ITV to air Eubank Jr v Quinlan fight

ITV is set to show boxer Chris Eubank Jr’s World Title fight against Renold Quinlan on its new pay-per-view service. In early 2017, you’ll be able to order the match from ITV Box Office.

The apple clearly doesn't fall far from the tree for the Eubanks, as Junior is Britain's top middleweight right now. The IBO World Super Middleweight Title fight, however, will see him go up against current title holder Quinlan in a bid to see who's really the world champion.

Eubank Jr said: "We are the Next Generation and my team and I will now show fight fans the highest standard and quality of world championship boxing entertainment.

"I feel blessed to have this opportunity to work with ITV after they first showcased my father 26 years ago. And 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. Maybe even with a little bit more swagger!"

The fight will be the very first thing you can order from the new ITV Box Office, which will be available on most TV services as well as online.

ITV will reveal more details about pricing and how to register "in due course" - expect to find out in the next couple of months.

As well as the match itself, ITV4 will also show an evening of live boxing from some other competitions. Again, there aren't many details yet, but ITV promises "some of Britain's best and brightest talent".
