Arthur Abraham vs Chris Eubank Jr for the IBO title on July 15 in London

AA vs Eubank 15.7.2017

It’s official! Arthur Abraham (46-5, 30 KOs) will challenge Chris Eubank Jr (24-1, 19 KOs) for the IBO World Super Middleweight Championship on July 15 at the SSE Arena, Wembley in London, live on ITV Box Office in the UK.

‘King’ Arthur, a former two-weight World ruler, will have the opportunity to claim World honours for a fourth time following reigns at 160 and 168 pounds.

Although fighting for the first time on UK soil, the German veteran is no stranger to British boxers having previously shared the ring with Carl Froch, Paul Smith and Martin Murray in a series of memorable World title fights.

Eubank Jr, the son of the legendary British fighter Chris Eubank, will be making the first defence of the IBO super middleweight strap he claimed with a tenth-round technical knockout victory over Australia’s Renold Quinlan in February.

Speaking at a press conference today in London, Abraham said: ‘’I’m very happy to have the opportunity to fight here in England. The UK boxing fans are among the best in the World, and I look forward to putting on a great show on July 15.

‘’I will train hard with my coach Ulli Wegner. I will make sure I’m in top shape and ready to secure a great victory. I know Chris Eubank Jr is a good fighter, like his father, and I’m expecting a tough fight, but I’m confident I will beat him!’’

‘’Arthur Abraham has my respect,’’ said Eubank Jr. ‘’He has done what he’s done in his career, but now it’s my time. I have been preparing my whole life to fight the best, and now, I have the opportunity to fight one of the top super middleweights in the World, and to really make my mark on the division.

‘’Abraham is a strong, come forward fighter, but he’s one-dimensional. He’s very good in that one dimension, but a one-dimensional fighter cannot beat me. I see a lot of holes in his game and I’m going to exploit those holes ruthlessly.’’

Eubank Jr was joined by his father Chris Eubank, the former WBO middleweight and super middleweight World Champion, who said: ‘’Arthur Abraham is a great warrior and I’m sure the boxing fraternity will say it’s a tough fight, but I don’t think it’s a tough fight. I think he’s in danger like my son’s previous opponents. But talk is cheap and I will step back now and let him do what he does.’’

Abraham and Eubank Jr will come face-to-face again at a press conference tomorrow at the Titanic Hotel in Berlin ahead of their IBO World title clash.

Eubank screwed the option to fight GGG in September


Ben Doughty:

“We have a model with our fighters
The problem was that Chris Eubank wanted operational control of the show. He wanted to select his own ticket prices, which when I saw I nearly fainted. I would have been strung up. He wanted to select his own undercard, select the purses for the undercard. Even security and hotels. I don’t need that hassle in my life – that’s what we do, that’s what we’ve done for 30 years.
They FIGHT and we’ll make them all the money in the world. We do an unbelievable job and they collect it at the end. I’m not going to give a fighter and an ex-fighter operational control of an event that could go horribly, horribly wrong. That’s not the way we work.“
