Chris Eubank Jr will face Russia's Dmitry Chudinov on the Tyson Fury undercard at the O2 Arena in London on February 28.

Eubank Jr's challenge against Interim WBA middleweight champion Chudinov will be the chief support for Fury's defence of his WBO International heavyweight belt against Christian Hammer.
The Brighton fighter is coming off his first career loss against bitter rival Billy Joe Saunders in November, but victory over Chudinov could put him on the road to a rematch, with Saunders set to take on Irishman Andy Lee for the WBO middleweight title early in 2015.
Chudinov is unbeaten in 16 professional fights, and he defended his title for the second time in August stopping Frenchman Mehdi Bouadia in the third round.
