This Chris Eubank KO in Germany has to be up there as a contender for knockout of the year. An absolute peach of a punch.
The Eubank KO has got the fight world talking tonight after an electric left hook detonated on his previously unbeaten Turkish opponent in Stuttgart.
Eubank Jr defended his IBO super-middleweight title in perhaps the best style of any of his fights in his career to date.
After the fight, fellow UK boxer Amir Khan who was commentating on the boutpraised Eubank’s power and improvements made in recent times.
Perhaps the best angle of the Eubank KO tonight was caught by the Damien O’Brien tonight (hat tip) where the shot can be seen perfectly, in all its utter devastation:
