Greatest Hit #18 Eggington vs Skeete

  • Odds dropping gradually on this one, so getting tip out now as I expect them to drop further by fight night.  Surely the epitome of a 50/50 fight, so to take 2.38 is a no brainer.
  • Skeete came close to beating Frankie Gavin and claims to have learned a lot from that narrow defeat.  He'll look to keep the aggressive Eggington at bay throughout much of the contest by using smart boxing. He's what you could call the 'technician' of the 2 boxers.Eggington is decent, but I simply can't work out why he is the favourite. He was dropped in his last fight by a big right hand from Dale Evans in the 2nd round.
  • Although Evans isn't a big puncher I wouldn't call Eggington chinny by any means.  He just isn't particularly difficult to hit. I expect a decision win for Skeete by a point or 2. 
  • I wouldn't discourage the 2.1 @ Bet365 for the DNB. If the points prop for Skeete is decent that might also be worth consideration.
