Chris Eubank’s son, Chris Jnr, will have his last amateur fight on Saturday night before following his father and former world champion, Chris ‘Simply the Best’ Eubank into the professional ranks.
Eubank Jnr. will sign a professional contract with his dad’s former promoter Barry Hearn of Matchroom Sport, who will hope he can get the son into the domestic title mix and eventually emulate the achievements of his famous dad.
“We want to get Chris as much experience as soon as possible. And he’ll be fighting often once he officially makes us his promoter.” added Hearn.
