Chris Eubank Jr wanted to make a bigger impact with his next fight announcement and that’s certainly what he did.
On Wednesday it was announced that Eubank Jr will face former two-weight champion, Arthur Abraham. The German-Armenian has massive amounts experience and is considered to be one of Eubank Jr’s toughest tests.
The British fighter recognises that this is a very good opportunity to silence his critics who claim that he’s had too many easy fights.
“This is a chance to silence the haters. I have had them from the moment I stepped in the ring but that’s part and parcel of the sport. This fight will silence one or two because people like to say I haven’t been tested and you can’t say this against a man like him,” said Eubank Jr in an interview with The Sun.
The 27-year old fighter tells that the negative comments fuel him and give ‘motivation’ to be better.
