This fight sees Smith trying to work his way back to the top of the boxing world. On the other end of things, Eubank Jr looks to preserve his spot as a top-five fighter in his weight category and continue his rise.

Chris Eubank Jr’s Betting Outlook vs Smith

Eubank Jr returns after close to a year out of action following a targeted October clash with Conor Benn falling by the wayside due to Benn’s failed drug tests.

Things worked out though as Eubank Jr and Smith have been bitter rivals for a little while now. The day of judgment looms as we head into this weekend’s throwdown.

The son of the acclaimed Chris Eubank has very much carved out his own legacy and Junior is now regarded as one of the world’s best boxers at 160 pounds.

He is riding a six-fight winning streak following a 2018 loss and is eyeing possible fights against names like Canelo Alvarez and Gennady Golovkin down the line.

Eubank Jr has previously commented himself as the two-time WBA interim middleweight champion and the IBO super middleweight champion.

This middleweight matchup pits a surging contender in Eubank Jr against an established veteran in Smith.

Liam Smith’s Betting Outlook vs Eubank Jr

Smith is a former belt holder at 154 pounds (WBO super welterweight champion) and has previously taken on names like Canelo Alvarez.

He has characterized Eubank Jr as someone who has fallen short when taking that step up in competition and Smith sees himself as being at that elite tier.

Eubank Jr has a superior finishing rate to ‘Beefy’ but conversely, Smith has a few more years of pro experience.

This is a true crossroads fight for both as each pugilist has a lot to prove.
