Chris Eubank, Jr.'s career continues to entertain.
Just days after Matchroom Boxing lost out to Hennessy Sports in a purse bid for a BBBofC title fight between Eubank and champion Nick Blackwell, Eubank, Sr. confirmed that his team have separated from the Eddie Hearn-led promotion.

Barry Hearn also chimed in, spending some time answering questioning fans on his Twitter page.
Neither Eubank has announced a new promoter, which would mark Junior's third in a year.
As WorldBoxingNews pointed out, Eubank is currently Danny Jacobs' mandatory for the WBA middleweight belt, making Al Haymon a reasonable choice should Junior choose not to go back to Hennessy. No matter what happens, though, it's not going to do anything to dispel Senior's reputation for being overbearing. At least Junior's a good sport about it.
