Bradley Pryce steps in at short notice to face Chris Eubank Jr

Bradley Pryce

Former Commonwealth champion Bradley Pryce has accepted a late invitation to fight unbeaten middleweight Chris Eubank Jr in Belfast on Saturday.

Pryce has been training for a scheduled fight on 15 December and insists he is in "great shape" for Saturday's eight-round bout.

The 31-year-old Welshman lost on points to Commonwealth champion Billy Joe Saunders in his last fight in June.

Eubank Jr has won all of seven fights since turning professional in 2011.

His latest opportunity to impress will feature on the undercard of Tyson Fury's WBC heavyweight world-title eliminator at Odyssey Arena.

Pryce's old stable-mate, Joe Calzaghe, dethroned Eubank Jr's father, Chris Eubank, of his WBO super-middleweight crown in 1997.

Calzaghe then proceeded to dominate the 168lb division for more than 10 years.
