A BOXER has shared a video ahead of his highly anticipated return to the ring.

Chris Eubank Jr is due to fight Marcus Morrison on May 1. The boxer from Hove has shared a video of him travelling up to Manchester.

In the video, captioned the calm before the storm, Eubank Jr can be seen leaving his home and driving his recognisable McLaren car down Brighton seafront on the A259. The boxer seemed to receive support from fans who were captured on in the video.

Eubank Jr appears to be in good spirits ahead of the fight and is looking forward to stepping back into the ring.

He said: “Heading for the bout and getting the last few things ready before going up to Manchester, I’ve had a long hard training camp.

"I can’t wait to run into that ring and dust off all that ring dust. It has been a long time since I have fought, so it is very exciting, let’s see what happens.”

After a few “good luck watermelon pieces” to eat, Eubank Jr set off on his journey up north.
