    a short and painful struggle for the Turk

  • Olivier Veillette

    Eubank probably has the fastest hands in the SM division. Yildirim is a poor version of Abraham, so Eubank was more than ready for this one.

    • Arjay Cee

      Yes, good matchmaking by Sr. He knew exactly what kind of fighter to feed to his buzzsaw-in-training.

      Who do you like in Groves-Eubank Jr., Olivier?

      • Olivier Veillette

        Thanks for asking! Both fighters are about the same age, have the same number of fights to their records. But unlike Eubank Jr., Groves went through some very tough wars, so on one hand he’s shown great resilience but on the other hand, he might be “older” than Eubank Jr.. Eubank Jr. has more boxing skills, more speed. I’d say Eubank Jr. by UD. What do you think?

  • Oc

    Short, sharp and fast…Eubank is on his way…upwards and onward.

    Short, sharp and fast…the Turks experience of the night.

  • Jeez Louise

    This is what I don’t like about European referees, too eager to stop fights. Imagine if a European ref officiated Corrales V Castillo 1. He would’ve stopped it before it became interesting.

    • Phillippe Dida

      How is that a sign of him being a “European referee”?

    • Joshua Dougherty

      I don’t know about that. I often think stoppages are too early, but not this one. Look at the guy’s eyes when he gets hit with that last punch and goes down. He’s knocked out. No way he was getting up and ready to fight again within ten seconds. The ref saw that and called it. You can even see this was right when he was helped up and still stumbling back to his corner well past 10 seconds. Pretty clear KO imo.

    • DudandDol

      Eh? the fella would of been potentially cabbaged if he could of even got to his feet.

  • Arjay Cee

    Eubank Jr. threw about 21 punches in the sequence leading to the KO (starting with the body shot from the ropes). Impressive! To be sure Yildirim is a plodder there to be hit, but you can’t write off the ferocity, volume and accuracy in the winner. They kept the Turkish killer in a defensive posture. Maybe 2018 will finally see him in with bigger names.

  • tango2042

    I should admit that he was the better boxer but I totally dislike his arrogance which fully reassembled the one displayed by his father in the past. The Turkish didn’t care much of properly defending himself and pay the price against a very fast boxer.

    PLOD, PLOD, PLOD! CLONK!!
