Harlem Eubank stole the show at the London o2 indigo, live on Channel 5 with a superb left hook in round two which left his opponent unable to continue.

Sean ‘Masher’ Dodd, former Commonwealth champion, had been chosen to give Harlem - nephew of former world champion Chris Eubank Snr - a tough test in his pursuit of the British title.

But the Brighton fighter made light work of him on the night.

“He’s going straight to the top, he lives the life and it’s in his blood. Harlem has his own style, it works very well for him, he’s going to the top of the division for sure. Team Eubank takeover,” cousin Chris Eubank Jnr told Channel 5 at ringside after Harlem’s victory.


Harlem is a product of the Brighton and Hove Amateur boxing club and now trains under the guidance of elite boxing coach Adam Booth. With his record now at 14-0, he is in the British super lightweight top ten and expects to compete for the title at the end of the year.

“I think the British title has my name on it, I’m coming through the division. It’s my time now!” he told Channel 5 after the fight.

Harlem has a remarkable path to boxing. At the age of 12, he signed with the Albion academy, playing football with the club until 16. He laced up his first pair of gloves at the late age of 18 when family tradition came calling. He went on to have an impressive amateur career, becoming Haringey champion in 2014 before he turned to the professional ranks. After eight years of dedication to the sport as a vegan athlete he is now ready to become Brighton’s next British champion.

A proud Albion supporter, Harlem has set his sights on a big fight at the Amex stadium to complete what was his academy player dream. Potential future opponents include rising star Conor Benn which will open a new chapter of the legendary Eubank v Benn boxing feud.

Harlem’s next fight will be another step up in opposition, live on Channel 5 terrestrial TV in July.
