Unbeaten Brighton man Harlem Eubank (15-0, 6 KOs) faces former WBA International Super Lightweight champion Tom Farrell (21-5, 5 KOs) in London’s famous York Hall on Friday November 25, live on Channel 5.
Eubank has put in some impressive performances on his way to his clash with Farrell, with a notable header in London on May 13, sending Sean ‘Masher’ Dodd to victory in in two rounds. It was another test with flying colors for Eubank, who was full of confidence as he continued to ‘0’ with his big goal.
With each performance, Eubank continues to show his improvement and continued ambition for bigger fights and bigger growth. The 28-year-old showed another side to his mind and skills in Newcastle on June 30 against Eliot Chavez when his Mexican opponent won. After landing several punches once the bell signaled the end of the round, or referee Kenny Pringle called a timeout, it was clear that Eubank’s dominance forced his opponent into such frustration.
“First of all, fighting at York Hall feels like home because a lot of my first fights where I learned the trade took place there and, historically, a lot of great fighters have fought in those four walls,” said Eubank.
“Improving my performance feels like a big moment for me, the next step in my career is moving to the top of the group and showing the world what I can do. Success is when preparation meets opportunity, and I’m looking for capture every moment in the ring.”
The aforementioned Sean Dodd knockout is when the boxing scene witnessed a dangerous tool Eubank could call upon; his left hand. Such a flashy punch can create mania around the boxer and increase the expectation that they will always continue to lose. Boxing comes first according to the Brighton singer, who will try to lead with his best.
“It’s all about going in there with a deep mindset, not looking for a penalty, but checking the box and creating opportunities. The opportunities present themselves naturally, and this is where I will find KO,” he said. “It’s about my fighting, and if I do that I’ll show people another glimpse of my abilities and the different parts of my game. It’s about me focusing on working for my best. “
“I’m still unlocking and developing my strength a lot – but I have speed, endurance and a good IQ. There’s a lot to unlock and show. I look at my opponent’s strengths, and how I can eliminate them and ignore their best qualities.”
Liverpool’s Tom Farrell will provide new questions for Eubank to answer in the highly anticipated Super Lightweight bout, with both fighters confident of winning their last fight.
Farrell defeated a Nigerian nightmare in Olaide Fijabi at the M&S Bank Arena Liverpool on June 30 as he did what he could to convince the judges when he showed his opponent a tough fight, and he is looking for another winning to stop Eubank’s rise. .
“He’s undefeated, and Wasserman has continued to build him up, so there’s a lot of pressure on him now, he’s going to be scared to lose his undefeated record, and I’ve got a lot of experience on him for a lot of rounds. I did it at the bank when I was working,” Farrell said.
“I can box and I am a natural fighter. He looks like a sharp boxer, who starts punching late, but makes mistakes. I think his lack of experience in hard fights will ensure his downfall.”
Farrell will be showing an amazing game, knowing all the familiarity of Eubank’s presence adds more excitement to the crowd. It’s another chance to go out with the headlines and take the baton from Eubank on his title quest.
There have been many famous nights at York’s Great Hall, and Farrell has every intention of adding this fight to the history books. ‘Fazza’ has already faced some big fights with the likes of Ohara Davies, and he knows the valuable lessons learned in high pressure situations can give him victory.
