Liam Smith stuns Chris Eubank Jr with an incredible KO

Chris Eubank Jr against Liam Smith was a pick – and those who picked Smith were right.

The Manchester crowd was right behind ‘Beefy’, his beltwalk continuing through chants as Eubank’s shadow enveloped the bowels of the building.

Round 1-3 is close and exploratory. Eubank focused on his stab and it started to work in the third round. Smith, after all the talk about being a smaller man, etc., didn’t want to take a step back. He was happy to feed the jab to try and land his own.

The fourth round is quite unbelievable. A series of hits – including a perfect header on the court – was taken down for the first time in his professional career, Eubank Jr. Not only did he fall, but he was also cornered. When he’s standing, he jumps from side to side of the ring, but not like we usually do. The legs weren’t there, and Smith knocked him down again quickly.

Referee Victor Loughlin waved his hand, absolutely correct. Eubank was so stunned that he thought the war was still going on. The pair shook hands as Junior regained his composure and the setback settled. In recognition of the great merit, he congratulated Smith in front of the crowd, and the couple left them behind. As of writing, it is unclear whether he will call for a rematch, which is his right.

Eubank Jr’s chin – and confidence – has officially cracked, and the man who did it has told us he can do it all.
