Jnr started the year
with what appeared to be a breakout win against a southpaw former amateur star
and will end the year with a fight against another southpaw former amateur
Back in February Eubank
Jnr outhustled James DeGale, the 2008 Olympic gold medallist, while on Saturday
(December 7) he will look to do something similar to Matt Korobov, a
two-time world amateur champion, at the Barclays Center in Brooklyn.
The DeGale win was
at super-middleweight, yet this fight with Korobov sees Eubank Jnr return to
the middleweight division for his first outing there since 2016. It will also
offer Eubank Jnr the opportunity to win the WBA regular interim title at this
weight, despite the fact the WBA’s regular champion Ryota Murata is due to
defend his belt against Steven Butler on December 23.
