Chris Eubank Jr takes on Antoli Muratov, live on talkSPORT this Saturday

Muratov is ranked seventh by the organization after losing just twice in his 27 fights, with 24 wins and 17 knockouts.

The 33-year-old has traveled extensively, having boxed away from home in Turkey, Switzerland, Poland, Hungary and the United States and his native Germany throughout his 27-fight career.

Eubank Jr is more excited than ever to make his world title dreams come true after seeing close friend Anthony Joshua drop his own belts on Saturday.

‘AJ’ was beaten by Oleksandr Usyk at Tottenham Hotspur Stadium on Saturday and his close friend promised a show.

Muratov is ranked No.7 by the WBA after winning 24 of his 27 fights, racking up 17 knockouts during that span and losing just twice.

“Absolutely, I’m excited,” Eubank Jr said on Sky Sports.

“Obviously, Anthony Joshua is a friend of mine. I’m a little disappointed that he lost, but that’s part of the game. We’ve all been there.

“If anything, it makes me want to fight even harder. I know the feelings he’s feeling now.

“The first thing you want to do is get back in the ring and win. We’re gonna do a hell of a show.
