Middleweight Liam Smith has further postponed his rematch with bitter rival Chris Eubank Jr in order to recover from a minor but nagging injury which has dogged his training camp. After their fight in January, the rematch was originally slated for June 17, then postponed to July 1. A new date for the rescheduled Smith-Eubank II bout will be announced shortly.
The July 1 BOXXER card at the AO Arena in Manchester, England, will now be headlined by Savannah Marshall (12-1, 10 KOs) moving up to challenge undisputed women’s super middleweight champion Franchon Crews-Dezurn (8-1, 2 KOs). Every fan in the arena in July 1 will receive a free food and beverage voucher – plus priority access and discount for rescheduled Smith vs Eubank II event.
Eubanks should retire, he messed up a promising career by his arrogance and messing around. He finally buried it by getting together with the worst trainer in boxing, Roy Jones.
He’s 33 years old (32-3 record). He’s not a spring chicken but “retire” is a bit overkill. He still has a few more miles left. After all he has to pay the bills.
Marshall is going to beat the living you know what out of Dezurn, and I am going to ENJOY it.
I’m curious as to why…LeKaren…please elaborate.
do fans in the UK really care about this?
