It was an honor to fight at Madison Square Garden for the first time. Thanks to my promoter Lou DiBella for bringing me here and I hope to return in the near future."

Ceballo will now be looked up as one of the best prospects in the welterweight division with the win over the acclaimed Eyubov.

"We did what we had to do to win tonight. He was a tough opponent. We knew that. We took this step up. We had another opponent lined up and (promoter) Tom Loeffler said "If you want to be on this card, you have to take this bout." We did not even hesitate. We said if it's on DAZN, its on the biggest platform, it's time to showcase our skills, and I think we did that tonight," said Ceballo.

"We have a big amateur pedigree. I had 219 amateur fights, and I fought all over the world, and we jumped on this opportunity because it was right on all angles. We needed a bigger step up then our last opponent where we got a 3rd round stoppage. We said this is the platform to do it here at the Mecca of Boxing Madison Square Garden and on DAZN. We work so hard in the gym on how to take shots. We are here for the long run. We have to sit back and talk to our team. Weather we take another step up."

Ceballo is promoted by 360 Promotions.
