8th July 2017 - UD win over Dale Evans

Pride of Penge Bradley Skeete established his name on the British and European scene from 2013 onwards, picking up Southern Area and WBO European belts.

Since then he has established himself as the best Welterweight in the UK, winning the British Title outright in 2017. Now 'Super' Skeete wants to step up to world level.

DOMESTIC DUST-UPS

Skeete v Lynes

In November 2013, Skeete outclassed the experienced Colin Lynes to win the vacant English Welterweight Title, providing him with a springboard for a big 2014 where he picked up wins over Christopher Sebire, Giuseppe Loriga, Steven Pearce and Leandro Mentes Pinto.

Skeete faced the toughest test of his career in November 2014, as he challenged British and European Champion Frankie Gavin. Skeete impressed, but came up short as Gavin took a narrow unanimous decision - Skeete's only blemish to date.

He bounced back just a few months after that defeat with a thumping first round KO win over Anzor Gamgebeli to secure the WBO European belt, which he defended three times in 2015.

BRITISH TITLE VICTORY

To date, Skeete's finest moment came in Birmingham in March 2016 when he out-boxed local favourite Sam Eggington to pick up the British and Commonwealth Titles on a rival show.

Skeete Eggington win

Super Skeete continued his rise with an impressive TKO over Alexandre Lepelley at the Cardiff Ice Arena in July 2016. Victory boosted Skeete's WBO and IBF World rankings.

FIRST DEFENCE

The British Welterweight Champion defended his new crown for the first time in November 2016. He dominated John Thain at the Brentwood Centre in Essex, with his rangey jab causing the Scot all sorts of problems.

 

LONSDALE BELT FOR KEEPS

Skeete was adamant that he wanted to win the British Title outright and marked the second of his title defences with a masterful TKO victory over Shayne Singleton in June 2017. He dropped the Lancashire fighter twice before stopping him in the fifth round in a vicious performance.

Just over five weeks later, Skeete took on Dale Evans at the Copper Box Arena and put in a skillful display to win the Lord Lonsdale belt outright.

His Welsh opponent managed to last the distance but won only two rounds on all three judges' scorecards, with Skeete showing both sides to his game in his last two bouts.

On February 10th, 2018, Skeete returns to London as he eyes Welterweight World Title glory.
