Chris Eubank Jr ‘ready to end’ DeGale’s career

READY: Chris Eubank Jr.

CHRIS EUBANK JR is in the best shape of his life heading into his huge super-middleweight showdown with foe James DeGale this evening (Feb 23) at The O2.

Eubank Jr. arrived in his flashy new McLaren supercar as the Brighton star opened his gym to the media last week to go through a power-packed session with trainer Nate Vasquez in the ring and with long-time trainer Ronnie Davis closely watching on.

The Brighton star displayed his ripped physique ahead of the 168-pound battle for supremacy and looked sharp and powerful on the hand mitts, while slamming power shots into the body belt with just over a week left until the big fight.

Eubank said: “I can’t wait for the ght now, I’m just counting down the days. I’ll be relentless in the ght and I won’t stop.”

“James will be on form, he respects and fears me so we will see the best James come to this fight. He’s had some hard fights in his career and this one against me could be career endng for him, but I think we’re going to see the best DeGale in a long time. He’s had some hard fights, that’s for sure. It’s one of those things – a fight like this, especially against me, could be career ending.”

A Storm Is Coming is headlined by the long awaited domestic blockbuster showdown between James DeGale and Chris Eubank Jr for the Vacant IBO World Super-Middleweight Championship; Commonwealth Heavyweight Champion Joe Joyce defends his title against challenger and former WBC World Champion Bermane Stiverne; former IBF World Featherweight Champion Lee Selby returns to action and takes on Omar Douglas; and there’s the British Heavyweight Title Eliminator between Andre Sterling and Ricky Summers.
