We all know who Chris Eubank is…an eccentric character who was (and still is), adored by many. He was a true warrior throughout his days as a professional boxer, who was involved in some of the greatest fights ever witnessed on British soil. Nowadays, we have another Chris Eubank on the scene, who has his own unique personality and fighting traits. In fact, some say that he tries his best to be his Father. Chris Eubank Jr everybody. I can tell you that he is not like his Father and he is his own Man. He wants to show us all in Britain that he means business and has big plans in boxing. He is actually aiming to follow in his Father’s footsteps and that is to one day become a World champion.
Eubank Jr is now 23 years of age. He turned pro in November 2011 and has since had nine pro bouts. He was kept busy during 2012, in which he fought a total of eight times in ten months. Due to unfortunate circumstances though in 2013, Eubank Jr has not fought once, and this has left him feeling both angry and frustrated. His fans have also grown impatient and had bombarded him with several messages via twitter, wanting to find out when he was due back in the ring. After six months of inactivity, he finally returns to action on June 8. Nottingham’s Tyan Booth will be his opponent on the James DeGale-Stjepan Bozic undercard at Glow, in Bluewater, Kent. Eubank Jr is planning to showcase his skills on the night, and in the process let his frustrations out on Booth. He is aiming to make a big statement come fight time.
Eubank Jr’s team will be aiming to keep him busy again with the intention of getting him in line for a shot at a domestic title. The British middleweight scene is thriving at the minute, with the likes of John Ryder and Billy Joe Saunders surely on team Eubank’s radar. The thought of Eubank Jr mixing it with the likes of those two excites many fans, but first he must get past Booth.
Eubank Jr’s opponent is Tyan Booth (11-9-2, 2 KO’s), who is 30 years of age and hails from Nottingham, England. In comparison to Eubank Jr he is older and more experienced. He has fought for domestic titles in the past, including a British Masters middleweight title, a European middleweight title and an English middleweight title. Unfortunately, Booth came up short in each of those contests. He will be aiming to spoil the party on June 8.
Eubank Jr is hungry and I think he will beat Booth. I believe Eubank Jr will land solid shots throughout, beating Booth to the punch and should have the power to trouble him. However, I do not think Booth will be blown away early.
Eubank Jr will be knocking on the door of domestic titles soon I think. We will witness him develop over time I am sure, but, will we witness him become a World beater and a World champion…
