One of the most anticipated rematch between Liam Smith and Chris Eubank is set for this summer.
According to the latest reports, Liam Smith and Chris Eubank will square off once again at the same AO Arena in Manchester on June 17, 2023.
After a lot of weeks of buildup, Smith vs Eubank took place on January 21 earlier this year. Both these fighters were in a rush and were landing heavy strikes, and then finally in the fourth round, Liam Smith knocked out Chris Eubank.
However, Eubank’s side claimed that one knockdown took place due to an illegal elbow. Smith didn’t like the fact that Eubank just couldn’t agree that he was not the better man that night.
The seeds for the rematch were sown then and there, and now Liam Smith vs Chris Eubank II will take place on June 17 at the AO Arena. This bout is expected to be even more intense than the first one.
The former WBO middleweight champion Liam Smith is on a four-fight winning streak and snapped Chris Eubank’s six fights winning streak earlier this year. Now, it will be interesting to see whether Eubank will be able to take revenge or not.
