This fight is on premier sports in the UK. What ever that is. It's a monthly subscription channel I believe. Shame ITV4 aren't airing it.

Brits are glass jawed bums but Jr is Jamaican so he has a much better mandible. Jr will wipe the floor with Korobov then give Charlo a beating. Hopefully Jr stays in the Mecca of boxing and makes a name…

I was hoping ITV4 may of showed the fight what with Eubank being involved. That ITV/PBC deal seems to have gone a bit quiet.

Korobov is fundamentally sound. He beats Eubank Jr who has yet to show a consistent jab in any of his fights. If Eubank loads up all night he'll lose.
