Chris Eubank Jr may be the favourite heading into his upcoming bout, but his opponent Avni Yildirim’s coach says he doesn’t fear the title holder.

Eubank Jr’s (25-1, 19 KOs) IBO World Super Middleweight belt will be on the line against and Yildirim (16-0, 10 KOs) when the two trade punches in a Boxing Super Series contest in Halle, Germany, on October 7.

“I do not fear Eubank Jr. He has nothing to stop Avni. Eubank is a kid, a spoiled kid who thinks he is a brave tough guy, he is not,” Yildirim’s coach Ahmet Oner was quoted as saying by The Voice.

Oner, 45, a former boxer himself, went on to call Eubank Jr the “cheap version” of retired superstar Floyd Mayweather.

“His father (Eubank Sr) was an actor and a fighter with good power punches. Eubank Jr has good movement, but he has no power.

“Eubank Jr is a cheap version of Floyd Mayweather. He thinks he is Mayweather, but he is not.”
