Liam Smith shocked the boxing world to beat Chris Eubank Jr in January after he finished Eubank with a spectacular knockout in the fourth round. This fight has been Smith’s standout moment in his career so far and the Liverpudlian 34-year-old will hope to continue this form when the pair step back into the ring together in June.

However, as has been pointed out by Wasserman’s Head of Global Boxing, Kalle Sauerland: “Hell hath no fury like a Eubank scorned and there was no chance Chris was going to let this one lie. He’s a wounded animal and this makes him extremely dangerous.

“No sooner had the fight finished, then Chris made it clear that he wanted to trigger the rematch clause and on June 17, he gets his shot at revenge. Smith, you have been warned. Beast mode is on!”

The fight, however, has had to be rescheduled due to an injury. Eubank has agreed to move the date after Smith asked for a delay in order to recovery from a minor injury. Smith has said: “It’s just an old injury niggle flaring up but I want to take the time to let it heal up so that I can enter the ring at 100%. A 100% Liam Smith beats Chris Eubank Jr every day of the week and twice on Sunday.”

Chris Eubank Jr has said: “Liam had the night of his life against me in January, the stars aligned for him in Manchester, and he went away with a big win. But lightning doesn’t strike twice. If he even has the slightest thought that he can beat me again, then great, because it will be his undoing.”

On the other hand, Smith has said: “I know (Eubank) tried his best to go a different route but the fight is on now and I am looking forward to hearing what he has to say for himself in the build up. Let’s see what angle he comes up with this time.

“He can’t come up with angles about how he’s never been hurt, he’s never been dropped, he’s never been stopped, because he just had all three of those things happen to him in one night and it was me who did it to him.”
