Rising middleweight contender Chris Eubank Jr will make his debut under the Matchroom Boxing banner on October 24 as part of the Kell Brook-Diego Chaves undercard, facing Tony Jeter in Sheffield, with a fight against Gary O'Sullivan waiting in December if Eubank wins.
Eubank (19-1, 14 KO) beat Dmitry Chudinov in February, which followed a narrow loss to Billy Joe Saunders last November. He signed with Matchroom just a couple of weeks ago, and they immediately made plans to have him fight on their two biggest scheduled cards with 2015 coming to a close.
Jeter (20-4-1, 14 KO) should be little more than a tune-up for Eubank. At 39, Jeter is 13 years Eubank's senior and despite nonsense top 15 rankings with the WBA, WBC, and WBO, is a club fighter who was shellacked in two rounds by Patrick Nielsen in 2014. Since then, he's won four straight over limited competition.
The bigger news is that with a victory, O'Sullivan (21-1, 14 KO) will be next up for Eubank on the Anthony Joshua-Dillian Whyte card on December 12, or at least that's the current plan. "Spike" O'Sullivan, 31, has his own tune-up fight this Saturday in Lowell, Massachusetts, where he'll face David Toribio (21-15, 14 KO) in a 10-round bout, part of the non-televised PBC on NBCSN undercard.
