Eubank Jr defeated Arthur Abraham to retain his IBO world middleweight title and has now had an invitation to join Mayweather during sparring in Las Vegas
IBO super middleweight champion Chris Eubank Jr has been given the call to help out with Floyd Mayweather’s last fight against UFC’s Conor McGregor.
Eubank Jr said he is flying to Las Vegas to be part of Mayweather’s training camp in preparation for McGregor.
Eubank said: “Flying to Vegas to train with the Money Team before Mayweather vs McGregor on August 26.
“Awesome to be a part of Floyd’s last ever training camp.”
Mayweather, 40, has come out of retirement for one last fight taking on UFC lightweight champion McGregor in Las Vegas on August 26.
Eubank Jr is set to face undefeated Avni Yildirim in the World Boxing Super Series for the first round.
The 27-year-old, son of British boxing legend Chris Sr, defeated Arthur Abraham to retain his IBO super-middleweight title.
Eubank is hopeful of pressing forward in the tournament to meet WBA super middleweight champion George Groves in the final later next year.
Meanwhile fans are still being left in the lurch over what pay-per-view channel the superfight will even take place on.

According to Eddie Hearn, Mayweather has been calling for broadcasters to charge UK fight fans £100 for the pay-per-view fight.
Hearn said: “Mayweather wants the price to be £100.
“The price will be within the realms it always has. I don’t set the price, but my gut feeling is £19.95.”
Eubank Jr has also challenged Billy Joe Saunders to a rematch after Saunders, who has a traveller background, was stung by comments about the gypsy community.
He told SunSport: “The Eubanks – me and my dad – have the greatest respect for the travelling community and we are honoured they have supported both his and my career.”
