Chris Eubank Jr. is Ready To Go To The Next Level

London - Chris Eubank Jr moved his perfect professional record to 10-0 with a battling stoppage win over Tyan Booth.

Son of the legend Eubank Jr passed the biggest test of his career to date, defeating the former EU and English title challenger Booth at Glow, Bluewater on Channel 5 in the UK and Wealth TV in the US.

“Tyan is very experienced, he knew how to play out the time, stay out of range - it’s all a learning process for Christopher,” Eubank Sr said.

“It’s not about putting Christopher in with people he can beat because of his abilities, it’s about him climbing the ladder at a steady pace as every fighter, ever after, did."

In the opening exchanges it was Booth that started the brighter - utilising his height and reach advantage to frustrate Eubank Jr and keep him at range.

Eubank Jr continued to press the action, focussing on firm body shots before throwing an overhand right to try and knock Booth out of his rhythm. 

But Booth, who recently contested for the English title, gave as good as he got in the early rounds - keeping Eubank Jr at range.

Eubank Jr was clearly the aggressor, throwing solid combinations before Booth tied him up on the ropes.

As the fight entered the third, Eubank Jr upped his work rate and began to breakdown the tricky Booth, finding windows inside to land solid right hands to the body.

As the contest continued, Eubank Jr came on stronger, again finding space on the inside to deliver powerful body shots, catching Booth with the overhand right that he had been throwing in the earlier rounds.

Booth continued to box smart and use his range but Eubank Jr was growing in confidence, throwing the right hand over before moving inside to the body.

In the eighth and final round Eubank Jr was on top and another combination of body and head shots opened a cut above Booth’s eye.

As Booth desperately tried to survive the round, Eubank Jr caught him with a powerful right hand to have the Ingle-trained fighter in real trouble.

Eubank Jr moved in and after landing a succession of lefts and rights referee Ian John-Lewis waved off the contest 2 minutes 31 seconds into the eighth round.

“That’s boxing, if you can’t adapt you’re not going to go far in the game and not only did he show that he can do it with the inactivity, but an eighth round stoppage of a very experienced veteran,” Eubank Sr said.

The result gave Eubank Jr, 23, his fifth stoppage win on his 10th professional outing.

On the Hennessy Sports show there were also impressive wins for WBC International super-bantamweight champion Kid Galahad, stopping Isaac Nettey for the first time in his, now, 31-fight career and young heavyweight star Hughie Fury, who demolished Czech fighter Ladislav Kovarik in one round.

Top of the bill James DeGale MBE also impressed with a scintillating defence of his WBC Silver super-middleweight title against Stjepan Bozic.
