The story

Born on October 15, 1993 in Birmingham, West Midlands, England, Sam Eggington didn’t plan to become a professional boxer. He got into the sport because his older brother started training, and he had a decent, but unspectacular amateur career, finishing with a 31-9 record. As a young man, he was working as a forklift driver, but he lost his job and had a son to support, so he went to Jon Pegg’s boxing gym and inquired about becoming a journeyman fighter. After showing that he knew what he was doing in a sparring session, Pegg agreed to get him fights.

Eggington made his pro debut on September 14, 2012 and defeated the 2-0-1 Leon Findlay on points after four rounds. At that point, he figured he may be able to do more than just be a journeyman. By the end of the year, he had picked up another two wins on points.

On January 19, 2013, he joined the Prizefighter tournament, but he dropped a unanimous decision against Dale Evans after three rounds. He fought again just over a month later and had his first finish, a second-round KO, albeit against the 0-8 Vaclav Skromach. That was good enough to earn him a shot at the British Midlands Area welterweight title against the 7-1 Steven Pearce, who was perhaps his toughest opponent to that point. Sam Eggington stepped up his performance and scored a TKO in the seventh round to win the belt.

He followed that up with three more victories, and with a record of 8-1, he joined another Prizefighter tournament. This time around, he won his quarterfinals match against Johnny Garton by second-round TKO, but later that night, he dropped a split decision to Johnny Coyle to get bounced from the tournament in the semis.

Once again, Eggington rebounded after a tournament loss, picking up two victories over journeyman opponents. On September 13, 2014, he fought 20-1 Denton Vassell and got the finish against a tough opponent, winning by way of TKO in the eighth round. He ended his next fight even more quickly, stopping Sebastien Allais by TKO in round one. For his efforts, he got to fight for the WBC International Silver welterweight title against the 20-0 Shayne Singleton. He erased Singleton’s undefeated record by scoring a fifth-round TKO.

Sam Eggington picked up belts in his next two fights, first the Commonwealth welterweight title with a seventh-round TKO over Joseph Lamptey, and then the British welterweight title with a technical decision over Glenn Foot after eight rounds. After beating Dale Evans by unanimous decision to avenge his first loss, he dropped a 12-round unanimous decision to Bradley Skeete on March 5, 2016.

Eggington got back to his winning ways, putting together a streak of impressive finishes. He knocked out Daza Usher in the first round, and then won the WBC International welterweight title when he took out Frankie Gavin by TKO on October 22, 2016. On March 4, 2017, he knocked out former world champion Paulie Malignaggi in the eighth round with a powerful combination.
