About Chris Eubank Jr
At 5’11”, Eubank Jr has the speed and athleticism to trouble any opponent in the division. With a 72 inch reach and an orthodox stance, the British boxer has added punching power to his armoury in recent years, helping him to stop his last five opponents by the 10th round or earlier. The 28-year-old last lost to compatriot Billy Joe Saunders back in 2014 in a split decision, and is now bidding to become the best super-middleweight in the world.
About Arthur Abraham
Abraham has won five of his last six fights, demonstrating his pedigree at this level, with his last victory coming over Robin Krasniqi. Despite now reaching the end of his career, the 37-year-old has enough left in the tank to cause Eubank Jr problems, with over 400 rounds of boxing to his name throughout his career to date. At just 5’9”, Abraham is still an aggressive fighter, who enjoys nothing better than breaking his opponent down on the inside.
