I think Eubank Jr is a much harder puncher than DeGale and no one seems bothered about DeGale's inability to even throw a punch, let alone his power.
He's got a solid jab and when he throws it, a great uppercut. He's only shown you one side of him and even early on he was working to a gameplan. I can't really think of a time where's he landed clean consecutive shots, he's always throwing one punch and moving.
My main concern with Eubank Jr would be his defensive capabilities.
I actually dont mind it at this stage in his career, he has good reflexes and with some fine tuning will be hard to hit i think. His lack of amateur experience is probably showing there, it will take time to learn the tricks of the trade.
Hopefully he can keep developing and go places, if nothing else because i want Channel 5's investment to pay off. Would be amazing if a terrestrial channel fully committed to boxing!
