Chris Eubank Jr and Liam Smith will meet at the AO Arena, Manchester on Saturday night with both men hoping to pick up the win and make a big jump up the rankings. 

Eubank has been absent from the ring since February 2022, with this scheduled fight against Conor Benn, in October, cancelled after Benn failed a drug test. Whilst Benn continues to fight to clear his name, Eubank will take to the ring looking for his 33rd career win
