CHRIS EUBANK JR has revealed his next fight. He will take on former WBO super-middleweight champion Arthur Abraham at Wembley Arena on July 15 in London.
The fight will be broadcast on ITV Box Office, the new pay-per-view platform that screened Eubank’s last fight, a low key outing against Renold Quinlan.
A flamboyant fighter, Eubank Jr came close to fighting Gennady Golovkin last year but did not secure the deal. He has won the British middleweight title but vacated it and ultimately decided to move up to super-middleweight.
Eubank has however been on a winning run since losing to Billy Joe Saunders at middleweight in 2014.
Since losing his world title Gilberto Ramirez last year, Abraham has chalked up two victories and will now venture outside of Germany once again, although his record away from home is patchy. A strong, seasoned operator 37-year-old Abraham represents Eubank’s first world class opponent at super-middleweight. Over the years he has fought the finest fighters in the division, losing to Andre Ward, Carl Froch and Andre Dirrell.
