Seb Eubank has been handed his big break with a place in the Ultimate Boxxer 7 super-middleweight tournament.

Seb’s father, Chris, was a world champion at super-middle while brother Chris Jr won the IBO belt before recently stepping back down to middleweight.

Now Seb, 28, is hoping to continue the Brighton fighting dynasty with a title of his own after a successful amateur career with Brighton & Hove ABC.

Eubank has had a stop-start pro career so far but will be mixing it with some of the top British super-middleweights in Manchester on April 3 with a chance to make a real name for himself.

Fans have loved the explosive format in which eight fighters go head to head in a knockout tournament to compete for the Golden Robe.

With a surname that always turns heads among the boxing community, Eubank will be there to be shot down but is one of the least experienced pro fighters on the bill.

Although unbeaten, he has only had two fights and they were almost a year apart after he joined the pro ranks in 2018.

He was due to fight at the O2 last February on the undercard of brother Chris’s big win over James DeGale but after getting as far as the ring apron the bout was shelved as the show was over running.

He has previously fought at light-heavyweight and has a reputation for power, which should suit in the short format of this competition.

Eubank, who trains out of the Brighton & Hove Gym as well as Fit Lab, Worthing, has big boots to follow in the competition.

Nick Webb, who is mentored by Brighton’s Scott Welch, won the UB6 Heavyweights before Christmas and is a regular gym-mate of Eubank.

Four quarter-finals of three three-minute rounds will be followed by two semi-finals before one grand finale to determine who will take home the title. The quarter-final pairings will be announced in the coming weeks. The show, at the Planet Ice Arena, Altrincham will be broadcast live on BT Sport.

Meanwhile, former Brighton-based fighter Alex Dilmaghani will challenge for European Super-Featherweight champion Samir Ziani’s belt on Saturday April 25 at the National Sports Centre, Crystal Palace, live on Channel 5.
