Chris Eubank Jr. Believes He Can Surpass His Father

Chris Eubank Jr, the son of the former world champion, believes he can be even better than his father after winning on his professional debut. The 21-year-old middleweight stopped Lithuanian Kirilas Psonko in the fourth round on the undercard of Tyson Fury's Commonwealth title defense last Saturday.

"I've got royal blood coursing through my veins. I can't help myself doing what my father did," he told the Sun. "I want to be able to prove I can become the same or better than him. It's been my dream ever since I was a young teen. There's a lot to live up to but it makes me want to work harder to prove myself."

Eubank Jr was accompanied to the ring for a six-round contest by his father, to Tina Turner's Simply The Best - the same anthem that greeted his dad's ring-walks. The similarities continued after the bell as the younger version, looking fast and stylish, gradually wore down Psonko, who maintained a high defensive guard throughout. During his own career Eubank Sr was unbeaten at middleweight, winning the WBO title with victory over Nigel Benn in 1990.

Eubank Jr. looks like he has a lot of potential. He has some things he has to work on, which is normal and we'll have to see if he can take a good shot but he looks like he has speed, decent power, good movement and a good punch arsenal. If he can take a good shot, he might be one to look out for...

Eubank jr looked good on Saturday but the level of opposition was very poor and you can expect the same for the next two years. He will be tested more in sparring in next two years than he will in his fights. Trying to copy his dad too much also, could be his downfall.

Apparently C5 got 3.5m viewers for the Eubank and Fury fights.
