CHRIS EUBANK JR took a frustrating victory on his New York debut on Saturday (December 7). His opponent Matt Korobov had to withdraw with an injured shoulder in only the second round.

“I was trying to throw the left hand straight, and I just felt the muscle immediately, like I pulled it,” Korobov explained. “It was a lot of pain right away. I couldn’t fight with just one arm, especially being a southpaw.”

The win, however it came, gives Eubank an Interim middleweight title from the WBA.
