Ted Cheeseman Defeats Sam Eggington

Ted Cheeseman beats Sam Eggington to win IBF title at Fight Camp

Hearn and his team have produced hours of content via their YouTube channel in the lead-up to the first of four fight nights set for the back garden of Hearn's family home in Brentwood, England.

Despite a brutal final round which had Cheeseman rocking, before a recovery, neither man could find a finish to what had been a well-matched contest, so it went to the judges scorecards with the unanimous decision 116-113, 116-113, 115-114.

This contest picked up in the second round when Cheeseman stunned Eggington with a nice right and was on shaky legs for the last minute on that round but was able to keep battling back to close out the round.

Eggington was able to hang into this contest by trying to get in on the inside of Cheeseman.

Will you be watching Fight Camp this weekend? I'm a victor, I gave my heart to this sport and I felt that I deserved some luck past year, but I never got it. I didn't see the fight that wide as the match was pretty back and forth. "I could cry my eyes out with happiness". This is Cheeseman's first win in two years.

"You look at Sam and you know what you get with him".

"I've been that kid, the one coming off a bad loss and people think it's all done and over", Eggington added.

"I was confident going into that ring".


"Maybe I could have had a small fight beforehand, but everyone has been off, it's not just me".

"I think he'll come out like he did against Scott Fitzgerald, box and move as much as he can until it fails and then go back to fighting". But I gave it my all. "I believe I'll do the job tonight".

Northern Irishman James Tennyson showed he is still a unsafe puncher after a move to lightweight after halting Welshman Gavin Gwynne (12-1, 2 KOs) in the sixth round for the vacant British lightweight title in the show's chief support.

"It means everything", said Tennyson after the fight. "I stuck to the plan and was patient".

Fabio Wardley's fake moustache certainly got Simon Vallily fired up at the Fight Camp press conference. "What an entertainer, what a fighter, non-stop action". The Ipswich boxer first staggered Vallily with a left hook and then pounced on his opponent to unload a barrage of shots to body and head to force the stoppage.

In the light-welterweight contest, Dalton Smith recorded a knock-out win over Nathan Bennett, landing a big right hand during the fifth round. Wardley said: "This is the real test to get rid of doubts about me".

Gill, who had suffered after a shock defeat to Mario Enrique Tinoco during May a year ago, claimed a unanimous decision, with scores of 97-93, 97-93 and 96-95. "I busted my hand mid-rounds, but no excuses, a great fight, and I'm pleased to come away with the win".
