I've seen a few of his fights and although respect should always be given to those that step in the ring, I wasn't that impressed. He doesn't seem to have much power and often loses concentration during his fights. His defense is pretty leaky too. Hope he proves me wrong though.

I have seen his last few fights.

He needs work.

His defense is not the best, but he does have pretty good hand speed.

I would say that hes got a long way to go, but with the right training (which he will get) he could grow into a lower grade world class fighter.

I love that he clearly loves a tear up too. So he is a fan friendly fighter IMO

In his last fight on c5 - lee haskins? - he looked so hittable. He seems to be durable at this level but definitely needs to work on his defence...
To answer the question: no reason why he can't at least get Brit, CW and Euro straps, a genuine world title may be a step too far...

I dont know if i stand alone in saying this but if eubanks dad really wanted the best for his son he would leave him be, not stand next to the ropes with a 1200 suite and look good for the camera man, what is eubank sr's role, to regurgitate lines he read from shakespear

I think he's a decent prospect, he has an educated left hand & seems to have a spiteful streak which I like.

Eubank is doing well for someone with such little experience & he isnt getting easy fights early on in his career. I dont think he has the pop for his style to be that successful but he should be in some fun fights.

Looks useful, but I'm getting a rather ominous Tony Collins vibe.

This.

Also, Jnr sucks. I see no talent in him whatsoever. Anyone who says otherwise is clearly high.

british/european at best.i see nothing special about him at all.living off his old mans name and hype.seems to have no power watsoever,poor defence and doesnt seem that intersting as a person unlike his dad who had the it factor in charisma.
