Former IBO super middleweight champion Chris Eubank Jr (29-2, 22 KOs) will be coming off a long layoff to face Marcus Morrison (23-3, 16 KOs) in a 10-round fight. This is a similar match-up to the Bivol vs Richards fight.
Morrison, 28, has no business inside the ring with a fighter of Eubank’s caliber, even as a warm-up opponent. I don’t know who came up with the idea for Eubank to fight Morrison, but it’s a bad one.
Even a ring rusty Eubank Jr is capable of better than this. Eubank Jr’s promoter Kalle Sauerland said this week that he wants to match him against Kell Brook in the summer in a stadium fight in the UK, and that would be the perfect warm-up fight for Chris.
Joseph Parker Vs Dereck Chisora – Main Event
The main event fight between former WBO heavyweight champion Joseph Parker (28-2, 21 KOs) and 37-year-old Dereck ‘War’ Chisora (32-10, 23 KOs) shapes up to be the most competitive fight on the entire card.
The reason for that is the way that the 29-year-old Parker has looked lately with his lackluster performance against Junior Fa and Alex Leapai.
Parker hasn’t fought a good opponent since his loss to Dillian Whyte in 2018, and he’s thrown away the last three years of his life by devoting himself exclusively to taking tune-ups.
