Sam Eggington makes his return to the ring on Saturday and award-winning online sports betting portal SBAT.com have teamed up with the Birmingham-based boxer to become his official Fight Night sponsor.
The 24-year-old former British and Commonwealth champion will be making his debut as a light – middleweight on the Amir Khan undercard at Liverpool’s echo arena, having had to cancel a proposed fight in March due to an injury picked up during a sparring session.
SBAT.com, who provide free sports betting tips to a community of over 1 million boxing, football and horse racing fans on a daily basis, have consistently supported Eggington throughout his career and have now decided to become his official sponsor in order to further help him grow as both a fighter and a personality.
‘The Savage’ was left disappointed when losing his welterweight title to Mohamed Mimoune in October but has stated that he has been buoyed by the continued support of SBAT, and is keen to repay that faith with a win against Ed Paredes on Saturday.
Eggington commented on the partnership: “I’m delighted to be working with SBAT again, and would like to thank them for their continued support.
“It’s been a tough road after the Mimoune fight, but now at 154lbs I feel revitalised and can’t wait to get back in the ring. I can’t wait for SatSameurday to show everyone the real me, and repay all the faith shown in me.”
Head of SBAT Darren Colebrook added: “We are delighted to be working with Sam again. The return of Amir Khan to UK shores will be a great show, so to have Sam fighting on this card is fantastic for all parties.
“Sam is one of the great stories of British boxing over the last 5 years, so to be part of his journey is very pleasing for us.”
