The details surrounding the Chris Eubank Jr ITV PPV event in February are now clear, we want to get our readers thoughts.
The chris eubank jr ITV pay per view showdown for the IBO middleweight title against 27 year old Australian Renold Quinlan will take place in London’s Olympia and since the fight’s announcement, it’s caused considerable debate among fans, rival promoters and many others connected with the sport of boxing alike.
It’s undeniably good news that ITV are properly back in the sport of boxing in my opinion, a gigantic broadcaster in the UK and the fact they have gone one step further and agreed to a pay per view event is further indication of the sport’s return to prominence given the clout of the television company that boasts 60 million potential viewers via it’s terrestrial platform (according to Eubank Senior – presumably he means the potential amount of TV sets in Britain and Ireland capable of seeing the channel on free view).
But it’s the credibility of the fight being on pay per view is what’s raised questions and eyebrows alike.

Eubank Jr is certainly a talented fighter with a fan-friendly style but some have suggested the fact this is a pay per view is a bit off due to the fact Eubank’s opponent is a relatively unknown quantity.
What do you guys think? Will you buy it on pay per view or buy a ticket to attend?
Feel free to leave comments with your opinion on Facebook on our page at BoxingNewsAndViews.com or on Twitter to me @NiallerDoran with your thoughts.
The fight will take place next month on February 4th.
Should Eubank Jr come through the fight victorious one would hope he and his team will be looking to engage one of the world’s top middleweight fighters then, following a collapse in negotiations in 2016 for a fight with division kingpin Gennady Golovkin.
