Chris Eubank Jr will make his American debut in December when he steps back down to middleweight.

The Brighton fighter will take on Matt Korobov for a vacant interim middleweight belt on December 7 at Barclays Center in Brooklyn, New York. 

And Eubank Jr is vowing to serve up a treat for fight fans Stateside.

He said: "I’m ready to take the United States and the middleweight division by storm.

“I’m excited to come down to 160 pounds where I naturally belong, and I don’t see anybody being able to touch me at this weight class.

"America is where I learned how to fight as an amateur in Las Vegas and 13 years later I’m finally going to make my U.S. professional debut.

"I can’t wait to show the fans in the U.S. that I’m the best middleweight in the world.”

The 36-year-old Korobov (28-2-1, 14 KOs) comes in off a majority draw against Immanuwel Aleem in his last fight in May while Eubank Jr has not fought since he beat James DeGale at super-middleweight in February at the O2.

Eubank Jr has fought in Germany and Saudi Arabia but never in the United States, where he was a successful amateur before joining the paid ranks in this country.
