Korobov Warns Eubank Not To Overlook Him For Charlo Shot

Chris Eubank Jr. and Matt Korobov will be in the ring this Saturday to measure themselves for the Interim Middleweight title of the World Boxing Association (WBA), which is currently vacant. The Showtime televised fight will be at the Barclays Center in Brooklyn, New York.

Both men need a win at this time in their careers which are at a crossroads. It will be a confrontation between two veterans, but only the winner will have the way open to a potential big showdown in the near future.

Eubank Jr. will return to the middleweight class after a long stint in the 168 pound division where he had his ups and downs. He is focused on regaining his status and nothing would be better for him than doing it in a weight class that is more natural to him, should that be the case in this fight.


For his part, Korobov has had a long road to return to having a world title opportunity. In 2014 he was knocked out by Andy Lee and from then on he has had to lift his career little by little. He lost against Jermall Charlo in December of last year but made it difficult for the unbeaten fighter, which showed Korobov’s potential level that we have not yet seen.

“I’m really happy with how my training camp was. I had no injuries and everything was very smooth. Training camp definitely went to plan so that we can get this win on Saturday night," Korobov said.

“I’m excited to be back in Brooklyn one year later after I fought Jermall Charlo at Barclays Center. There’s definitely some de ja vu for me. It’s the same gym and the same time and same people I saw last year. I’m really happy about it and focusing on being able to show my best on Saturday night. 

“The Charlo fight put me on another level as a fighter. They’re all going to have to start looking at me as one of the best in the division. I’m excited to take advantage of my opportunity Saturday and get another big fight. It’s Eubank’s problem if he’s focused on getting the Jermall Charlo fight. I’m just focused on doing my job and doing my best. I’m very confident for this fight."

korobov is a young 36 with great skills. should be a good fight.

the best strategy for Eubank is to go out there and try and win each round,trying to take korobov out with one shot is a fool's game
