The all British middleweight showdown between Chris Eubank Jr. and Liam Smith takes place on Saturday live on DAZN.
This Saturday, U.K. boxing fans will be treated to an all-British showdown between two fighting families. Middleweight contender Chris Eubank Jr. (32-2) will go up against Liam ‘Beefy’ Smith (32-3-1). The fight will be streamed live on DAZN, and the current odds are close enough to where both men can argue about who will come out victorious.
Smith had a pretty productive 2022 (by the current boxing standards) as he stepped into the ring twice and scored back-to-back TKO victories. Smith has gone up against the who’s who in boxing but has always come up on the short end of the stick. This one is more of a friendly rivalry, but at 34, can he put together a game plan to defeat Eubank Jr?
Eubank Jr. only stepped into the ring once last year and scored a unanimous decision victory over Liam Williams (24-4-1). If you remember, Eubank Jr. was supposed to fight Conor Benn, but Benn tested positive for banned substances during fight week. Eubank Jr. has had a weird career up to now as he hasn’t faced the top names like Gennadiy Golovkin or Jermall Charlo. Is this the year we see him in a significant fight?
