Korobov: When I Beat Eubank, It Will Force Charlo To Give Rematch

Matt Korobov is vowing to upset the odds when he faces popular British boxer Chris Eubank Jr. - who is dropping back down to the middleweight division.

They will battle for the interim-WBA middleweight title, on December 7th from the Barclays Center in Brooklyn, New York.

The fight will be featured as the Showtime televised co-feature to the clash between WBC middleweight champion Jermall Charlo and highly-ranked contender Dennis Hogan.

Korobov is fight at Barclays nearly one year after losing a close decision to Charlo as a late replacement opponent last December in Brooklyn.

After fighting to a controversial draw against Immanuwel Aleem in May, Korobov will look to make a statement against Eubank to earn another shot at a world title.
 
"Yes, it is very exciting to be back at Barclays Center, only this time I will leave with the belt. I thought I deserved an immediate rematch against Charlo because many people believed I won. I think when I defeat Eubank Jr. and win this belt, it will force Charlo to give me a rematch. We shall see. I only focus on one fight at a time and right now I am only focused on Chris Eubank Jr," Korobov said.

"I do not focus on the past. I focus on the future because I can only control the future. I will be my best and my best will be good enough against Chris Eubank Jr. We're doing everything possible in camp to make sure I'm ready. Eubank is a very good fighter, one of the best. I believe I am a more disciplined fighter. I think my technique is better, but he does some things very well. Let's see on December 7. I don't want to give away the weaknesses I see, but the style difference will make a very entertaining fight for the fans.

"I think my skills are better.  I do not think weight will be an issue. He is professional and I am professional. If anything, perhaps it is a little more difficult for him to make 160 after years at 168. I will fight anyone between 160 and 168 pounds, so I don't see any problem with weight for me, perhaps more for him. We will find out December 7."

[QUOTE=Christhenatural;20198618]Korobov is facing a better fighter than Jermall Charlo in CEJ. Also, Eubank has a style that is all wrong for the Russian advanced amateur. I see the Brit stopping the Russian in this one.[/QUOTE] You can't say he's better…

[QUOTE=Ca$ual Fan;20198389]Korobov is not getting another shot now that Charlo knows that he’s a real deal and a threat. And they said nobody wants to fight Charlo?[/QUOTE] You found ONE person, HOORAY! And he STILL LOST :lol1: [url]https://therantommenace.files.wordpress.com/2012/05/cat-saying-hooray_thumb1.jpg[/url]

[QUOTE=deathofaclown;20198147]No way he’s getting that rematch. Charlo is taking that gift W and running with it. Korobov isn’t a draw and nobody cares about him, so they will see no point in that risk. Sad but true. Korobov got shafted…
