Eubank demolishes opponent in Super Series quarter final

EubankSuper-middleweight Chris Eubank Jr smashed Avni Yildirim to defeat in three rounds in the World Boxing Super Series quarter final at the Hanns-Martin-Schleyer Arena in Stuttgart, Germany on Saturday night.

Eubank 26-1; 20 dropped Yildirim 16-1; 10 to one knee in the first round.

Chris Junior came into a cauldron of menace and silenced the thousands of haters by demolishing their standard bearer with the stupendous knock-out which stakes his claim to a place among the world’s elite super-middleweight boxers.

It took several minutes to revive Avni Yildirim following his collapse under a barrage of uppercuts and finally a decapitating left hook.

The moment he hit the canvass for the second time the Polish referee waved his arms in supplication and summoned medical assistance.

That conclusive punch delivered Eubank’s most emphatic rebuttal yet that he lacks concussive power now that he has moved up to super-middleweight.

It comes as he sets his sights on the WBA world title – a belt more important than his own IBO trifle – which is currently in possession of fellow Englishman George Groves.

With Eubank safely through this quarter final of the new World Super Series tournament, it now behoves Saint George to overcome Jamie Cox at Wembley Arena next Saturday night to set up the semi-final which should be a British blockbuster.

“Win your fight now, George,” said Eubank. “Then we’ll see if I have punching power.”

Mr Yildirim needs no further persuading. His fans had gone to battle in the arena before he came to the ring and a second major disturbance was in the air.

The stomach for that went out of the mob from the first bell. – MailOnline
