Chris Eubank Jr appears to have been drafted in by Eddie Hearn at the last-minute following a reported late injury suffered to former world champion Kell Brook.
The main event on the UK pay per view on July 28th at the 02 Arena in London will be headlined by the heavyweight fight between Dillian Whyte and former world champion Joseph Parker.
However in recent days organisers were forced to scramble when chief support Kell Brook suffered a late injury.
Everything has been quiet from an official announcement standpoint in recent days, with fans wondering would the event still be pay per view without Kell Brook on it.
Although not an official announcement, one Twitter user has revealed that a new advert on Sky today now includes Chris Eubank Jr in the promotion, indicating he is now on the card:

Eubank Jr is certainly a name in boxing so this is a very tidy bit of work indeed, to be fair.
Particularly at such late notice.
It will be interesting to see who Eubank goes in against coming off the back of defeat to George Groves at the semi-final of the World Boxing Super Series.
In recent months Eubank Jr has been back out in Las Vegas training and working the pads with Floyd Mayweather senior.
