CHRIS EUBANK JUNIOR hopes it’s a case of ‘like father, like son’ and he can become a world champion too.

He makes his third professional appearance at Belfast’s Odyssey Arena later tonight against Stranraer’s Paul Allison.

And 22-year-old Chris certainly has the kind of confidence his father had during a career that saw him win world titles at middleweight and super-middleweight.

With two pro victories already chalked up, Chris Jr said: “I’m not the finished article, but I am working very hard in the gym and one day I believe I can be world champion.”

Eubank is supporting Tyson Fury’s battle with Martin Rogan for the vacant Irish heavyweight title, with both fights being screened live on Channel 5.

Middleweight Eubank knows Irish fans will be watching him closely after seeing his dad box Ray Close in Belfast.

Eubank Sr also fought Steve Collins twice in Cork for the WBO super- middleweight title, but his son does not mind coming under scrutiny.

He said: “It’s great to be boxing in Belfast because everybody knows they are real hard-core boxing fans. They know a good fighter when they see one.

“I feel I’m improving with every fight and I want to show the Irish fans just how good I am.

“They will be able to see how I box and maybe compare it to the way dad used to. He liked to put on a show and so do I.”
