Chris Eubank Jr. vs. Bradley Pryce Set For Belfast

Belfast - CHRIS Eubank jnr will have the hardest test of his career when he battles with former Commonwealth champion Bradley Pryce at Belfast's Odyssey Arena on Saturday night on the undercard of Tyson Fury's WBC World heavyweight title eliminator with American Kevin Johnson.

Promoter Mick Hennessy is delighted that Welshman Pryce has stepped in at short notice after original opponent Matt Hainey pulled out.

Pryce, who had been in training for a fight December 15, has a wealth of experience and in his last fight went the distance in a Commonwealth middleweight title fight with Billy Joe Saunders

Promoter Hennessy said: “Bradley Pryce has shown that he is a true fighting man by taking this fight. He had been in training but he deserves a lot of credit for stepping up at this stage to fight a hot prospect like Chris Eubank jnr.

“Pryce is a former Commonwealth light-middleweight champion, he went the distance with Billy Joe Saunders in his last fight and he's going to give Eubank jnr a real test of his credentials.

“Eubank jnr has done everything that has been asked of him so far and he's a rising star and this is another big stage for him to shine. I think the Belfast public and those watching on Channel 5 are in for a treat.”

Eubank jnr is following in the large footsteps of his famous father, former World champion Chris snr but says that is not an issue for him.

“It brings a pressure because of who my dad is but I have to say that having the name and the expectation around me and knowing that people are watching me gives me a great buzz,” says Eubank jnr.

“I get a real kick out of it and it just motivates me even more because people expect me to perform and it makes me fight harder. I use it to my advantage, it gives me that extra push.”
     
Eubank Jr vs Pryce is live on Channel 5 this Saturday from 9pm.
