Can Billy Joe Saunders and Chris Eubank Jr just have a rematch already?

Ever since Saunders' split decision victory over the 27-year-old back in 2014, the two have been in a constant war of words over a potential second fight.

Indeed, back in January, Eubank Jr named his 'nemesis' as one of three boxers - including James DeGale and Gennady Golovkin - that he wants to face in 2017.

"Saunders has a win over me and that fight is never going to leave my mind until I even the score," he said, per the Independent.

"It was my first twelve round fight and I'd only gone eight rounds before that. I believe that played a big part in my performance as far as pacing myself too much early on during the fight.

"I'm much more experienced, much stronger and much quicker.

"Everything about me is so much more finely tuned that I believe in the rematch, when it does happen, I believe it's going to be a complete annihilation. I'll take the guy out in four rounds."

Saunders' apparent unwillingness to rematch Eubank Jr has been brought up on a number of occasions over the past year, with even Chris Eubank Sr questioning his appetite.

But that hasn't stopped the WBO middleweight champion from running his mouth on social media, with Saunders and Eubank Jr engaging in another Twitter spat on Thursday.

In response to Saunders denying he has confirmed a fight with Golovkin, Eubank Jr called the 27-year-old a "fraud" and claimed he's scared of him (see below).

But Saunders knows exactly how to get under Eubank Jr's skin and so he gave the perfect response by bringing up his superior boxing record of 24-0.

Eubank Jr then tried to hit back, but the war had already been won.

Unsatisfied with mocking Eubank Jr's record, Saunders then tweeted a picture of him and his friends with the caption "Anyone up for being the 7th S club seven making a come back".
