The WBO middleweight champion Billy Joe Saunders has never been afraid to say what he feels, and when Chris Eubank made some accusations about the 26-year-old on social media yesterday, he was always going to take exception.
The former two-weight champion, who now manages his son Chris Eubank Jr., implied that Saunders has been avoiding giving his son a rematch following on from their last meeting back in November 2014.
Saunders was the winner on that occasion - as he has been in all of his 23 fights - as he moved past Eubank Jr. via a split decision. Since then, Saunders is now a world champion while Next Gen is the British middleweight champion.

Given that both men have been looking for a bout with Gennady Golovkin and have come up empty-handed, the idea that they might have another high-profile domestic showdown has picked up pace.
Eubank fired the first shots on Twitter yesterday when he said: "He [Saunders] needs to perform and not have the belt collect more dust. 9 months inactive. #shameful."
Mere hours later, Saunders responded to the accusation with a 1:16 tirade on Youtube and as part of the video he insisted he has moved past national fights.
"Stop talking s*** to get your son talked about. He's already said he wants to defend his British title and win it outright and I'm certainly not going back down to British level."
Saunders went on to claim that Eubank Jr. was a "loser" and he is setting his sights on Golovkin in the near future.
"You want to get a few facts right," Saunders continued. "If you want an 80%-20% split then speak to my manager and my promoter. That split is in my favour because I'm the champion, I've already beaten you and you're a loser in my eyes.
"I've moving on to bigger and better things. I'm certainly looking at the big fights - including Golovkin - in the next couple."
Well, it appears as though Eubank's mouth is causing his son problems yet again. Would you want to see these two duke it out once more? Let us know below.
