Hall of Fame promoter Frank Warren yesterday announced the bout between Chris Eubank Jr and Tommy Langford is on for Cardiff’s Motorpoint Arena on October 22nd. After the Eubank Team let a big money world title fight with unified middleweight champion Gennady Golovkin slip away, Warren snapped up the Eubank-Lanford clash at a purse bid for Eubank’s British middleweight mandatory.
The WBO #2 ranked Langford said: “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’m delighted that he’s stepped up to face me after fears he could vacate.”
