Brett Egan Pro Boxer

Updated: May 3, 2023

 


Twenty-eight-year-old Brett Egan made his pro debut in June of last year beating Paul Cummings on points on the Tommy Owens Promotions show at the H-Suite Edgbaston. The Erdington Welterweight has had six contests winning five of them with his only defeat coming in the Tommy Owens Promotions TOP Boxer Tournament in his last fight being stopped by Taylor Greig. As an amateur the Orthodox fighter had two fights winning one and losing one, he also had an unlicensed career having eight fights and winning all of them. Egan also won three titles in the unlicensed game in Light Middle, Middleweight and super Middleweight.


Egan who now boxes out of Eastside Gym took up the sport in 2016 but only started to take it seriously when he turned pro. He is trained by Marcus, Jon Pegg and Paul and Louie Counihan. My first question to Egan was, what inspired you to take up the noble art? He told me “Getting into trouble when I was younger and my mom took me to a boxing gym, I did love it and my mom passed away 5 years ago now so I owe her a lot I want to make her proud and do it for her”.

I then asked, who is your favourite boxer and why? Egan informed me, “Vasiliy Lomachenko just the way he moves”. I then asked, what is the best fight you have seen? Brett told me “I’d say Sam Eggington against Bilel Jkitou what a fight”.  

My final question to Egan was, what has been your hardest fight? Brett informed me “My hardest fight is the battle that’s going on inside my head, I've been through a lot but I keep going. So, no I don’t think I have had a really hard fight, to be honest, I wouldn’t even say the one I lost I just got caught with a shot and paid the price learnt a lot from it so I wouldn’t change it at all”.

 

Dexter’s Thoughts  

I have been at a few of Brett’s fights and he is a very impressive fighter, I was at the TOP Boxer Tournament in February of this year and after his first fight against Connor Meanwell I had him as one of the favourites to win the whole thing. He then got caught with a good shot by Greig in his second fight of that night in the first round and just could not recover. Like Brett said he would if learned a lot in that fight probably more than he had learnt in his other four. He may have a loss on his record but as it was a three-rounder and his second fight of that night it's not really relevant and he can look beyond that. He is a very talented boxer and I think he has a big career ahead of him, I look forward to be reporting on him in the future.
