ITV has announced exclusive live coverage of Chris Eubank Jnr's fight with Renold Quinlan in the return of The Big Fight Live.
Chris Eubank’s fights captivated audiences on ITV more than 20 years ago, and now his son is following in his footsteps.
The IBO World Super Middleweight Title fight between Chris Eubank Jnr, Britain’s number one middleweight, and Quinlan, holder of the IBO World Super Middleweight Title, will be shown on ITV Box Office, ITV’s new pay-per-view channel, early in 2017. This will be the first time ITV will show a pay-per-view event.
Chris Eubank Jnr said: “I feel blessed to have this opportunity to work with ITV after they first showcased my father 26 years ago. I intend to deliver more of what my father did: speed, power, accuracy, showmanship and the will to fight and beat the best of the best."
Talking about ITV's latest sports offering Niall Sloane, ITV Director of Sport, said: “Live coverage of this world title fight featuring one of Britain’s most exciting young boxers is an event we hope will appeal to sports fans across the country. Many people will recall watching Chris Eubank Jnr’s father in action in some of his most memorable fights on ITV, so it feels fitting for the Eubank name to feature in the first broadcast on our new channel.”
The broadcaster will announce details of how to register to view "well in advance" of the event.
