Chris Eubank Jr is ‘Considering options’ as Smith’s rematch deadline looms

Chris Eubank Jr’s promoter, Kalle Sauerland, has indicated that a rematch with Liam Smith will take place, but admits it may not be the next one.

The Brighton boxer suffered his first defeat in Manchester by Liam Smith in the UK’s first major domestic show of the calendar year.

Eubank was knocked down by a barrage of hooks and hooks, and was completely on his feet when he passed the count. The second takedown ended the contest in the fourth round.

Despite Eubank’s post-match sentiment that he would soon be back in the ring with Smith, Sauerland has said a decision has not yet been made and options are being considered. He explained to Sports sky.

“I told Ben [Shalom] We will use the full time to review our options. We don’t have a lot of communication about it, and we’re certainly not giving any indication that we’re going to implement the rematch clause. Is it an interesting option? Absolute. But is it the best option? We have a few more weeks to think.

“A hasty decision in boxing is the worst decision ever. It’s all about when it makes sense. In the end, it must be the right move for Junior. He is also at an important stage in his career. Yes, it’s a failure, it’s a big failure when you lose a big battle. But is that an obstacle he can return to? Absolute. That’s the interesting thing about boxing.”

“It would be different if it was a one-sided knockdown. Not so. Chris gained a round on my card.
