Chris Eubank Jnr v Tony Jeter: Early KO win is a Eu-banker

Chris Eubank Jnr v Tony Jeter: Early KO win is a Eu-banker

The Brit’s first defence of his interim title looks to be a complete mismatch, so expect a stunning performance from the young prodigy

The phrase ‘it runs in the family’ can often be applied to fighting. Floyd Mayweather Jnr famously followed in the footsteps of father Floyd and Uncle Roger who both previously boxed at the top level.

However, with Floyd’s retirement, there’s a new father-son combination looking to dominate world boxing… step forward the Eubanks.

Whereas Mayweather was undeniably an individual, it would seem that the Eubanks come as a pair with Eubank Snr acting as his son’s promoter, manager and trainer up until recently, when the young prodigy was signed by Eddie Hearn’s Matchroom.

This weekend the British promoter gets a chance to showcase his newest acquisition in what looks to be a very one-sided bout.

The middleweight will be defending his WBA Interim title as the headliner at Sheffield Arena as a result of Kell Brook’s injury.

The 26-year-old laces up against American veteran Tony Jeter, who fails to make the top 100 middleweights in the world according to BoxRec.

On paper it looks to be an easy night’s work for Eubank who has zoomed to a 19-1 record in under four years as a professional.

The Brit’s only defeat came against the very talented Billy Joe Saunders on a split decision, with the bout seemingly arriving too early in the youngster’s career.

However, under his father’s guidance, the supremely confident Eubank bounced back just three months later, beating Dmitry Chudinov by KO to gain his place as interim champion.

The Brighton born fighter enters Saturday’s fight am overwhelming 1/100 favourite, which is justified considering his opponent’s average credentials.

Tony Jeter is 39-years-old and has already suffered three KO losses, most recently in 2014 to Danish fighter Patrick Nielsen. ‘Mo Better’ gets his shot at Eubank having produced four consecutive wins albeit against poor level of opposition.

The American is 16/1 to cause a monumental upset this weekend.

Realistically however, it’ll be a big achievement if the veteran takes this fight to the final bell.

Eubank has a dangerous 70% KO ratio having amassed 14 KOs in his short career. The Englishman’s fighting style is relentless and spiteful which will simply exhaust and break down Jeter.

It’s already been announced that the 26-year-old will fight on the Joshua-Whyte undercard in December and therefore he could choose to apply the pressure early on and make it a quick night’s work.

Eubank to win in rounds 1-3 and stop the contest early on is the call.
