Saunders vs Eubank Jr: Fight preview and prediction.
Chris Eubank Jr will face Dmitry Chudinov on February 28 at the O2 Arena in London on the undercard of Tyson Fury’s clash with Christian Hammer.
Eubank (18-1, 13 KOs) will challenge the interim middleweight title holder as he looks to bounce back from his disappointing split-decision loss to domestic rival Billy Joe Saunders last time out.
Having made the step up in quality and fared well against Saunders, promoter Frank Warren has moved quickly to get him back in the ring with a respectable opponent and they hope that he will be able to use the experience of the loss to his advantage moving forward.
Chudinov (14-0-2, 9 KOs), is 28 years of age and is from Russia, and he defended the interim belt for the second time on August 9 when he knocked out Mehdi Bouadla in the third round. However, he owns the least of the three middleweight belts sanctioned by the WBA, with the main titleholder being Gennady Golovkin and Daniel Jacobs also holding a secondary version.
Nevertheless, it will be a good test for Eubank as he looks to re-establish himself in the division after missing out on a title shot with the loss against Saunders.
The 25-year-old impressed in November amid claims that he was taking the fight too soon after not fighting any notable names prior to Saunders. However, he showed he is capable of competing with the best in the division and he will have high hopes for 2015.
Meanwhile, Fury will headline the night against Hammer as he continues to build towards a title showdown with Wladimir Klitschko next year.
