Chris Eubank Jr has confirmed his return fight will be rescheduled – after his opponent Anatoli Muratov was pulled out on medical grounds.
Eubank Jr was due to debut as the new star of Sky Sports Boxing against the German at Wembley Arena.
But in a dramatic turn of events, Muratov was withdrawn after the British Board of Boxing Control raised concerns over his pre-fight medicals.
Eubank Jr, who has been promised a blockbuster by the end of the year, revealed he will still fight by the end of the month.
He posted on Instagram: “The fight is off my opponent failed a medical exam I’ll now box later this month.
“Apologies to everyone that bought tickets nobody is more disappointed than me.
“Life continues to throw these obstacles at me but I’m a man of faith in the end everything will work out how its supposed to.”
