CHRIS EUBANK JR returns to the ring in a HUGE fight against Liam Smith to open Boxing of the Year.
The second-gen fight against Conor Benn was called off after Benn’s failed drug test, and now Eubank heads into 2023 with a tough fight.
Smith is a former world champion challenger who fought Canelo in 2016 and was on the wrong side in a decision against Jaime Munguia in 2018.
Liverpool ace Smith said: “He makes a big mistake fighting me. Every time he has fought at the highest level, he has failed. I know I’m at that level and if he goes to Manchester on January 21 I’m confident he’ll lose again.
“If he was at 60% for the fight that never happened against Conor Benn, then he has to be at 160% to be ready to take on me, a former world champion, in front of thousands of my fans up north. West.
“For Chris, this is high risk with low reward. For me it is the perfect platform to show that in 2023 I will rule the world again. He needs to be prepared for the toughest night of his career.”
