Degale vs Eubank Live stream Former Super Middleweight World Champion James DeGale meets British rival Chris Eubank Jr. in a grudge match that kicks off the new partnership between PBC and UK network giant ITV.
One of British boxing’s best matchups—and one of its worst kept secrets—was finally announced today.
On Saturday, February 23, James DeGale and Chris Eubank Jr. will finally throw down at the O2 Arena in London, England. The event, the first in the U.K. by America’s Premier Boxing Champions, marks a return to the sport for ITV. The network will air the card on their box office platform.
The brash pair didn’t hold back during the verbal back-and-forth at today’s press conference at Hotel Café Royal in London. DeGale, a former two-time world champion, has a lengthy history with the Eubank family dating back to his Olympic days in 2008. This bout was prophesied even back then and, based on his commentary while addressing the media today, “Chunky” has spent the subsequent years dreaming about the opportunity to shut the mouths of Eubank Jr and his father, British legend Chris Eubank Sr.
“This fight has been a long time coming,” DeGale said. “When he first turned professional, he was calling me out. This guy is deluded. On the 23rd February, I get a big chance to deal with this guy good and proper and finish him because after me I don’t know where he has to go.
Joe Joyce (7-0, 7 KOs) will be facing former WBC heavyweight champion Bernane Stiverne (25-3-1, 21 KOs) on February 23 on the undercard of James DeGale v. Chris Eubank Jr. at the O2 Arena in London, England, according to @BaylorICTV. Joyce vs Stiverne live
