Chris Eubank Jr. Inks Deal with BoxNation, Returns 2/22

By Terence Dooley 


Chris Eubank Jr will appear on BoxNation TV in a move that will bring the middleweight prospect to Britain's only dedicated subscription boxing channel.


An agreement has been reached between Chris Eubank Promotions, who guide the prospect and other fighters, and BoxNation to spread the Eubank name to a new generation of hard-core British boxing fans.  He is in action this weekend on a Frank Warren-promoted bill at London's York Hall in an eight-threes bout against an as yet unnamed opponent.  The fight could lead to a long-term deal between the parties.

 

Eubank has raced to 12-0 (seven early) in the pro ranks as he bids to emulate the success of his father Chris Eubank, who won the WBO middle and Super middleweight crowns during his impressive, and high profile, 45-5-2 (23) career.

 

Eubank Senior warred with Nigel Benn and Michael Watson, his son has forged a name for himself at middleweight and is on the radar of all of his domestic rivals: Billy Joe Saunders, James DeGale and Adam Etches have talked about handing the fighter his first '0'.  He brings a stardust-laden surname and undefeated record to BoxNation, who will showcase his talent in a succession of fights, with title shots almost a certainty due to his early form and rapid progress.

 

The 24-year-old has remained his family's boxing ties by hooking up with renowned trainer Ronnie Davies, who gave his father words of advice, not to mention the odd slap, when the occasion arose.  With his father also an ever present fixture in the gym and on fight night, the Brighton-born boxer has everything he needs to make it to the top.

 

“Finally I get to jump back into the ring on the 22nd,” said Eubank Jr. “My team has been working hard behind the scenes and I am excited to be fighting live on BoxNation on Saturday night. I'm hungry and I'm going to use this newest fight to showcase the true boxing skills that I possess. My fans are in for a treat and even the haters are going to appreciate the performance I put on this Saturday."

 

Promoter Frank Warren added: “Chris Eubank Jr. is unquestionably an outstanding young talent and I hope that he will now become more active and his fights become synonymous with BoxNation. I’ve heard outstanding reports from his father, trainer Ronnie Davies, as well as the likes of George Groves and Nathan Cleverly about his potential so I’m delighted to give him a platform to showcase his skills at the York Hall this Saturday.

 

“He will be the fifth son of a world champion that I have had the pleasure of working with alongside Ross Minter, Luke Robinson, Steve Collins Jnr, and my most recent signing Kevin Hodkinson. I’ve also promoted Mo Hussein’s son Eddy who is also fighting at the York Hall on Saturday.”
