Chris Eubank Jr. To Challenge Renold Quinlan, Feb 2017 For IBO 168lb Belt

Chris Eubank’s bouts gripped television audiences on ITV two decades ago, and now his son is following in his father’s footsteps as the UK biggest commercial broadcaster announces exclusive live coverage of a world title fight with Renold Quinlan.

The IBO World Super Middleweight Title bout between Chris Eubank Jnr, Britain’s number one middleweight, and Quinlan, holder of the IBO World Super Middleweight Title, will be shown on ITV Box Office, ITV’s new pay per view channel, early in 2017 as ‘The Big Fight Live’ returns. The promoter is Poxon Sports in association with Unity Motion.

Chris Eubank Jnr the former British middleweight champion and former interim world middleweight champion said: “We are the Next Generation and my team and I will now show fight fans the highest standard and quality of world championship boxing entertainment.

“I feel blessed to have this opportunity to work with ITV after they first showcased my father 26 years ago. And I intend to deliver more of what my father did: speed, power, accuracy, showmanship and the will to fight and beat the best of the best. Maybe even with a little bit more swagger!”

Renold Quinlan said: “I’m not scared of anyone, I’ll take on the best when ever and where ever. I don’t want to just be Australia’s greatest boxer; I want to be the world’s best. I’ll travel across the world to fight anyone who puts their hand up to fight me. I’ve been waiting my whole life to prove I’ve got what it takes, this is my time and Eubank Jnr is going to know this.”

The Eubank Jnr v Quinlan contest will be the first time ITV has shown a pay per view event. ITV Box Office will be widely available to viewers on television and online. Full details of The Big Fight Live undercard, how to register to view and the competitive prices for the bout, will be revealed well in advance of the event.

In the run up to the Eubank Jnr fight, ITV4 will show a full evening’s live boxing featuring some of Britain’s best and brightest talent. Details of the headline bout and undercard will be announced in due course.

Niall Sloane, ITV Director of Sport, said: “Live coverage of this world title fight featuring one of Britain’s most exciting young boxers is an event we hope will appeal to sports fans across the country. Many people will recall watching Chris Eubank Jnr’s father in action in some of his most memorable fights on ITV, so it feels fitting for the Eubank name to feature in the first broadcast on our new channel.”

Promoter Richard Poxon of Poxon Sports, said: "It's an exciting time for British boxing. We have many world champions, fantastic prospects and sold out arenas. As a boxing fan, I was lucky to grow up in a golden age for the sport in Britain, which was shaped by its coverage on ITV. Big shows featuring British box office names such as Eubank, Benn and Hamed were regular events and left me with vivid memories. So now to have the opportunity to stage this event with the support of ITV is fantastic."

I'm speechless with the way JR's career is going. It's like he wants to mess it up. No one is going to be buying this crap. And with the worthless IBO trinket alongside it, it just becomes an even bigger…
