Chris Eubank Jr. Ready For Next Pro Step in Rotherham

By Chris Parkinson, courtesy of The Daily Star

CHRIS EUBANK JR has promised never to dress like his dad but admits there may be a resemblance to him in the ring.

Eubank won world titles at both middleweight and super-middleweight in the nineties and was as entertaining out of the ring with his bizarre clothes.

Now his son, 22 is following in his footsteps and has his second professional fight against Doncaster’s Jason Ball at the Magna Centre in Rotherham on Saturday, February 18th, after a classy fourth-round win in November.

Unbeaten Kid Galahad takes on Jason Booth on the same bill with the winner in line for a world title shot.

“My dad will show me things in the gym like foot movement and punches that he would throw,” said Eubank.

“They are all golden nuggets of information and everything he tells me I listen and take in. His style was the jodhpurs, monocle, boots and cane and not mine. That would be embarrassing if I started to dress like that. It’s a great style for him but not for me.”

Men of Steel will be live on Channel 5 on Saturday from 9.55pm. Tickets can be purchased from the Hennessy Sports Box office on 01925 755222 or from www.hennessysports.com
