Last Night at the O2 Arena in London, former British middleweight champion Chris Eubank Jr beat former Olympic and two-time world champion James DeGale via unanimous decision to become the IBO world super-middleweight champion.
The 29-year old Eubank Jr, son of English legend Chris Eubank Sr boxed beautifully and showed massive improvements in his game. Although the scorecards were a bit unfair to Jr as it read 114-112, 115-112 and 117-109. Jr thoroughly beat James Degale.
Jr dropped DeGale twice in the fight. The first knockdown was scored in the second round and the second knockdown was in the tenth round.
However, something very unique happened in the fight in the eleventh round, when Eubank Jr tried a WWE move on the former Olympic champion. Jr attempted a Goldberg spear and threw DeGale on the canvas. This was probably the biggest highlight of the fight.
James DeGale has been on the decline for a while now as he has lost two of his last three fights inside the ring. He suffered a massive upset loss to Caleb Truax back in December of 2017, he then defeated Truax in the rematch, but then last night he was beaten by Eubank Jr in a highly entertaining pay-per-view fight in London.
