Chris Eubank vs. Avni Yildirim - CompuBox Punch Stats

by CompuBox

IBO super middleweight world champion Chris Eubank Jr. was effective with his jab (111 thrown in eight minutes) and uppercut, repeatedly catching Avni Yildirim, who covered up most of the fight. Yildirim, nicknamed Mr. Robot, fought like one, throwing just 91 punches to 201 for Eubank.


Chris Eubank Jr produced a clinical display to stop Avni Yildirim inside three rounds of the first fight of the super-middleweight edition of the World Boxing Super Series in Stuttgart.

Eubank Jr, the IBO champion, maintained his momentum from a strong start when the Turk was almost felled by a right upper cut in the opening round, dropping to his knee before taking a standing count.

Yildirim, who weighed in at the 168 pound weight limit and was previously undefeated from 16 professional fights with 10 knockouts, recovered for the second, when he started to find range with his jab.

However, Eubank Jr stepped things up again in round three. Yildirim was left exposed by a flurry of rapid punches from the Briton before being put down by a fierce left hook which prompted the referee to immediately step in after one minute and 58 seconds, with the Turk still sprawled on the canvas, and call a halt to the one-sided contest.

Eubank Jnr, who had fought outside the United Kingdom only once previously, will now take on the winner of next week's fight between Jamie Cox and George Groves.

Despite the superb show from the British boxer, who should now be in line to meet David Benavidez for the WBC super-middleweight title, there had earlier been some crowd trouble at the Hanns-Martin-Schleyer Halle ahead of the main bout.

Just watched the fight. That person he fought was either shook by the big atmosphere or froze under pressure. Either way he was a sitting duck. Eubank did what he had to do and looked good but he was fighting…
