Nathanael Wilson to fight on brother Chris Eubank Jr’s title bill
Frank Warren prospect Nathanael Wilson is set to fight on estranged brother Chris Eubank Jr’s British title defence against Tommy Langford next month, WBN were informed on Tuesday.
The super-lightweight, who has nothing to do with his famous father Chris Eubank Sr, is just over a year older than Eubank Jr. and was the result of a brief romance between his mother and the former world champion in late 1987.
Frank Warren confirmed the interesting news that Wilson will take his place on the same bill as Eubank Jr. at a press conference for Billy Joe Saunders in London and manager Alec Wilkey is aiming for a busy upcoming period for the fledgling fighter.
“Nathanael signed with Frank Warren around three months ago,” Wilkey exclusively told World Boxing News. “We are happy that he’s fighting on the Eubank Jr. v Langford British title bill and we are hoping to keep him active.”
Wilson has already been linked to a clash with 140 pound rival Conor Benn in what would be a massive second-generation event. Wilson and Benn’s superstar dad’s fought famous battles in the early 1990’s at middleweight and super-middleweight in one of the fiercest rivalries in British boxing history.
For now, Wilson has an outing in Cardiff to deal with, which could see the Londoner earn a TV spot for the first time in his early career. ‘Banks’ is currently 3-0 since turning pro six months ago.
