Chris Eubank Jr. will fight next week

Chris Eubank Jr. has had his next fight date confirmed and it is very soon.

It was believed that the 32-year-old would fight before the month was out and that news has now been set in stone after it was revealed that he will be in action on October 16.

The British star faces Wanik Awdijan, who has 28 victories with just one defeat, on a packed Sky Sports-aired bill at Utilita Arena in Newcastle.

“It was always the plan to get straight back out,” said Eubank Jr.

“The cancellation was completely unexpected, it’s a rare situation, it was frustrating, but I get it –– some things are out of everybody’s control. Now, I’m looking forward to getting back in the ring and fighting in Newcastle.”


Eubank Jr. has been added to the bill in the North East which is already stacked with talent and topped by ‘Silent Assassin’ Savannah Marshall’s defence of her WBO middleweight world title against Lolita Muzeya.

Heavyweight Hughie Fury is back and takes on Christian Hammer over 12 rounds, while former WBA Inter-Continental super-lightweight champion Lewis Ritson meets Henry Lundy over eight and there is a tasty domestic dust-up in the middleweight division between Bradley Rea, who is undefeated in 10 fights, and London’s Jez Smith.

Georgia O’Connor and Mark Dickinson will make their professional debuts on the bill and local girl April Hunter is joined by Steve Robinson and Michael Webster.
