Chris Eubank Jr speaks on why he believes Kell Brook quit in his world welterweight title fight against Errol Spence Jr.
Chris Eubank Jr will fight at the Wembley Arena on July 15th against Arthur Abraham – who will be challenging for Eubank’s IBO super-middleweight title.
The fight has been confirmed to be on pay per view via ITV Box Office.
Eubank Jr at present seems to be boxing currently in between both the middleweight and super-middleweight divisions, depending on the opportunities available at either weight class to him.
Recently after Kell Brook’s loss to US fighter and new IBF welterweight champion Errol Spence Jr, Eubank Jr along with a number of other high profile professional fighters had comments about how they thought Brook gave up in the fight.
Speaking to Kugan Cassius of IFL TV, Chris Eubank Jr speaks about what exactly he meant by his Twitter comments:
“It was a good fight. A close fight. A fight that he had a chance of coming out on top of and with two rounds to go he gave up. I simply ask the question how? How and why do you give up your world title with two rounds to go? You are in your hometown, you’ve got thousands and thousands of people who have come out to support you and you give up because you’re eye is hurting you. Unacceptable in my opinion.”
Following the fight it was confirmed Brook suffered a broken eye socket which he required surgery for afterwards.
Many suspect the next time Brook fights it will not be at welterweight, rather super-welterweight – as he notoriously has an incredibly difficult time making the 147lbs limit.
