CHRIS EUBANK JR vs Liam Smith is signed and sealed for January 21 in Manchester.
The middleweight rivals will clash on a Sky Sports show almost four months after Eubank Jr’s clash with Conor Benn was cancelled, just three days out from the mega-money clash.
But the 33-year-old can make up for that hit in the pocket by getting his hands on his 34-year-old Liverpool rival, who has repeatedly dismissed the Brighton man’s ability.
Smith – from the famous fighting family that includes Paul, Callum and Stephen – said: “He’s making a big mistake fighting me.
“Every time he has stepped up to elite level, he has failed.
“I am elite and he will fall again on January 21st in Manchester.
“If he was at 60 per cent for the fight that never was against Conor Benn, then he’ll need to be at 160 per cent to be ready to face me, a former world champion, in front of thousands of my fans in the North-West.
“For Chris this is a high-risk, low-reward.
“For me, it’s the perfect platform to show I will rule the world again in 2023. “
But Eubank Jr reckons he’s “twice” as good as Smith.

He said: “He has he been in there with some good fighters. Are they on my level? No.
” He’s a competent fighter but class beats competence every day of the week.
“It’s a good opportunity for me to show I’m twice the fighter that he is as well as those he has faced.
“Manchester is an iconic sporting city. It has hosted many legendary fight nights and many memorable fighters have been born there.
“It’ll be a great performance and the Eubank name will hopefully become a regular feature whenever the boxing history of Manchester is discussed.”
