'This is going to be an absolute war'

BOXING: Australia's Renold Quinlan will be hoping to cash in on the public's perceived dislike of England's Chris Eubank Jnr when the two face off in London next month.

On February 4, Quinlan will defend the IBO super-middleweight title he won by knocking out fellow Aussie Daniel Geale in October.

The 27-year-old from Port Macquarie in New South Wales is hoping to be the crowd favourite and is predicting he will knock out Eubank Jnr, who has only lost one fight.

"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,” Quinlan said.

"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.”

Quinlan, whose father is Aboriginal and mother Fijian, has been a sparring partner of Anthony Mundine and has an 11-1 (7KO) record.
