Undefeated middleweight Tommy Langford (17-0, 6 KOs) is confident he has what it takes to win the British title against current beltholder Chris Eubank Jr (23-1, 18 KOs). “I’m delighted Frank Warren has won the purse bid and that I’ll be fighting for the famous Lonsdale Belt,” said Langford. “I need a scalp of his magnitude to project my profile and Eubank is one of the biggest names on the scene at the moment.
“We’ve sparred in the recent past and, though you can’t take too much into that, I know what he does well and what he doesn’t do well and believe my style exploits his. Sure, Chris Jr is dangerous but Billy Joe Saunders exposed his limitations with his quality and movement. I know I’ve got the tools to beat him, I hope he doesn’t do his usual when it comes to a big threat and vacate the title.”
