The card is stacked from top to bottom with a mixture of exciting prospects, established contenders and domestic level talent.

Good evening ladies and gents, we are about to get underway for this evening’s UK boxing action in Birmingham.

The first fight of tonight’s TV bill is between Sean Davis and Paul Economides for the vacant WBC international super-bantamweight title.

Solid first round. Tough to split the two. Good work rate by both.

Both fighters having their moments in the early rounds, trading hooks and happy to stand in the pocket at times. Almost landing their shots on each other at the same time.

Nice body shots from Davis in the 4th round. Mixing up shots well to body and head. Solid left hooks to the body.

Davis is now bleeding heavily above the right eye in the 5th.

Another gruelling, scrappy 6th round saw Economides do some good work on the inside with body shots of his own. A tough fight to score. Some close rounds so far.

A very competitive fight overall, possibly the edge going to Davis for me so far.

Davis had a very strong round 9. One round to go. Economides will need to finish big.

Economides comes out swinging in the 10th and final round, laying it all on the line in a bid to get the win. A terrific fight overall.

The scorecards read out 96-94 unanimous decision by all three judges in favour of Sean Davis. Great effort by both men though.

Next up is the talented Kal Yafai.

What a stoppage!

Promoter Eddie Hearn confirms that 27 year old Yafai will challenge for a world title on December 10th on IBF heavyweight champion Anthony Joshua’s undercard.

The fight will be against WBA champion Luis Concepcion from Panama. A two-time and two-weight world champion.

Now onto 10-0 middleweight prospect Anthony Ogogo.

Ogogo targeting the body early on and utilising good straight punches but his opponent Cunningham rocks him to his boots in the 2nd and puts the favourite down with the right hand!

Cunningham’s confidence growing in the fight in round 3.

An amazing upset tonight in the co-main event!

It looks like there may have been an injury to Ogogo’s hand.

Ireland’s middleweight contender (sitting ringside tonight) and fierce rival to Anthony Ogogo might be licking his chops now at the prospect of fighting the Englishman.

Quite the upset.

Now moving onto tonight’s main event between Sam Eggington and Frankie Gavin!

Tale of the tape:

Eggington starting the fight on the front foot putting the pressure on, as Gavin looks to pivot and box off the back foot with sharp counters.

Massive straight right hand from Eggington drops Gavin in the third round! Gavin shows buckets of heart in the same round to come back and stand toe to toe.

Some nice straight left hands landed by Gavin in the fourth. Confidence looks to be building in Gavin.

Eggington piles on the pressure towards the end of the fifth forcing Gavin to stand and fight off the ropes, with Gavin complaining of a low blow from Eggington right before the end of the round.

What an amazing round 6! Gavin gets a standing count but the round overall was simply a war. Right hooks, straight punches, body assaults, inside fighting and more. It had everything!

The referee stepped in during the mid way of the 8th round with Gavin taking too much damage on the ropes. The right to the body from Eggington in particular looked a hurtful shot.

What a genuinely amazing fight though. Bloody hell. Look forward to watching that one back.

And there you have it folks, that concludes tonight’s live fight blog! We hope you enjoyed and will see you back on the site and social media tomorrow.
