Harlem Eubank is a "chip off the old block" and will guarantee excitement in his second professional fight, says cousin Chris Eubank Jr.
The 23-year-old super-lightweight faces George Wright on this Friday's NXTGEN bill at York Hall in Bethnal Green, live on Sky Sports.
Chris Eubank Jr is hoping to be ringside at the iconic venue and predicts another impressive performance from a family member, a few days after he stopped Avni Yildrim to reach the semi-finals of the World Series of Boxing.
"I am going to try and make it," Eubank Jr told Sky Sports.
His first pro fight he got a first-round knockout, so he's a chip off the old block. He is definitely someone I would recommend watching

"We are very close and he's a new addition to Team Eubank and I wish him the very best. He trains hard and I know he will put on a show."
Harlem Eubank made his professional debut in Brighton in May, stopping Anto Nakic in the first round.
He follows in the footsteps of Conor Benn, Lawrence Okolie, Joshua Buatsi and Joe Cordina, who have all featured on past NXTGEN shows, while Reece Bellotti tops this week's card in a Commonwealth title fight.
"Harlem is a very slick fighter, good foot movement, good speed, one of those all-round fighters - he's good at everything," said Eubank Jr.
"His only weakness is his inexperience but he will learn and it will get better of course.
"He's very exciting to watch. His first pro fight he got a first-round knockout, so he's a chip off the old block.
"He is definitely someone I would recommend watching."
Watch Harlem Eubank on NXTGEN, featuring Reece Bellotti, Natasha Jonas, and more, live from York Hall, from 8.00pm, Friday, on Sky Sports Action.
