This looks a good matchup for Eggington's British and Commonwealth titles. A come forward basher against a back foot beanpole. Incidentally it's a Hearn-vs-Warren match - Matchroom won the purse bid and surprisingly the other mob didn't pull their man. Progress.
Skeete knows how to use his height/reach (6ft+ welter), has a good jab, is not a big puncher (although not powderpuff either) and his only loss in 23 fights was a close decision to Frankie Gavin.
Eggington went from being a nobody to a Sky TV fighter to now a headliner. Has two losses in 19 fights - both coming in prizefighter when he was a teenager (means nothing). Since then he's been on a roll, picking up the British and Commonwealth last year. Looks like he punches harder than his record suggests and is improving all the time (he's only 22) despite being dumped on his arse last time out against Evans (turned the fight around).
I've seen some respected judges picking Skeete. Think the old adage is always back the boxer over the brawler.
Bookies have it really tight. Skeete is best priced 11/8, Egg 5/6. If Skeete wins I think the most likely outcome will be on PTS which is a 2/1 shot. Egg is 7/4 PTS. The draw is generally 20/1.
Fight to not go the distance is 2/1.
