Chris Eubank Jr. Self-Assured of Beating Liam Smith


When it comes to the dangerous sport of boxing, it’s imperative that fighters are jam-packed with self-belief. Thankfully for him, middleweight boxer Chris Eubank Jr. (32-3, 23 KO’s) produces more confidence than McDonalds does salty fries. This is why he fully intends on beating Liam “Beefy” Smith (33-3-1, 20 KO’s) in their September 2 rematch, despite being knocked out in the fourth round of their first encounter.

Now, in their immediate rematch, eight months later, Eubank Jr. is ready to correct the mistakes of the past. Yet, let Eubank Jr. tell it, he was doing everything right minus those few critical seconds that he got clipped. During a recent media roundtable, the unflappable boxer was only too happy to explain his mindset on the matter.

“I’m not going to say what I am going to do and to be honest, it will all come together on the night. But, you know, if I want to go and do exactly what I did in the last fight, that is enough to beat Liam. I already showed that! Whether I box his head off again, or whether I go in there and go to war, or whether I do both, you guys are going to see.”

SO WE MEET AGAIN

To his credit, Eubank Jr. was easily dominating the bout as he professed that he did to the reporters. Then, of course, Beefy was able to land the fateful right hand that changed the entire complexion of the fight. Therefore, it will be interesting to see if Eubank can recreate those successful first three rounds without the devastating curveball that was thrown in the fourth.

If he can, then Eubank Jr., ranked #5 (WBC) and #11 (WBO), will be able to put the embarrassing loss behind him. Even though, more than likely, this would result in a trilogy between the two men. On the other hand, if Smith, ranked #2 (WBO) and #3 (WBC), emerges unscathed, then he will remain directly in striking distance of another world title.

Therefore, well beyond their personal rivalry, which is tremendous, the two pugilists have a real professional interest in roughing up his opponent come fight night. So be sure to stay tuned to 3Kings Boxing for the next exciting update!
