CHRIS EUBANK Jr stopped Nick Blackwell in the 10th round to win the British middleweight title at Wembley Arena last night (March 26).
Ahead of his bout, he wrote on Twitter: “Tonight I wage war simply 2 achieve a life long ambition 2 become true BRITISH champion #TeamEubank”
The 26-year-old son of former professional boxer Chris Eubank, produced a dominant display and came close to forcing a stoppage on a number of occasions before the referee waved the fight off after seeking advice from the ringside doctor on the swelling to Nick’s left eye.
After the fight, he wrote a personal message to Nick, who was placed in an induced coma: “@nickblackwell02 You put up a great fight tonight. Proved yourself a true warrior, wish you a quick recovery & a speedy return 2 the ring 👊🏽”
