[Editors Note]: Chris Eubank Jr.’s fight this weekend against Arthur Abraham won’t actually take place in a specially constructed ring that sits on top of ITV’s studios in London — 23 stories high. But rather that’s where they stood for a well-constructed photo op for the fight, which will be aired live on ITV PPV on Saturday — with it also being available in the U.S. for $25.
“I’m right at the top of my game - so it’s highly appropriate that this amazing ring with the London skyline as a backdrop is where we’re facing off. I’m aiming for the stars - to be vicious and strong in the ring, and to reach the peak o my powers on Saturday night,” said Eubank Jr.
Meanwhile Abraham says that while the view is spectacular, the only view Eubank Jr. will get is of him raising his arms with a win.
“There’s a great view up here - but the only view Chris Eubank will be getting on Saturday is of the referee raising my arms in victory.”
The winner of this fight will be entering the World Boxing Super Series this fall, in a quarterfinals match against Avni Yildirim.
