Boxing highlights this weekend…

With another busy weekend in the boxing calendar, we look ahead to some of the best fights for fans to check out….


  • Chris Eubank Jnr vs Avni Yildirim – Super-Middleweight – Eubank Jnr takes on Yildirim in this World boxing super series super-middleweight bout. We all know what to expect from Eubank, plenty of fast, flashy combos, and hard-hitting uppercuts. While Yildirim is a bit of an unknown, he does have a decent record of 16-0 (10 ko’s) so he has a bit of pop. And he has some decent wins on his record against Glen Johnson, Jackson Junior, Aaron Pryor Jr, Schiller Hyppolite, and most recently, Marco Antonio Periban. As always, Eubank is worth tuning in for, and it will be good to see him against an undefeated hard-hitting super-middleweight.
  • Sam Eggington vs Mohamed Mimoune – European Welterweight title – The brummie fan-favorite Eggington 21-3 (13 ko’s) defends his European crown against the capable Mimoune 18-2. Eggington has to be one of the most improved boxers of recent years. He’s gone from strength to strength and has built up a big following with his all-action style, similar to Antonio Margarito. He should have enough to grind out a win over Mimoune as he aims for a big fight in the states next year. Dont be surprised if we see Eggington in a world title fight within the next 12 months.
  • Andrew Selby vs Maximino Flores – Flyweight bout – Selby 9-0 (5 ko’s) continues his rise up the ladder towards major titles as he makes a step up in class against the hard-hitting Flores 23-3 (16 ko’s). Selby clearly has the better pedigree and has looked comfortable so far in his pro career. Flores might have his moments early on but im expecting Selby to take control mid-rounds en route to a clear points victory.
