James DeGale vs Chris Eubank Jr Betting Preview
Two bitter British rivals are set to lace up the gloves in a super-middleweight showdown at the O2 Arena, London, 23 February.
Eubank Jr is coming off a loss to recently retired George Groves where many believed Jr was found out against a very smooth operator. DeGale, however, vacated his IBF world super-middleweight title in July. Although there isn't any gold on the line, many boxing fans are interested in this fight mainly because of the personal undertones. Putting it bluntly, these guys really don't like each other. Big egos, a heated rivalry and boxing talent is the perfect mixture to create an entertaining fight.

Bet UK Headline Tip
29-year-old Chris Eubank Jr is the son of British boxing legend Chris Eubank who dominated the middleweight division in the 90s. In this fight he has a point to prove after losing against George Groves in the World Boxing Super Series via a wide points decision. But before this Jr had taken out eight of his past 10 opponents since his single loss to Billy Joe Saunders in 2014. It is hard to ignore the power, speed and hunger of the younger man here, in perhaps the most important fight of his life. I will be taking advantage of the Bet UK group round betting market.
