Eubank Jr to face Chudinov on the undercard of Fury fight

Chris Eubank Jr clash with Dmitry ChudinovBoxing fans and live betting services around the world can’t wait to see Chris Eubank Jr clash with Dmitry Chudinov as part of the undercard of the Tyson Fury/Christian Hammer fight taking place in London’s O2 Arena on the 28th of February.

When Fury faces Hammer, the Brighton fighter’s challenge on the Russian will be the main support of the event.

Last time around, Eubank Jr had the first loss of his career when he took on rival Billy Joe Saunders, but if he beats Chudinov, who’s currently the Interim WBA middleweight champion, he could be on his way for a rematch, with Saunders ready to face Andy Lee from Ireland early next year, in a bid to clinch the WBO middleweight title.

The Russian is undefeated and a force to reckon with in the ring, as he was able to win 16 fights in the professional ranks, and two of those victories took place in London. In August, he was successfully able to defend his title twice when he took on Mehdi Bouadia of France.

In the card, Paul Butler, who’s the IBF bantamweight champion, will try to clinch a second title by taking on Zolani Tete, IBF super-flyweight champion.

Sergey Kovalev to put his titles on the line next year against Pascal

Sergey Kovalev vs. Jean Pascal on 3:14Sergey Kovalev, who is currently undefeated, is getting to ready to put his IBF, WBO, and WBA titles in jeopardy in Montreal when he faces Canadian Jean Pascal on March 14, in a fight that should prove to be very intense, and pay per head bookies everywhere can’t wait to see what will happen in the ring when these fighters lock horns.

In November, when he fought in his last meeting, Kovalev beat Bernard Hopkins with an undisputed decision.

“He’s the best possible opponent I could face in the weight division,” said the Russian, who was able to clinch 23 out of his 26 wins by means of knockout.

Kovalev is not worried at all about facing Pascal on his home ground after the fight that he had last year with Nathan Cleverly in Cardiff, when it took four rounds for the Russian to take him out.

“The ring is the same everywhere,” added Kovalev. “I plan to show who I am to Canadian boxing fans, and I aim to do the things they like to see in a ring.”

Sportsbook Software: Smith set to face Abraham again in Berlin

Paul Smith is set to take on Arthur Abraham in BerlinPaul Smith is set to take on Arthur Abraham in Berlin, as a rematch was granted for February 2, and now sportsbook software services can’t wait to see what will happen in the ring this time around.

In September, the Liverpool fighter lost by points to the super-middleweight champion of the WBO, but the scorecards eclipsed a very tough clash, seeing the American-German clinch the victory.

The officials almost didn’t recognise the amount of work that Smith put in the ring. Fernando Laguna – one of the three officials – gave a 119-109 verdict to Abraham, and an investigation into the fight’s scoring was held by the WBO.

The WBO first stressed that Abraham did not have to have a rematch with Smith, but ‘King Arthur’ agreed to fight him again.

Smith is set to visit Germany once more, but the fighter expects to see the judges give him fair treatment this time around.

“It was a very close fight,” he said. “It was a travesty the way it was scored and all I’ve asked for is a fair crack of the whip and now, after the controversy last time, I believe I’ll get a fair crack of the whip.
