A Big Win For the Big Cheese

In the debut to Matchroom Boxing’s Fight Camp series, 🇬🇧Ted “The Big Cheese” Cheeseman took the Unanimous Decision (116-113, 116-113, 115-114) in a hard fought battle with the always game 🇬🇧Sam “The Savage” Eggington.

All rounds were razor close, and the combatants often found themselves in vicious exchanges in the final 30 seconds hoping to edge them out. Eggington’s determination made for a hell of a final round after it appeared he may have been on fumes, but Cheeseman did enough to take the win and the IBF International Super-Welterweight title.  With the win, Ted Cheeseman improves to 16-2-1, 9KO, while Sam Eggington falls to 28-7-0, 17KO.
