Yildirim, 26, is unbeaten with a record of 16 wins 0 losses and 10 by way of KO, he comes from Turkey, boxes out of the Orthodox stance and uses a pressure fighting style to win his fights.
During the pre-fight press conference, Yildirim and his manager got into verbal altercations with Team Eubank, the tempers ran high but can the trash talk lead to an exciting fight is the real question or was it just pre-fight hype to build up interest.
The winner of this match will advance to the next round to face the winner of George Groves vs. Jamie Cox in the Semi Finals and will be one more step closer to capturing the Muhammad Ali Trophy.
