This boxer is none other than the former WBO super-middleweight champ, Billy Joe Saunders. The latter has tried everything in his hands to get under Eubank Jr.’s skin until now. Also, Saunders has demanded £5million for a rematch with his fellow compatriot. But Eubank Jr. isn’t really interested in offering him the same.

Saunders and Eubank Jr. first collided in 2014 and ‘Superb’ pulled off a gratifying win to retain his undefeated stint. In this fight, he also broke his rival’s undefeated track record.

Saunders then took on some of the most challenging opponents and remained unbeaten. Unfortunately, in his last fight in May 2021, the Brit viciously lost to the P4P king, Canelo Alvarez.
