Eubank Impresses in Sheffield

Middleweight prospect Chris Eubank Jr looked impressed at the Magna Center in Rotherham on Saturday night, stopping the durable Alexey Ribchev after 1.45 of the third round.


The 30 year-old from Bulgaria, had never previously been stopped in 24 fights and did have his moments of success but he was a late replacement and not in the best of shape. That said Eubank looked impressive and the double right hand left hook that dropped Ribchev looked very impressive.


Ribchev, 15-8-1-(5), did manage to get back to his feet but a follow up attack forced referee Howard Foster to intervene midway through the round. Ribchev was stopped for the first time in his career.
