, ‘Both fighters are ready for it’ – Chris Eubank Jr’s rematch with Liam Smith to be announced NEXT WEEK

CHRIS EUBANK JR and Liam Smith are set to have their rematch announced NEXT WEEK.

Smith moved up to middleweight in January to score a shock knockout win.

Chris Eubank Jr was knocked out by Liam Smith

Eubank had a rematch clause already in his contract which guaranteed him a second bout if he decided.

And the son of a legend waited until the final moment to officially activate it, with promoter Ben Shalom ready to confirm the rematch.

He told talkSPORT: “I believe it will be announced next week.

“Both fighters are ready for it, there’s a few details to go, but we’ve got a big schedule next week and Smith vs Eubank Jr 2 will be part of that and I’m very much looking forward to it. We will get that rematch.”

Eubank, 33, was forced to look in Smith’s direction when a catchweight contest with Conor Benn, 26, was cancelled.

Benn failed two pre-fight Voluntary Anti-Doping Agency tests which saw the British Boxing Board of Control refuse to sanction the bout.

The unbeaten welterweight is still fighting to prove his innocence and did so by launching an investigation with the WBC, who work alongside VADA.

Benn was later reinstated into the WBC rankings after “no conclusive evidence” was found to prove if he had knowingly cheated.

Talks to reschedule his grudge match with Eubank have been going on behind the scenes.

But Benn still has no BBBoC license and plans to sue the board, meaning he is set to take his career abroad.

It leaves Eubank edging towards a rematch with Smith, 34, who scored two fourth-round knockdowns to win by KO.

Liam Smith won by fourth-round KO
