Published Add your comment

Chris Eubank Jr has called for a rematch with Billy Joe Saunders after he made light work of Russian Dmitry Chudinov on Saturday night.

The new WBA interim middleweight champion is determined to even the score with Saunders, after losing narrowly on a split decision back in November.

Saunders used all his experience to gain an early lead against Eubank Jnr in London’s Excel Arena as two out of the three judges awarded him the win.

Signs of matching potential to performance

Having dominated Chudinov for 12 rounds before the referee finally stopped the fight, Eubank showed just how good he can be.

The Russian was unbeaten going into the fight but was made to look like a washed up fighter as Eubank Jr controlled the fight.

Fatherly advice has a positive impact

Having traded punches in the third round Eubank Sr had a word with his son and in the fourth Eubank Jr stepped it up and never looked back.

The young English fighter did have some luck on his side as after a series of close brawls his elbow inadvertently cut his opponents eye in the early rounds.

With the damage clear to see Eubank Jr went to work on the eye and with some quite brilliant combinations ensure the WBA title would remain in the UK.

Having put his real talents on show another fight between two of Britain’s promising young fighters could be set to go another 12 rounds.

Saunders had said that Eubank Jr would be first in line for another title shot we could well see these to going into battle once again.
