London- IBO super middleweight world champion Chris Eubank Jr. (24-1, 19 KOs) will face a stern challenge in his first defense when he takes on the power-punching former two-division champion Arthur Abraham (46-5, 30 KOs).

The fight is scheduled to take place at the SSE Arena, Wembley in London live on ITV Box office in the UK. 

The German slugger is no stranger to fighting British foes as he has faced the liked of Carl Froch, Martin Murray and Paul Smith in previous world title fights. 

Eubank will be making the first defense of his IBO super middleweight title which he won via tenth round technical knockout over Australian Renold Quinlan this past February. 

It's an interesting clash of styles as the younger Eubank Jr. will look to employ movement and precision punching against the hard-hitting Arthur Abraham.
