Today at 3:45 pm ET on Showtime, James DeGale and Chris Eubank Jr top a doubleheader from London, squaring off in a must-win super middleweight main event. The fights will also air on ITV Box Office in the United Kingdom.
DeGale (25-2-1, 15 KO) is a former two-time titleholder who vacated the last world title he had in order to chase bigger money fights, winding up with this big UK showdown against Eubank Jr (27-2, 21 KO)
DeGale, 33, and Eubank, 29, are both at a sort of make-or-break point in their careers, at least as far as getting the biggest fights goes. The winner of this one will have something major in the works, while the loser will be left to figure out what’s next, if anything.
In the co-feature, heavyweight prospect Joe Joyce (7-0, 7 KO) takes a step up in competition against former titleholder Bermane Stiverne (25-3-1, 21 KO) in a fight set for 12 rounds, with the Commonwealth title on the line.
