Matchroom Boxing is set to return this weekend, August 1. The promotion will be debuting “Matchroom Fight Camp”, set to take place in the backyard of Matchroom’s UK offices. The 15-acre land in Brentwood, Essex will host some of the top fights in boxing today from the 1st to August 22.
One of the first featured fights will be Sam Egginton defending the IBF International Super-Welterweight TItle against Ted Cheeseman. Before that, the pre-fight press conference took place.
Eggington (28-6) is on a four-fight win streak dating back to the middle of 2019. His last fight was a retirement-win against Daniel Urbanski in November. He beat Orlando Fiordigiglio for the title in September of last year. Cheeseman (15-2-1) is 1-2-1 in his last four fights. He lost to Scott Fitzgerald in his last bout in October via unanimous decision following a split decision draw against Kieron Conway.
