The official scorecards feature Eubank – who scored four kills on his way to victory – winning the contest 116-109, 116-108, 117-109.

But heading into the 12th, Macklin had the game much closer – scoring it 104-101 before the final three minutes.

And, despite the victory, Eubank Jr was still disappointed with Macklin’s analysis of the fight.

Speaking on TwitterHe said, “So what do you think of Saturday’s commentary?

“I’m still scratching my head with Matt Macklin’s transcript.

“I think Sky Sports Boxing needs to buy this clown a pair of glasses before he talks about boxing again or maybe it’s just jealousy blinding him.

“Either way it’s pretty shocking.”

Macklin was quick to respond to the boxer’s criticism as he justified his scorecard.

The former world champion replied: “I picked you to win and thought after the first four innings you would have the equalizer.

“I’m confused because you didn’t press the gas and are happy to be on the shore.

“In my opinion, you’ve thrown away those middle rings by doing very little!

“Looking at the part that doesn’t win the rounds, the punches that land do.”
