Chris Eubank Jr is back and takes on Marcus Morrison in his first fight back since an unsatisfying night against Matt Korobov in New York back in December 2019.
Eubank Jr got the win that now, but it was Korobov’s injury that denied him a chance to put on a real show, but he’s back and eager to impress with a new team.
He’ll look to build on his three successive wins, with the legendary Roy Jones Jr in his corner and the Sauerlands now promoting hi.
“The tactics, the thought process, the mind-set that I have now is different. Being with him will add years to my career,” Eubank Jr explained.
“It’s not about going to war every time anymore. It’s about being smart and not getting hit.”
Morrison faces a real step up in quality here compared to his previous opponents, but seven wins of his own since mid-2018 should prove a confidence-booster.
