Times, TV channel, how to watch and undercard details Chris Eubank Jr vs Matt Korobov & Charlo vs Hogan
It may be hard to believe but Andy Ruiz vs Anthony Joshua 2 is NOT the only boxing on UK TV tonight. Indeed it is not even the only show with British participation. Chris Eubank Jr vs Matt Korobov features the Brighton man going for the WBA Interim middleweight title he has held previously. The intriguing fight is officially chief support to WBC middleweight champion Jermall Charlo vs Dennis Hogan.

The enigmatic Chris Eubank Jr returns to middleweight following a career-best win at 168lbs vs James DeGale, followed by 10 months’ inactivity. He faces Russian southpaw amateur standout Matt Korobov, who has mostly flattered to deceive as a pro but dropped a contentious decision to WBC ruler Jermall Charlo a year ago.
The latter meanwhile defends his belt - Canelo is the nonsense WBC Franchise champion at the weight - against Aussie-Irishman Dennis Hogan, a tough-as-nails battler who was very unlucky not to be given the verdict in a WBO super-welter challenge to Jamie Munguia in April.
Filipino super-bantam Marlon Tapales, on a winning run of 12, faces Japan’s former IBF ruler Ryosuke Iwasa in an all-southpaw clash.
Virginia middle Immanuwel Aleem, who drew with Korobov in May, should beat Ronald Ellis of Massachusetts.
