Chris Eubank Jr on Liam Smith: He slid into my DMs, he is not a happy bunny

Chris Eubank Jr and Liam Smith plan to make a spectacle. It will be a big fight, and there are already 'sparks' between the two of them. "I've said a lot to him in the build-up to this fight. I'm in his head. He even slid into my DMs a few days ago, messaging me on Instagram," Eubank said, as quoted by skysports.

"So I know I've rattled him. I just look forward to finishing off the job on the 21st." Smith looks like someone who wants to completely destroy his opponent. "I actually can't repeat a lot of the language that he used in those DMs.

But he is not a happy bunny, let's just put it that way. I think that his frustration and his anger is going to play into how the fight is going to unfold. And it's not going to play to his advantage, I know that. I sent him back a couple of little zingers.

You've got to. Who knows, maybe on fight week I'll screenshot it and post it," Eubank said.

Eubank on his opponent

Eubank respects his opponent but believes that he is still on a higher level. "I believe I'm absolutely in my peak, in my prime," Eubank said.

"There are no signs of wear and tear. There's no signs of lost hunger. I'm more motivated than ever. To keep going. To keep winning. To keep performing, to keep participating in huge fights.
"I think that there are levels to the sport, there are levels to the game, I think my highest level is going to be too much for him.

I respect him. He's done a lot in the sport of boxing over many years, as have I. But I feel like at this moment in time we're two separate animals and it's going to be too much for him on the night when that bell goes.
