Chris Eubank Jr has sent a chilling warning to Conor Benn as their historic showdown edges closer to being re-booked.

The Battle of Britain

The duo were due to throw down in an iconic family grudge match last October before a pair of failed drug tests for Benn scuppered the mouthwatering showdown.

Negotiations back on

Negotiations over the Battle of Britain resumed after Benn made a successful return to the ring against Rodolfo Orzoco in September.

SunSport understands talks are close to bearing fruit, with a spring punch-up on the brink of being finalized.

Trash talk on social media

And after getting wind of some social media trash talk from Benn – the son of British boxing great Nigel Benn – Eubank Jr issued the welterweight contender a blunt warning.

He wrote on X (formerly Twitter): "DEAD MAN WALKING."

The jibe from Eubank Jr – the son of former WBO super-middleweight champion Chris Eubank Sr – was in response to Benn vowing to become only the second man to stop Next Gen.

He wrote: "I can't wait to punch you in the head @ChrisEubankJr."

Failed drug tests

The mouthwatering domestic dust-up between Eubank Jr and Benn fell by the wayside after the latter tested positive for the banned fertility drug clomiphene – which can elevate testosterone levels in men.

Benn was cleared of intentionally ingesting the prohibited substance by the National Anti-Doping Panel but both UK Anti-Doping and the British Boxing Board of Control appealed the decision.

Re-booking the clash

That has prompted promoter Eddie Hearn to press on with plans to re-book his clash with Eubank Jr.

February 3 is the working date for the fight, which The Daily Mail claims will take place at the Tottenham Hotspur Stadium.

And the undefeated Benn appeared to confirm that is indeed the date for the biggest fight of his career in his ongoing social media spat with Eubank Jr.

In response to Eubank Jr's "dead man" tweet, The Destroyer wrote: "I'll remind you of this when you are being scraped up off the f***ing canvas.

"Feb 3, I'm ending your career."
