Declan Taylor catches up with Matchroom Sport promoter Eddie Hearn to discuss the calf injury to Wladimir Klitschko and where it leaves Kell Brook vs. Diego Chaves as a pay-per-view event in the UK.
Eddie Hearn and Matchroom Boxing are delighted to announce Chris Eubank Jr has signed promotional terms with the company.
The Middleweight sensation will return to the ring on the undercard of Kell Brook’s IBF World Welterweight title defense against Diego Chaves at the Sheffield Arena on October 24, live on Sky Sports Box Office.
He will also fight on the ‘Bad Intentions’ bill at The O2 in London on December 12, topped by the Anthony Joshua MBE vs. Dillian Whyte showdown for the British and Commonwealth Heavyweight titles.
Eddie Hearn commented: “I am delighted to welcome Eubank Jr to our team. I hope to have similar success with Eubank Jr as my father did with Chris Eubank.”
Chris Eubank said: “Team Eubank are delighted to be working with Matchroom Boxing, who we believe have the ability to help Chris Jnr realise his true potential. With our new partnership with Matchroom Boxing, we will be in an even stronger position to add value to boxing by capitalising on opportunities through focused collaboration.
“This new association will allow us to play an even bigger role in boxing by giving fans what they love and to build unique opportunities and experiences with a rich mix of new contests.”
