Chris Eubank Jr lands huge cash windfall after betting on Canelo Alvarez to stop Saunders before calling out P4P star

CHRIS EUBANK JR landed a huge cash windfall after betting on Canelo Alvarez to stop Billy Joe Saunders – then called out the unified champ.

The British middleweight star stuck £10,000 on the Mexican to win the fight before it went the full 12 rounds.

Eubank put his money where his mouth was with the £10,000 stake and promised the winnings to charity

And with odds of evens, he doubled his money when Saunders quit from his stool after the eighth.

Now a charity of his choice is on course for a bumper donation with Eubank promising to give the winnings away to a good cause.

The 31-year-old Sussex man had already tweeted a picture of the betting slip with William Hill.

And after Canelo ripped the WBO super-middleweight belt from Saunders, Eubank was quick to jump back on to social media.

He tweeted a series of laughing and money emojis.

And then wrote: “Canelo if you want a Brit to give you a real fight… I’m ready & waiting.”

Eubank lost to BJS in a split decision way back in 2014 – his first pro defeat.

And there is clearly no love lost nearly seven years on.


In a video shared on his Instagram story, Eubank was filmed laughing at Saunders as he suffered in his corner.

Wearing a cap, t-shirt and jeans, the 30-2 fighter labelled ‘Superb’ a ‘wet bag’.

He then told the camera: “Give me the ten grand, baby, give me the ten grand.”

Before the Canelo-Saunders fight, Eubank tweeted a picture of him smirking and captioned it: “When someone says Saunders has a chance against Canelo….” followed by a laughing face.

And he was proved right when Canelo brutally dispatched Saunders in Texas.

The Brit was looking impressive before he was crunched with a trademark uppercut from his rival which broke his eye socket forcing him to throw the towel in.

Saunders was rushed to hospital as Canelo – ahead on all three scorecards at the time of the stoppage – celebrated his victory.

Eubank returned to the ring earlier in May after 17 months with a unanimous-decision win over Marcus Morrison in Manchester.

And now he is clearly eyeing a big step up by challenging the WBA, WBC, WBO and The Ring super-middleweight king.
