888poker celebrates its 20th anniversary by signing former two-time IBO-super middleweight world champion Chris Eubank Jr. as Cultural Ambassador.

Currently ranked no. 1 by the World Boxing Association and BoxRec's in the global middleweight division, Chris has marked his place high up in the boxing world.

He defeated Marcus Morrison and Wanik Awdijan in 2021. This coming February, he is due to kick-start his 2022 boxing calendar with a highly-anticipated face-off against Liam Williams.

Boxing and Poker Skills
Outside the boxing ring, Chris Eubank Jr. is an avid and highly-skilled poker player. He has played high stakes poker games all over the world. He also made a guest appearance on Poker After Dark, PokerGo's high stakes poker series.

Chris Eubank Jr. said about the new signing, "Poker is one of the great passions in my life, so I am delighted to partner with 888poker. For me, the beauty of poker is in its community. And 888poker is doing a fantastic job of making poker more about fun and less about the grind for players in all levels with its user-friendly platform.

"I'm excited to officially kick-start the partnership in the coming months and can't wait to meet the 888poker community at the tables!"

many ambassadors for poker rooms and this can be a disadvantage for players. I would prefer them to come from among the players and make a nice advertisement because they are good at poker. That would be better for them because those good players can benefit from their poker talk.
