IBO champ Quinlan urges UK fans to come witness him KO Eubank Jr.
Renold Quinlan has suddenly been thrown into the limelight after just twelve fights following his knockout victory over former world champion Daniel Geale last October.
Prior to the Geale win, the 27 year-old Aussie had an unremarkable C.V which he now takes into a dangerous looking IBO super-middleweight title defense against hard-punching Brit Chris Eubank Jr. in England next month.
Quinlan has been speaking about his opponent at various press gatherings this week and believes Eubank’s ‘Marmite’ persona could be his undoing as the two prepare to lock horns on ITV Pay-Per-View.
“From what I’ve been told not many people like Eubank and, if that’s the case, I hope you all come to witness me knock him out,” said Quinlan.
“This is going to be an absolute war. I know Eubank is tough but my plan is to fight my own fight and take him into deep water. Most of his wins have come by stoppage. I’ve never been stopped before so he can forget about that.
“I expect to stop him late in the fight. He has never faced anyone like me and he will feel it from my first punch.
“After knocking out Daniel Geale and becoming the IBO super middleweight champion, the last thing I wanted to do was take an easy fight. I want the best and nothing else.
“I’m coming over to excite the fans. All of my fights have been like that and I don’t intend on changing anything,” he added.
