Frank has apparently made an offer.

Billy and Dominic have both been talking about Chris all week.

His fight will be announced on Monday... Any chance this is happening.

Personally if I was managing Chris I'd be targeting Dirrell but money talks and a number of Journalists have mentioned that Eubank Snr wants his son to avenge that loss.

We know the Eubanks speak a lot of nonsense, but Jr said recently he wont fight Saunders again as he's a drug cheat.

Take it with as much salt as you deem appropriate.

I have no doubt Frank's pushing for the fight. There's little else out there for BJS that is viable right now, and the Eubank Jr. bout would land Warren another PPV show.
That's what I was thinking and decent revenue would be made which would allow him to pay Eubank well.

Eubank Jr should go for Dirrell first to get that belt, Dirrell is a loss waiting to happen, the Saunders fight is going anywhere yet

Cant see him and his Dad disagreeing too much on the opponent though Grant. Im sure they will have discussed this in private, and IM sure Junior wants revenge.
Id usually prefer them to go on parallel lines and meet later on, but if they met next, obviously after BJS has HIS fight,Id be very happy with that. Only thing is theres men in the super middleweight division capable of beating either, so I think id prefer it to happen now. Winner moves on.

Ive been saying the loss waiting to happen about Dirrell for a long time now, along with the worst brother of the two. But he keeps getting the win. The other guy,Plant,looks pretty decent also. No guarantees either Junior or BJS at the higher weight, beat either. Then you've got Ramirez,Callum and a few more. Its not as easy a division as some are saying I suspect.

Plant is a beast he would school Dirrell and Eubank, but true say he gassed quite bad against Uzcategui, not sure Eubank can compete with people the size of Plant and Smith

Ive only seen Plant that one time ACS. Was surprised how good he is actually. Wouldn't describe him so much as a beast, more a slick boxer with bags of physical and mental toughness. Kind of an orthodox version of Saunders.
I really think BJS should have stayed at middle, though he's good enough to prove me wrong. All that talk of nutrition since he moved to Sheffield and now he's moving up. Is he big enough?? I don't think he's as naturally big as Eubank,certainly didn't look it when they boxed. I wouldn't have actually put money on anybody beating him at middle, not sure at the weight above.
More chance of Eubank growing into the weight I think, though he lacks the skill of Saunders. But I like that fight for starters and could see it happening, never mind the crap about drugs. Its good for the trash talk .

Saunders moving up must just be because he cant get big fights at MW because they are all with DAZN, Saunders is a beast at MW but at 168 he will struggle, i wish Saunders vs Andrade happenes I think Saunders wouls have stopped him and shown how good he is and got one of the big dogs

Bad move for Billy. #3 middleweight, very unlikely to become the best super middle on that side of the road.

He’s made a lot of money though so fair play.

Don't think Eubank will ever fight Saunders again to be honest. He doesn't get enough credit for that performance by the way. Never been in with anyone remotely on the level of Saunders (unless you count the journeyman version of Bradley Pryce) and pushed Saunders really hard. Didn't do anything in the first 4 or 5 rounds either. People can bang on all they want about how Saunders didn't prepare properly and all that shit but that lies squarely on Saunders shoulders.

Not sure I agree he can't get fights ACS. Could be down to doesn't want to make the weight. Hope not. But it stands to reason he won't have the same success at super middle. I think Eubank would have a slight advantage there as I see him as naturally bigger.
If BJS got more active at middle I'm sure the fights would have come and who knows how far he could have got??

True he didn't get enough credit. I thought he well won the fight, hit Eubank with a punch that would have stopped most. And I also thought he was in good condition, the commentator said as much. I wouldn't put money on ANY current middle beating Saunders in the same shape. The weight above may well be a different matter.
And I don't share your doubts about a return. You could be right, but you could be wrong. Its a hell of a fight. Repeat or revenge. But much bigger than Cleverly/Bellew.

Reports that Saunders and Ingle have split and Saunders is with Davison.

Why would he leave someone who brought him on so well?

Hearn has GGG, Canelo, Jacobs, Golovkin and Andrade, Al Haymon has Charlo if Saunders wants to make a fight with them hes going to have to change network as hes not mandatory anymore no one needs to fight him
