Middleweight Chris Eubank Jr. (29-2, 22 KOs) claimed the WBA interim middleweight title when Matt Korobov (28-3-1, 14 KOs) dislocated his left shoulder in round two on Saturday night at Barclays Center in Brooklyn, New York. The bout ended suddenly when Korobov threw a straight left and his shoulder popped out. He tried to keep going but the arm was useless and he had to quit. Time :34.
“He just turned around and stopped,” Eubank said after the fight. “I was going to go jump on him. I guess something happened with his shoulder. There’s nothing to take from the fight. I threw like three or four punches. I was just warming up.”
