Eubank-McDonagh is a scheduled 10-round fight that will take place on the undercard of the 168-pound tournament final between world titleholder George Groves and British countryman Callum Smith. If either Groves or Smith is unable to compete in the final, Eubank would take his position and have a chance to win the Muhammad Ali Trophy that will be awarded to the tournament winner.
Eubank (26-2, 20 KOs), 29, of England, was part of the eight-man tournament field, knocking out Avni Yildirim in the third round of the quarterfinals 11 months ago and then losing a unanimous decision to Groves in the semifinals.
“I have been training hard in [Las] Vegas, and I am looking be a part of the event in Jeddah,” Eubank said. “I am preparing for any scenario that may present itself.”
McDonagh (16-4, 8 KOs), 32, a southpaw from Ireland, is taking a massive step up in opposition against Eubank. McDonagh turned pro in 2009 and has faced extremely low-level opposition.
