In Manchester, On the undercard of Anthony Crolla vs Ricky Burns, European welterweight champion Sam Eggington takes on French challenger, Mohamed Mimoune.

Eggington lands a hard right hands to start the fight, maybe doing enough to take the opening round. Mimoune shows a great work rate, great offensive ability, hammering away at the body and head in rounds 2 and 3. Eggington is able to cut the distance in rounds 4-8, and have short periods of dominance as he throws fairly accurate, heavy combinations which physically move Mimoune, but don't affect or discourage him, and in these rounds, Mimoune responds with fast, accurate flurries. Eggington fades badly in the last 4 rounds, having been made work, made to miss somewhat, and beaten to the body painfully, and Mimoune takes over, surely doing enough win the fight by at least a couple of rounds.

Eggington looks dejected as the cards are read, Mimoune looks confident. One judge scores the fight 8-4 for Mimoune, a score which suggests Eggington and Mimoune may have been boxing a neck and neck fight after 8 rounds, which seems very fair, whilst another scores it 7-5, maybe slightly generous for Eggington, but a legitimate score, from a judge who have the benefit of the doubt to the aggressor, the stronger, more powerful fighter, the third judge thinks he would take a bit of a dig at Mohamed Mimoune, and decides to score the fight 8-4, for Eggington, leaving Eggington confused, and Mimoune annoyed, understandably, but nevertheless, the right man gets the decision, and wins the European title belt.

This should not have been a split decision!
Fantastic performance from Mimoune!
I thought the Frenchman boxed rings around Eggington, yes he was on the back foot, but this boxing, it is offense, defence, you don't win a fight by not being the guy on the back foot, you don't win a fight by not getting knocked down, and you don't win a fight by chasing shadows. Eggington can come again, he has already over achieved, but in this fight, he was well beaten, great win for Mohamed Mimoune.
