Chris Eubank Jr. Moving Along, Eyes 5-6 More in 2012

By Nick Parkinson, courtesy of The Daily Star

CHRIS EUBANK JR is relying on pebble power to ensure he follows in his father’s footsteps to the top.

The unbeaten middleweight goes on seven-mile runs along Brighton’s pebble beach and believes it will help him achieve his dream of one day becoming a world champion like his dad was in the nineties.

Eubank, 22, has his third ­professional fight – against an opponent yet to be confirmed in Belfast on Saturday – and is happy with how his career is progressing.

He said: “I suppose Brighton isn’t the typical place where boxers come from. But it has its advantages living here.

There’s a beach here and I do seven miles along those pebbles, which is tough because with every step you are sinking down.

You are really doing double the distance because you are sinking with every step.”

Eubank is looking for two fights in May after Saturday’s bout. And the fighter added: “I’m happy with how it’s going. I’m looking to fight five or six times this year.”

As long as it's 5 or 6 fights against decent opposition and not just complete blow outs, Hennessy really lost out when Froch went to Matchroom. He has Eubank Jr out on May 12th, the Galahad-Wale card. Doesn't have any…

Im not sure Mick will be able to get him in the ring as often as he wants without having to fight on other promoters events
