Chris Eubank Jr’s Cousin Harlem Scores Stunning KO Then Loses


It’s no surprise to see the Eubanks in the headlines for their perceived eccentricities outside of the ring and their prowess inside.

But yesterday it was the lesser-known Harlem Eubank who stole the show, as he scored a stunning knockout on the undercard of a British middleweight title clash between Denzel Bentley and Linus Udofia.

Harlem went down after knocking out their opponent

Chris Eubank Jr’s cousin, Harlem, has quietly forged his professional boxing career to the point that he’s now built a 14-0 record, with six knockouts.

Harlem fights in the welterweight division, but has yet to compete for national or world titles.

If he continues in the same vein as last night, we could see him climb the ranks quickly.

As the second round of his fight with Sean Dodd drew to a close, Harlem found his opponent’s chin with a clean left hook, leaving him unable to continue.

Harlem wasn’t done though, as in typical Eubank showman style, he then bowed to his opponent who was lying flat on the canvas.

Eubank Jr was watching from the ring and he posted a video of the knockout on his Instagram story with the simple message of “done” to his fans.

As for Eubank Jr, he is Currently pursuing a fight with Gennady Golovkin, who now appears to be without an opponent for September.

Golovkin was set to fight Canelo, but after the Mexican was beaten by Dmitry Bivol, he now wants a rematch and so ‘Triple G’ will have to look elsewhere for a challenge.

So far, there has been no response from Golovkin.
