Chris Eubank Jr to join Floyd Mayweather Jr training camp

Pound-for-pound king Floyd Mayweather Jr invites Chris Eubank Jr to join his training camp ahead of his mega fight with Manny Pacquiao in May.

British middleweight Chris Eubank Jr has admitted that it was an easy decision to accept Floyd Mayweather Jr's invitation to help him prepare for his showdown with Manny Pacquiao.

Eubank Jr will train with Mayweather in Las Vegas ahead of the most lucrative match in boxing history, and he has revealed that it didn't take much consideration to get involved in an event that he describes as a "once-in-a-lifetime" opportunity.

The 25-year-old is quoted by Sky Sports News as saying: "I'm going there because this is the biggest fight of the century. This is something that, if you have the ability to be a part of, you have to. This is a once in a lifetime thing.

"I'm going to go over and train with the Money team and experience the whole build-up."

Eubank will attempt to win the interim WBA title on Saturday night when he faces Dmitry Chudinov at the O2 Arena in London.
