Chris Eubank Jr is set to make its debut for the US audience in the midsize battle with Matt Korobov this Saturday night in New York.
However, the national pitch of the 30-year-old puncher is overshadowed by the super heavyweight classic match between Anthony Joshua and Andy Ruiz that will take place in Saudi Arabia.
A few hours after AJ’s decisive match, Eubank Jr will step onto the ring to confront a hard-to-play opponent, Korobov.
The main match of the event in the United States was expected to be Jermall Charlo’s WBC middleweight title match against Dennis Hogan, but Eubank’s hotness made Charlo’s match the main thing.
Against the rising British star, Russian-American punchman Matt Korobov longs for a victory to win the mid-term WBA belt temporarily. Meanwhile, if Eubank is the winner, he will have a great opportunity to encounter Charlo.
Eubank Jr told Showtime: “Matt Korobov is a fist from hell. I thought he was able to beat Charlo last year. However, I was here to defeat Matt anyway. I will make a strong affirmation right here in the United States. My goal is Charlo. I believe that I am completely superior to that man. I am sure and fully confident that I can show my skills to him in the next six months. ”
