The son of a former world middleweight and super middleweight champion is due to compete at a show hosted by West Hill Amateur Boxing Club.

Seb Eubank, the youngest son of retired British boxing great Chris Eubank, is on the card for West Hill’s show at Hollington Community Centre on Saturday night.

Regarded as a good prospect, the 22-year-old light heavyweight is quite a powerful boxer who reached the national final of the Junior Novice Championships last year. He has won the majority of his bouts so far and is due to face a fighter from Sevenoaks on Saturday.

Speaking on Tuesday afternoon, West Hill ABC matchmaker Dave Bishop said he had 18 bouts holding up and around 14 boxers from the host club on the card.

Doors will open at 7pm and the boxing will start half-an-hour later. Admission is £10 for adults, and £5 for children and concessions. Early arrival is recommended to guarantee entry.

Two West Hill boxers were in action last weekend, meanwhile, at a show hosted by Ockley Boxing Club in Surrey.

First up was Elliot Hedger (11yrs, 36kg), who recorded his first victory in his second bout. He chalked up a unanimous points win against Franky Balon (11yrs, 36kg), of Triple A Boxing Club.

Tommy Lee (14yrs, 57kg) made it a victory double for West Hill by defeating Shane Brazil (14yrs, 56kg), of Littlehampton Boxing Club, also by a unanimous points decision.
