Chris Eubank Jr. is the son of legendary British boxer Chris Eubanks. He has been fighting professionally for over a decade and has a 32-2 record. Known for his tenacity, savagery, and high-intensity combination punching, the 33-year-old has faced big-name opponents like James DeGale, George Groves, and Billy Joe Saunders over his career.
Liam Smith comes from a British boxing dynasty as well. His three brothers, Paul, Stephen, and Callum, have all won British titles. In 2015, he won the WBO super-welterweight world championship. At a massive stadium bout in Texas the next year, he faced Mexican superstar Canelo Alvarez. Canelo stopped Smith in nine rounds with a powerful body blow.
These men are not battling for titles, but there is a sense that their professional goals are at stake. Victory for either guy might pave the door for a world championship chance, while failure could put an end to any aspirations of either boxer landing another super fight before calling it quits.
