Eubank Jr vs Yildirim Post Fight Wrap-Up – Analyst Frank Lotierzo checks in at TBC with his take on Chris Eubank Jr’s 3rd round stoppage of Avni Yildirim in the WBSS.
Prior to the fight, Lotierzo called Eubank Jr the favorite to win the bout and advance in the World Boxing Super Series but he did not expect the win to come via stoppage. Eubank Jr broke through in the opening round to send Yildirim down and from there it was only a matter of time before the colorful Brit earned the stoppage. Yildirim, who was previously undefeated at 16-0, did not have any answers for Eubank Jr. Yildirim could only plod forward with his hands held up in a defensive posture while Eubank Jr unleashed his trademark uppercut at will.
The victory sends Eubank Jr through to the semi-finals of the WBSS tournament where he awaits the winner of next Saturday’s match-up between George Groves and Jamie Cox at the Wembley Arena.
