Chris Eubank Jr Wants To Fight On Anthony Joshua Dec 10th Show


Middleweight contender Chris Eubank Jr wants to appear on the pay per view card before the year is out.

Eubank Jr has had an up and down year this year. For many reasons. In and out of the ring.

He had the tragic night in the ring with boxer Nick Backwell who suffered a bleed on the brain following a fight with him.

Blackwell thankfully recovered fully but has since retired from boxing.

Only for the fight to fall through at the final hurdle due to negotiation problems with his manager and father Chris Eubank senior and promoter Eddie Hearn.

After that it looked like Eubank Jr would finally have a fight against the UK’s Tommy Langford. But yet again it fell through.

This time due to an injury to his elbow.

He has now called out promoter Eddie Hearn on Twitter to get him on the lucrative December 10th card on Sky Box Office that will be headlined by IBF heavyweight champion Anthony Joshua:
