I agree.

Can't believe Gavin missed weight!

Gavin looking the classier but eggington has pushed him.

Great win for Eggington.

As good as Gavin is, he's not got the right temperament.

Gavin is a mess, missed the weight and has wasted his pro career (considering his talent).

Ogogo thumped too in the previous fight, pulled out by his corner.

I've a real soft spot for over achievers like eggington and love the way he is humble and knows he needs to improve, and does.

How the mighty fall. Gavin should be ashamed at the level of underachievement.

Gavin showed bags of heart but his conditioning doesnt look good enough and Eggington is not a fighter you want to take on if he are lacking in the engine room. Hes like the terminator.

To be fair, it sounds like Ogogo took an eye injury early and looked out of sorts from the beginning.

Great fight. First time I've ever seen Gavin actually look good... But he just couldn't take the body shots

Gavin looked fleshy. Not in condition.

Didn't mean in good shape, meant look good in terms of his boxing... And actually letting his hands go. He's bored the arris off me every other time i've watched him.

Hopefully a rematch at some point (not on ppv). Surely there will be a bit of money in that for both of them.

The British domestic scene is brilliant for throwing up these kind of fights. Proper well matched fights where both fighters can let loose. Its a shame there are so many phoney world titles around now that can steer fighters away from each other as thriving domestic divisions can throw up some really great fights. I think if Quigg and Frampton had met a few years before for the domestic titles the fight could have been a classic.

There's a lot of talent around at the moment and a lot of evenly matched fights.

There's a few weights they could have a decent round robin tournament and make the lads some money.

Sadly, the only channel that could make it happen is sky. If one of the terrestrial channels could get the money together they could make a lot of boxers household names and rich.

Good a fight as it was, it's hard to see a rematch turning out differently... Unless Gavin reverts to boring mode... In which case it wouldn't be a great fight.

Agree on the domestic scene, plenty of good little fights about.

Gavin is a wasted talent. Sport sees so many.

Those that are so talented they don't have to try at the lower levels, and it becomes a habit. By the time they realise they have to work at it at the highest level of to late.

Unless Gavin has a serious change of heart and starts to take the job seriously he'll always be a what may have been. History is not on his side.

Great win for Eggington and he seems a humble and deserving winner. I like there fact he never claims to be anything other than a work in progress and that he does appear to progress. Not sure how much further but I'm pleased for there lad that it looks like he'll make some money. Never in a dull fight, looks like he could be in the title mix for a while (most likely euro but who knows?), Interviews well and seems a nice bloke.

Good fight.

Here's a link to it in case someone wants to see it again, or is reading the thread but hasn't seen it yet.

I don't understand the standing 8 count in the 6th. If someone's on their feet but can't defend themselves then don't you stop the fight? Who did it help more? Eggerton got a 10-8 point round but Gavin got a break. I'm not complaining though.

Think the ref claimed the ropes were holding him up, preventing a knock down, so he can give a count. I'm with you though, should have been a stoppage, and it bought Gavin a break... And the viewers a couple of extra rounds.

That was a great fight when on paper it didn't look too stellar

Gavin has massively under achieved

Didn't like the way Gavin tried to survive he just slumped in a corner

Think he was lucky with that standing 8

Eggington is very good at what he does. Someone labelled him the British Margarito on commentary and there's something in that. Really enjoyed watching him hunt Gavin down.

Don’t really know what to make of Ogogo.

Looked really good but over 4 years since he turned pro and he was the undercard fight on a Frankie Gavin v Sam Eggington card. Luke Campbell and Joshua have both headlined cards and made a name for themselves since turning pro. Ogogo has a long comeback ahead of him because the fella he lost to at the weekend was a journeyman in the grand scheme of things.

Ogogo has suffered a lot of injuries and one, I think, was pretty serious, resulting in a year out.

But he looked out of sorts at the weekend.

You could hear his corner asking him if he was saying double etc. It looks like he damaged his eye early on the fight.

I really like Eggington. He's got a great attitude and is improving all the time. Could wind up being a real over achiever and get a world shot, if he's lucky. Certainly deserves to make a good living. Entertaining, always gives it his all and good interview.
