Eubank Jr. vs Abraham Betting Pick

Held at London’s Wembley Arena and live on ITV Box Office, Chris Eubank Jr. defends his lightly-regarded IBO super-middleweight title against former two-weight, three-time world champion Arthur Abraham.

Quite honestly, whilst I’d normally write a preview detailing each boxer and their respective careers so far, I’m currently very distracted by the Star Sixes indoor football tournament on Sky Sports (well, Kodi box here), am now watching the England U19 team in a final and the Eubank Jr. v Abraham boxing card starts in 60 minutes, so I’d better just get to the point.

‘King’ Arthur Abraham is a tough man, going the distance in a loss to Carl Froch and even winning with a broken jaw against Edison Miranda, and is also the more experienced fighter at super-middleweight.

Eubank Jr. is a vicious hitter, though, particularly with the uppercut, and with Abraham being well past his prime and bouts more likely, in my opinion, to be stopped by ref’s in Britain than in Germany or certainly USA, a late stoppage win for junior is my fear and worth a small punt at the 13/2 price to happen in rounds 9-12 if you don’t like odds-on bets and prefer a chancier approach.

All in all, however, and with ideal pick over 7.5 total rounds way too short to back, the logical pick is for Eubank Jr. to win on points at a 4/5 best price. Abraham has been stopped once in is pro career, but that was only because his eye had swollen grotesquely shut and the ref had to stop the bout in the second round.

Recommendation: Eubank Jr. to win on points (4/5)
