossoming careers.

Gamal will challenge Bobby Jenkinson for the Lincoln man’s Commonwealth Super Bantamweight title, British Super Flyweight champion Kal continues his march towards a World title, Birmingham pair Michael Rooney and Marcus Ffrench meet for the Midlands Lightweight title and Cello Renda and Ben Wilkes clash in an eliminator for the English Middleweight title.

Tickets go on sale to Matchroom Fight Pass members at 2pm today (Thursday January 14), priced – £40, £60, £100 and £150 VIP.
