Eggington returns on September 10

The crowd-pleasing Sam Eggington will return to the fray on a Mick Hennessy promotion at the Coventry Skydome Arena on September 10.

Birmingham’s all-action Eggington, the WBC No.15 ranked middleweight, was last seen outscoring former IBF 154lbs champion Carlos Molina in an entertaining encounter in May.

Broadcast live and free in the UK and Ireland on Channel 5, the Hennessy show will also highlight the main stars of the promoter’s stable including cruiserweight contender Isaac Chamberlain, Irish welterweight KO artist Stevie McKenna and former British light-heavyweight champion Shakan Pitters.

Middleweight River Wilson Bent, welter Kaisee Benjamin, 168-pounder Idris Virgo, middle Brett McGinty, heavyweight Tommy Welch and 154-pounder Michael Hennessy Jr. are also in action. The Midlands venue will be open to full capacity.

“This is a real boxing bonanza of a card for the fight fans,” said Hennessy. “After a very tough time that everyone has had, this is a show for the fans where they can come out and enjoy the fights, see the Hennessy Sports stable of champions from Sam, Kaisee, River, the return of Isaac, Shakan on his comeback, and our exciting future of young talents like Stevie, Idris, Brett, Tommy and Michael all showcasing their skills. 

“The breadth of talent across the weight divisions is just incredible and shows the strength of British and Irish boxing as they look to shine on this massive night. There will be real entertaining, fifty-fifty, fights throughout the card to savour so don’t miss this one.”

The full card will be announced shortly.
