|It will be a family affair when Sebastian Eubank fights on the card to support his older brother Chris Eubank Jr. in his huge super-middleweight showdown against James DeGale on Saturday 23rd February at The O2, promoted by Premier Boxing Champions (PBC) and Poxon Sports, exclusively live in the U.K on ITV Box Office in the U.S on Showtime. |
The long-awaited clash between bitter rivals DeGale and Eubank Jr headlines a colossal night of action that also features the explosive Commonwealth Heavyweight Title showdown between the Champion Joe Joyce and challenger and Former World Champion Bermane Stiverne; the long-awaited return of Former IBF World Featherweight Champion Lee Selby; plus the British Light-Heavyweight Title Eliminator between Andre Sterling and Ricky Summers. Light-heavyweight Seb will enter the ring for his second pro bout, after having comfortably beaten Polish fighter Kamil Kulczyk on his debut last year, on the undercard of Chris Jr’s world title fight against George Groves.
This time out, he will face Richard Harrison in a four-round contest. He’s been been training hard in Dubai in preparation for fight night and boxing is clearly in his DNA as shares the same rippling physique and unmistakable ferocity as his father Chris Eubank Sr. and older brother Chris Jr.
He undoubtedly has the ability to join them at the very top of the sport. Seb, who shares a unique close bond with Chris Jr., said, “I’m really looking forward to being on this great show at The O2. It’s been a year since my last fight, but I have had a great training camp in Dubai and really want to move forward with my boxing career and add to the Eubank legacy.”
