Interim WBA world middleweight champion Chris Eubank Jr has signed with Matchroom.

The 26-year-old middleweight (19-1-KO14) will make his debut on the Kell Brook v Diego Chaves card on October 24 - with Adam Booth now part of his team in a coaching capacity.

Eubank Jr has been defeated just once in his career - suffering a split decision loss to world title challenger Billy Joe Saunders in London in November 2014 with the British, Commonwealth and European titles on the line.

He was quick to bounce back, though, as he scored a final-round stoppage of Dmitry Chudinov at The O2 to get his hands on an interim world belt.

Eubank Jr is managed by his father, Chris Eubank, and Matchroom promoter Eddie Hearn is hopeful he can follow in the footsteps of the former world middleweight champion, who illuminated the sport in the 1980s and 1990s and was involved in arguably the UK's most famous boxing rivalry with Nigel Benn.

Hearn told Sky Sports: "I'm very excited to be working with Chris Eubank Jr. I've enjoyed seeing his career evolve and now it's time to take it to the next level. He is an outstanding young fighter and the story tells itself.

"I spent most of my childhood following his father all over the world and watching him and my own dad go on a remarkable journey together. I'm excited to go on that same journey and I believe even more is possible.
