Pearce won the vacant Title in March when he scored a fifth round TKO over Luke Gallear.
Steven Pearce (Stourbridge) v Sam Eggington (Stourbridge)
BBBofC Midlands Area Welterweight Title (10 x 3 Minute Rounds)
Steven ‘The Fierce’ Pearce suffered a seventh round defeat at the hands of Sam ‘The Savage’ Eggington. Hitting the canvas in round two – Pearce struggled to get in to any rhythm during subsequent rounds. The fourth was particularly challenging for him and he looked like he might not survive the frame but then rallies round in the fifth and looks like he might be starting to pull something back. In the seventh though, Pearce hits the canvas quite heavily and the fight is stopped. He was given oxygen by attending paramedics but stood up for the official decision.
Popular Sam Eggington wins the Midlands Area Welterweight Belt. His record improves to 5 wins (2 by KO) and 1 loss (Prizefighter Tournament)
Pearce drops to 7 wins (2 by KO) and 2 losses (2 by KO) More...

Last night, in Mannheim, Germany, Ukrainian Wladimir Klitschko retained his four Heavyweight titles by scoring a sixth round TKO over Italian Francesco Pianeta of Gelsenkirchen, Germany.
Pianeta found himself on the canvas three times during the contest at the packed out SAP Arena.
Knockdown number one came in round four when the Champion landed a hefty right to the face of Pianeta, who stood up straight away and took the count.
A clubbing left sent him to the canvas again in the fifth. The third and final knockdown was a left, right, left to the head in round six.
Pianeta was on all fours and got up wearily as Referee Ernie Sharif administered the count then waved off the contest with the Italian looking dazed.
Klitschko – victorious once more! His impressive record now stands at 60 wins (51 by knockout) 3 losses (3 by KO).

This Weekend, British Boxers – Martin Murray and Gary Buckland are fighting at the Vélez Sarsfield football stadium in Beunos Aires, Argentina.
St.Helen’s Boxer – Martin Murray, will face Argentinian Sergio Martinez for the WBC Middleweight Title.
Martinez is returning to Argentina to fight for the first time in eleven years and Murray is well aware that the Argentine crowd will not be Brit-friendly (!)
But it won’t be the first time that Murray has fought outside the UK. The unbeaten 30 year-old has just one draw on his record – that was to WBA Title-holder Felix Sturm in Germany in 2011.
The closely fought battle could have gone either way on the Judge’s score cards and Murray did think he’d done enough to secure the win. But despite the draw – he was proud of his performance as were British boxing fans.
Murray’s Promoter - former two-weight World Champion Ricky Hatton, MBE – although immensely respectful of Martinez and his career – says he is confident of victory for Murray.
At today’s weigh-in, Martin Murray looked in great shape as he stepped up to the scales flanked by Ricky Hatton and trainer Oliver Harrison. Smiling and looking relaxed – he tipped the scales at 159.6 lbs. More...
