The final press conference before the big rematch between British boxing stars Liam Smith and Chris Eubank Jr. will take place on Thursday and will be lived streamed on YouTube.
Liam Smith shocked the Eubank Jr. when he stopped him in the fourth round of their first meeting on January 21, 2023.
Eubank Jr. decided to take a fight with Smith since his fight with Conor Benn fell through over failed drug tests, and to stay active while Benn was serving a suspension he took the Smith fight.
Smith warned Eubank Jr. not to overlook him because he will go for the knockout, and he did just that and capitalized on the overconfident Eubank Jr.
The rematch will also be contested at middleweight and Eubank Jr. had trouble cutting down in weight and that could have weakened his punch resistance heading into the fight, but he assured fans that he had no issue with weight this time around and will be in top form.
The two fighters and their teams will share the podium at the pre-fight press conference on Thursday and give their final thoughts heading into Saturday’s anticipated rematch at the AO Arena in Manchester, England.
