Some of the boxing world’s reaction to Chris Eubank Jr beating Abraham to retain his IBO title in London, England.
Chris Eubank Jr put on an impressive display at the Wembley Arena to shut down Arthur Abraham via a unanimous points decision and earn himself a place in the World Boxing Super Series.
The IBO super-middleweight champion out worked his German counterpart largely and showed plenty of heart and chin against a man as tough as they come in boxing.
The win improved the Englishman’s professional boxing record to 25-1-19KOs. Here is some of the reaction from around the world of the sweet science to Chris Eubank Jr beating Abraham:
Eubank Jr is on levels with Anthony Joshua with ability but he won’t get the recognition because he doesn’t live on an estate with his mum

Eubank is a very good boxer just needs his dad to fuck off and let him have his own career

I’m not saying I hate Chris Eubank, but if I had a glass of water and he was on fire, I’d glass him. #eubankabraham

Eubank is fighting at 12st but only carries the power of a welterweight..
It’s gonna find him out soon enough

It’s gone 12. What a hard man Abraham is and a breakout performance for Eubank. pic.twitter.com/IcQbTxjjVF

Eubank is a very good fighter, far better than me, but beating the shell of Abraham in that fashion wasn’t impressive at all

Eubank Jr looking good but badly needs a live test to push him all the way through a contest #boxing

I like Eubank Jr., but no shifts in pace or velocity of punching will hinder him at a certain level. It is all very one beat #EubankAbraham

Ref all in favour of Eubank gets away with turning his back & ducking very low and then Abrham gets told off for lowish blow #eubankabraham
