Chris Eubank Jr. (29-2, 22 KOs) got a win in his U.S. debut on Saturday night, but not in the way he or any of his fans would have wanted.
The fight was just heating up in the second round when his opponent, Matt Korobov (28-3-1, 14 KOs), suffered a left shoulder injury and couldn't continue fighting.
The match, held at the Barclays Center in Brooklyn, New York, was ruled a second-round TKO win for Eubank, who earned the interim WBA world middleweight title with the decision.
In the second round, Korobov threw another left and immediately showed signs he was in pain.
Eubank might have to get in a tune-up bout before he goes after the likes of Jermall Charlo, the WBC world middleweight champion who was on the same Barclays Center card as Eubank.
