, Chris Eubank Jr REGRETS not getting a brutal beating by Liam Smith as he ‘would have enjoyed it’

CHRIS EUBANK JR reckons he was robbed of a brutal battering by Liam Smith — and would have enjoyed it.

In January, the Brighton ace was demolished by Liverpool’s star in the fourth round.

Chris Eubank Jr says he was robbed from a brutal beating by the referee

For the first time in his career he was dropped and stopped. Most fans are not keen on the June 17 rematch, so convincing was the original.

But Eubank Jr, whose father Chris had a legendary chin, has been stewing over the result.

He had the option of a June 3 showdown with Conor Benn after the original October bout was cancelled.

But the stink around Benn’s ongoing Ukad doping case meant that toxic Brit battle   was shelved.

Returning slugger Eubank Jr, 33, said: “The thing I regret is not being given the chance to get through it — I wanted to continue and have the chance to overcome adversity.

“But I feel I was robbed of that challenge.  We sign up to get hurt and the possibility of punishment.

“So it just didn’t sit well with me that I wasn’t given the opportunity to recover.

“If I was due a beating, great, that’s what I deserved, I would have accepted and enjoyed it.


“I am a grizzled veteran and know how much I can take and when I can’t go on.

“A lot of people paid to see me get my a**e kicked and then they never got that, they wanted to see me take even more shots.”

No-nonsense Smith, 34, said: “You don’t need to be a genius to see he is falling over all of his words.

“Lots of people said he could have been stopped from the first knockdown.

“He got credit and the chance to carry on based on his career, he went down and got up — but he couldn’t stand up the second time.

“I think he’s finished, he was terrified of getting hit. He was always game and seemed to fancy a fight, yet from the first clinch I knew he didn’t fancy.

“I am even more determined to beat him now — and I know I can hurt him to the head and body — this time I will make him say, ‘The best man won’.

Eubank Jr insisted he was genetically gifted with an unbreakable chin and had never been hurt.

Now, however, he is going into a must-win rematch in the knowledge that he may not have inherited quite as strong a chin as his dad.

He added: “I have a new desire. A new fire that maybe I didn’t have before because I didn’t fear him.

“I don’t fear him now but I know I can be hurt and buzzed — so I have to respect what is coming at me. It will be a lot more serious now.”

How To

Here are some basic skills in boxing

How to box effectively

Boxing is the most loved sport in the world. It is made up of two competitors who aim to knock the head off each other. The rules of boxing vary from country to country. There are three types generally of boxing: Amateur (Professional) and Olympic (Olympic).

Amateur boxing is often practiced at school, college, or university. This type includes sparring sessions using padded gloves, but without protection. Amateur boxing competitions typically last for three rounds, each lasting five minutes. There are many different styles of amateur boxing including Kickboxing, Muay Thai, Taekwondo, Karate, Judo, Wrestling and others.

Professional boxing is usually practiced in gyms, clubs or stadiums. They are protected by protective equipment like a mouthpiece, nose protector, shinguards, elbow pads and knee pads, waist belt, and groin protection. Professional boxing competitions have six rounds that last four minutes each. There are several different styles of professional boxing including Boxing, MMA (Mixed Martial Arts), Kickboxing, Muay Thai, Taekwondo and others.

Olympic boxing is done at the Olympics. Special protective gear must be worn by boxers to ensure compliance with international standards. Each round lasts three minutes and is made up of eight rounds. There are only two styles of Olympic boxing; Light Flyweight and Heavyweight.

Boxing’s fundamental skills are:

  • Punching techniques
  • Guarding techniques
  • Footwork
  • Stance
  • Body movement
  • Defense
  • Combination
  • Rotation
  • Sparring

Punching Techniques

There are seven types: Left Hook (right hook), Right Hook (uppercut), Cross (cross), Straight, Overhand, Underhand. Each punch is different. Some punches require more strength than others. For example, an uppercut is a powerful punch. On the contrary, a straight punch takes less power but is faster than most punches.

There are also different combinations. These are combinations made up of several punches that can be used together to achieve one goal. A combination can contain multiple parts. For example, a left hook followed by a right cross will cause damage to the opponent’s jaw.

Guard Techniques

To defend himself from being attacked, a boxer uses his entire body. He does so by using his arms, elbows and hands as well as his knees, knees and legs.


A boxer must use his legs to defend against kicks. When he receives a kick, he raises his leg and moves away from the attacker. To avoid being kicked in the side, he bends down if the attacker attacks from the front. If the attack is from the side, he will bend his knees to avoid being kicked on the side.


Elbow strikes are very effective because they inflict much pain. An elbow strike may be delivered directly or in an indirect manner. Directly means that your opponent is hit with your forearm. However, indirectly means that your elbow strike is delivered with another part or your arm.

Boxers use both their hands and arms to prevent incoming blows. To do this, they raise their fists higher than their heads and move their arms in the direction that the attack is coming. They then touch the attackers fist.


To absorb the impact of a punch to the stomach, abdomen, or chest, boxers should bend their knees. Knee strikes are often used for defense purposes.


When attacked, a boxer should step back and deliver counter-attacks. This allows him to put distance between himself, his opponent, and the ring. A boxer must also maintain his balance when responding to an opponent’s counter-attack.


To box effectively, a boxer must establish a stance. His stance will determine how he defends. It defines where he faces his opponent and how he positions his body. There are many stances available to boxers. Here are some of the more popular ones:

  • Low stance
  • High stance
  • Southpaw stance
  • Western stance

The Body Movement

A boxer must be able to move around his opponent in order to win a fight. This means changing your speed, position and rhythm.

Boxers rotate their arms when they throw a punch. The rotation is done at different speeds depending on the type of punch.


The effectiveness of a combination depends on the timing of each individual punch. A combination is good if it starts with a strong punch then ends with a weaker one.

Spare parts

Sparring is a training session that improves boxing skills. During sparring sessions, a boxer trains his mind as well as his body. The goal of sparring is to learn to fight, and not to get hurt.

It is important to be patient and dedicated when learning how to box. To become a better boxer, you must train hard and for a long time.
