Who is Anatoli Muratov?

Antoli Muratov, 33, is ranked #7 by the WBA, and has come into the fight as a very late replacement for Sven Eibir.

Eibir tested positive for Covid – which was announced on Monday just five days before the fight – and he was out.

The Kazakh-born German Muratov has won 24 out of his 27 fights, with two defeats and one draw.

Muratov is ranked ahead of Elbir, the WBA’s No 15, and has not lost since August 2014.

What have they said?

Eubank Jr: “The opponent has changed but the objective remains the same. War time in 5 days live on Sky Sports.”

Speaking after Anthony Joshua’s loss to Oleksandr Usyk, Eubank Jr said:

“Absolutely, I’m fired up.

“Obviously Anthony Joshua is a friend of mine. I’m a little deflated that he lost, but it’s part of the game. We’ve all been there.

“If anything, this makes me want to fight even harder. I know the feelings he’s going through now.

“The first thing you want to do is get back in the ring and win. We’re going to put on a hell of a show.”
