Eubank Jr: No Judges, I Don't Plan on Letting Yildirim Last Twelve

CHRIS EUBANK JR has been told to expect Hell in Stuttgart tonight.

The Brit takes on undefeated Turk Avni Yildirim in the quarter final of the World Boxing Super Series at the Hanns-Martin-Schleyer Halle.

Yildirim has been feeling right at home in the German city, which has a large Turkish population who are expected to turn out in numbers.

But IBO super-middleweight champion Eubank said: “It doesn’t really matter to me where I’m fighting, put me in a phone box with the guy.

“As long as I get that win I don’t care.”

Around 4,000 noisy Yildirim fans will be inside the arena and a huge contingent of them turned up the heat on Eubank at yesterday’s weigh-in.

They even unfurled a ‘Welcome to Hell’ banner – conjuring up images of Manchester United’s infamous trip to face Galatasaray in 1993.

United struggled to cope with the hostile atmosphere and crashed out of the competition on away goals that night.

But Eubank insists it will be the English who get the win this time around, before he looks ahead to facing the winner of next weekend’s clash between George Groves and Jamie Cox.

He added: “If there are thousands of Turks there screaming and booing, so be it. After this fight in Germany the next two will be in England, it will be an experience.”

Eubank also says he will be leaving nothing to chance when it comes to the judges.

English fighters have been on the end of raw decisions here in Germany before, but even the pro-Yildirim crowd will not be able to influence what the visitor has in mind.

Eubank added: “I’m not planning for this fight to go 12 rounds so it’s not in my mindset. I never leave it up to the judges, my goal is always to stop these guys.

“I guess that worry isn’t really there because I don’t think this fight is going to go 12 rounds. If it does, I have trust and faith in this set-up, the World Boxing Super Series.

“The last thing they will want is for one of their first big fights to be overshadowed by a bad decision.”

I think Eubank is a good fighter. Think of what he's done so far with with no power. He always seems to be fighting above his natural weight division too
