- Eubank avenges humiliating loss in Manchester in January
- Smith knocked down twice before referee calls end to fight
Chris Eubank Jr overwhelmed Liam Smith, knocking down his bitter rival twice before the fight was waved over mercifully in the tenth round in Manchester on Saturday night, as he avenged the humiliating defeat he had suffered early this year.
Smith had dropped and stopped him in four rounds in January and posed serious questions about Eubank Jr’s boxing future. Another loss would have been calamitous for the 33-year-old middleweight from Brighton but this brutally authoritative victory offered Eubank Jr the sweet taste of redemption.
