Chris Eubank junior says he is being treated like a super-hero after becoming the IBO world super-middleweight champion.

The Brighton fighter has been partying since stopping defending champion Renold Quinlan in the tenth round at London Olympia on Saturday night.

He spent the early hours of Monday morning with Canadian rapper Drake and Manchester United footballer Paul Pogba among others clubbing in London.

Pictures of the 27-year-old being lifted up by proud father Chris Eubank senior, the former two-weight world champion, in the dressing room were taken post-fight and his feet have not touched the ground since.

Eubank Jr told The Argus: “It was a special moment because it was something I had been dreaming of since I was a kid.

“There is nothing in the world like, if someone does not know who you are – which is getting rarer and rarer these days – asking ‘what do you do’ and being able to say I am a world champion boxer.

“When you say that, their eyes just light up and they say ‘wooow’.

“I’ve been walking around with people like Drake and Pogba, but having world champion written across that belt just changes way people are towards you. You become like a super hero.

“I walked around Selfridges with it and there are people from all around the world but they see the belt and they want a picture with you.

“They don’t know who I am or anything about boxing but when they see that belt they want a picture. It causes a scene.

“It’s a great feeling and it is kind of like the hard work and sacrifice over the years has put me in this position and I am grateful.”
