19 yo unbeaten welterweight Sam Egginton is hoping to make Prizefighter history in Wolverhampton come Saturday night when the 3-0 fighter tries to take the crown of Prizefighter welterweights III and the £32,000 prize money. Eggington is one of 6 unbeaten prospects in the 8 fighter line up all hoping to keep their unbeaten record and walk away 32 grand the richer.

“The chance to be the youngest ever winner of Prizefighter is definitely an incentive,” Eggington told DAILY SPORT. “On top of the money and where winning Prizefighter can land you, being the youngest winner would be a prize in itself.

“It is a big opportunity but I have only had three fights so even if I did win them all I would still only be a six-fight novice. It would boost my career but it wouldn’t do what it could do for some of the others who could get a bigger title. It couldn’t do that for me, I would still have to do a few more fights.”

Eggington is joined by fellow undefeated fighters Calum Cooper, Steven Pearce, Glenn Foot, Dale Evans and Chad Gaynor, with the final eight completed by Rob Hunt and Mark Thompson, as Kal Yafai tops the bill in Wolverhampton in his first fight of 2013
