Eubank fight off after foe fails medical

The British Boxing Board of Control (BBBofC) having raised concerns over Anatoli Muratov’s pre-fight medicals, he is now unable to fight in tonight’s bout with Chris Eubank Jr. at the SSE Arena, Wembley. With the remaining time frame allowing no possibility of finding a replacement opponent of suitable quality, Eubank will not be appearing on tonight’s card.

The European welterweight championship fight between David Avanesyan and Liam Taylor has been elevated to the top of the card.

Eubank posted the following on social media: “The fight is off. My opponent failed a medical exam. I’ll now box later this month. Apologies to everyone that bought tickets. Nobody is more disappointed than me. Life continues to throw these obstacles at me, but I’m a man of faith. In the end, everything will work out how it’s supposed to.

  • Not sure what Eubank is doing wanting to fight Muratov in the first place, he’s ranked #155 in the world by Boxrec.

    Guess thats the level of opposition he needs to fight to look good.

    Eubank is nothing more than a domestic level fighter, with delusions of grandeur

    • i agree with you, European at best but the circus around him and bjs rematch would be fun

    • Muratov was actually a replacement himself. Originally Eubank was going to fight Sven Elbir, but he got covid.

  • Eubank should just retire. His fights are meaningless and against the worst opposition.

  • His dad should step in as a replacement! I bet his old man would still wup his ass!

  • Farcical! Everything should be in place for this. Stop fighting under your fathers name. Step up son, not down

  • LOL!!! Man, just about everyone here handed Eubanks his own a$$ tonight. Well deserved also, because he has not and might not make any type of splash in the sport. I don’t think he has that killer instinct.

    This is usually the case in boxing when you’re the son of a great boxer. That struggle to move up in the tax brackets isn’t there.

  • To be fair he recently lost his twin brother. Circumstances with opponents fell apart in and out of the ring and were no fault of his own. Yes, his inactivity and weak challenges are the bane of his career but its no different than the majority of most top prospects and champions that are following the new business/ resume model that’s killing boxing.

    • Well said. Im not a big fan of Eubank Jr. But hes not a bad fighter. He seems to look great against domestic competition but comes up short in his biggest fights.
