CHRIS EUBANK JR and Daniel Dubois have been STRIPPED of their world titles.

This comes after the WBA decided to scrap their ‘interim’ belts.

All interim belt holders have now lost their titles.

But opportunities are set to be around the corner for the fighters.

According to Michael Benson, former interim champions will now have one of two fates.

Some will be ordered into ‘final eliminators’.

Others will move directly into mandatory challenger status.

Eubank Jr, 31, was previously interim middleweight champ back in 2015.

He won the belt back in December 2019, when he defeated Russian Matt Korobov in New York.

And the 30-2 star most recently defended it against Marcus Morrison back in May.

Eubank Jr could now be in line for a fight with the WBA’s ‘super’ middleweight champion Ryota Murata.

Otherwise he could face their ‘regular’ champ Erislandy Lara.

Londoner Dubois, meanwhile, bounced back from his loss to Joe Joyce by beating Bogdan Dinu and picking up the WBA’s interim heavyweight title in June.
