Will be a fun fight though I'm sure, channel 5 are clearly building to it.
The fact is that Eubank Jr has looked good against guys that any decent prospect should good against, wow, he stopped Tadus Jonkus...James Degale here we come
I don't see where people get this idea that Degale is going to suddenly teper off and Eubank is gonna improve massively, DeGale will always be one or two levels above
People talk about about this fight like it's Frampton/Quigg but those guys are on a similar level, Jr has just beaten a shot Bradley Pryce, and that is his best win, that doesn't make him DeGales rival
now don't get me wrong, it's good that Eubank Jr is fighting regularly and coming along nicely, but I think he's gonna go his own seperate path to Degale
