Chris Eubank Jr reminded boxing fans what he's all about on Saturday night with a ruthless third round knockout of Avni Yildirim in the World Boxing Super Series.

It was one of Next Gen's most impressive victories yet and concluded with a single punch that saw Yildririm flop to the canvas completely dumbfounded.

Victory saw Eubank Jr retain his IBO super-middleweight championship and extend his already impressive professional record to 26-1.

The 28-year-old proceeded to call out George Groves after the fight who - assuming he defeats Jamie Cox - will step into the ring with his compatriot, no questions asked.

He declared: "George Groves, get through your next fight so we can give the boxing fans what they want to see. I think it's going to be exactly the same as what we saw tonight.

"I'm here to dominate this tournament. I'm sending a message out there that I'm coming."

Aside from Eubank Jr's crushing knockout victory, though, his father also attracted attention for a rather bizarre incident with a ring girl just after the fight.

Eubanks Sr endures as a legend of British boxing, winning the middleweight championship of the world and going no less than 43 bouts without defeat.

Since hanging up his gloves in 1998, the 51-year-old has been a constant fixture in his son's boxing career. The pair are very much a team in their love for boxing.

As a result, Eubank Sr was present in the ring when his son was interviewed about his victory and one tweeter spotted that he moved along a pair of ring girls from taking up the background of the footage.

It became something of a viral video with Eubank Sr shuffling the women along and encouraging them by uttering 'ladies.'

Furthermore, Eubank Jr has now acknowledged the incident with a sensational tweet of his own, in reaction to the video. Check it out below:

Whether you're a fan of Next Gen or not, this is simply brilliant.

The moral of the story being: don't photobomb Eubank Jr or his dad will have something to say and do about it.
