Harlem Eubank Dazzles In Stoppage
Win Over Timo Schwarzkopf In Brighton
Harlem Eubank's huge Brighton homecoming inspired the best
performance of his career as he stopped Timo Schwarzkopf to
win the WBO Global title.
Eubank was the first of his famous fighting family to
headline in their hometown since Chris Eubank Senior
defended his world title in the seaside resort, in the early
And he didn't disappoint the Brighton faithful who witnessed
a dazzling and vicious display from the 29-year-old who
became the first man to halt the battle-hardened
Schwarzkopf, stopping the German in the 11th round.
The fans at the Brighton Centre, who had seen Eubank floor
Schwarzkopf in the third round, were treated to a statement
performance from the unbeaten Harlem, who now moves to 19-0
after a whipping right hook sent his opponent to the canvas
for the second time in the fight.
Schwarzkopf got to his feet but the referee said he was in
no condition to carry on and stopped the fight after 42
seconds of the penultimate round.
Harlem Eubank told Channel 5: "It was great. I am the WBO
Global champion. Timo doesn't get stopped but I showed what
I can do.
"I can move, I can dance and I can sting them. I dropped him
early, showed the perserverance and got the finish. That was
the special homecoming I wanted. Look at the support, it's
crazy and it was a beautiful reception from my home people.
"If you get past the trickery, get past the dancing then
you'll see the power."
