A straightforward victory at Olympia London saw him crowned the IBO super-middleweight champion, although the critics are far from convinced. Unlike the other governing bodies, the IBO is yet to really be accepted by the boxing world, and to add to that lack of credibility comes the calibre of opponent.
Renold Quinlan was easy pickings for the Brit. Even if he showed plenty of heart to take it to the deep waters, he was eventually blitzed out in the tenth-round. It all went to plan for Team Eubank, with their man performing on a returning platform as ITV attempted to put their mark back on British boxing with ITV Box Office.
Considering how much money and numbers talk in this game, the promoters could be obliged to leave more fans disgruntled with pay-per-views: and not necessarily marquee match-ups. That's a problem in itself, but what makes it worse is the post-fight billing which attempts to convince that something bigger is on the horizon.
The callouts to the very best fighters at the division and beyond from either himself of his father have proven to be merely reserve some space in the media as of yet. Gennady Golovkin has been the agenda for a while, but the one time that fight was close it all fell apart due to apparently absurd demands from Senior. He's also been quick to sound off on James DeGale.
The shows and spectacles may be smoke and mirrors, but there are few deceptions about his talent. His volume of strikes can be overwhelming and allows him to bypass the issues that people claim about his power. The athleticism and style understandably emulates his father - and with the right backing he can emulate the success too.
The title bout at the Olympia was indeed an experiment, but also a platform. Even without breaking into the upper echelon of competition he was able to showcase himself - but as harsh as it may sound his training videos may paint a much better picture.
A world championship title, although not recognised by most with the lack of credibility for the IBO, will be an integral step in allowing him to surpass the "prospect" phase of his career. But for only so long can he be the A-side.
In this sport, you need to take risks. At the moment, Eubank Jr. and Sr. are not willing to take them. If that doesn't change anytime soon, then regret could be the biggest legacy the son leaves behind.
