Benn tells Eubank Jr ‘it’s a good job you didn’t fight me’ after Liam Smith KO

Conor Benn has told Chris Eubank Jnr that he's lucky their fight didn't go ahead after watching Liam Smith defeat his rival.

Smith caused a major upset on Saturday night when he KO'd Eubank Jnr in the fourth round at the Manchester Arena. It was an impressive debut for Smith who was making his debut at 160lbs, the same size as Eubank Jnr, in the middleweight division after conquering the light-middleweight category.

But initially it was Benn who was meant to fight Eubank Jnr in October last year before the former failed a drugs test, leading to Smith being roped in as his replacement. And after witnessing Smith's heroics, Benn concluded that he would've made light work of Eubank Jnr in just two rounds.

Benn used a clip of Prince Naseem Hamed urging Eubank Jnr to quit following his loss to George Groves in 2018 to make his point whilst taunting his bitter foe. Alongside the clip shared on Twitter, Benn scoffed as he goaded Eubank Jnr's weight: "Oh man, @chriseubankjr, it’s a good job you didn’t fight me. You’d last two rounds at 160."

Benn was in a buoyant mood after watching his adversary crumble, and proceeded to share his exuberance on Instagram with his dad Nigel to confirm his two-round prediction.

In the video, Benn proclaimed to his father whilst laughing and bouncing around the room: "What you saying dad? Wouldn't have gone past two would it," prompting boxing legend Nigel to giggle and bump his fist in the air in response to his confident son.

But Benn will have to wait to see if will be reinstated to the WBC rankings before he can get in the ring with Eubank Jnr. The shamed fighter was stripped of his No5 ranking in the division following his failed drugs test, and is awaiting a decision on his future from the WBC organization.
