THE LOWDOWN

SAM EGGINGTON

  • After getting knocked out by Liam Smith back in March Eggington has won three in a row and is coming off a TKO over Orlando Fiordigiglio.
  • Eggington is a very experienced fighter who fights tight and compact with good defence and even has a finish over Paulie Malignaggi finishing the veteran with a body shot.
  • Eggington’s last fight against Fiordigiglio in Italy was only the second time he has fought outside the UK and this will be his first fight outside of Europe.

SOULEYMANE CISSOKHO

  • Souleymane Cissokho has fought four times this year and extended his unbeaten record in his last fight against Dmitry Mikhaylenko with a decision.
  • Cissokho is an Olympic bronze medallist and is a tremendous athlete with knockout power earning seven finishes from of his 11 wins.
  • Cissokho has had a mission to be as active as possible since his professional debut in January of 2017, and this will be his fifth fight this year averaging four fights a year.

THE PREDICTION

This is a huge fight for Souleymane Cissokho who is quickly becoming a force. Sam Eggington will use his experience to feel the Frenchman out and find his range which should make for a cagey first few rounds but Cissokho is expected to grow into the fight and leverage his power and athleticism to out-land Eggington to earn a decision.

Winner: Cissokho via Decision
