30-year-old Eubank Jr said Sky Sports“Who can tell me better than my father? Because my father taught me for so long, it was difficult to entrust it to just anyone. ‘
‘That’s why I haven’t had a full-time trainer for so many years. But Roy is exactly what I need to take me to the next level. ‘

Jones is convinced that he can be the best against Tyson and warned the 54-year-old that he would be “in trouble” if he did not take him down with an early attack.
He told TMZ Sports: “Mike doesn’t just look like a killer, Mike is also a killer. But all people have to realize is that Mike is a killer, Mike not a cheetah.
“Mike has to kill quickly, if he doesn’t kill quickly, he’s got problems on his hands.

The eight-round pay-per-view clash has been dubbed ‘Frontline Battle’ – and is expected to be fought in 12-oz gloves without a headgear.
Jones Jr built up an impressive reputation before retiring in February 2018, having achieved titles in four different weight classes: Middleweight, Super Middleweight, Light Heavyweight and Heavyweight.
