Chris Eubank Sr: In Five Fights, We Want James DeGale

Rising middleweight star Chris Eubank Jr performed in flashes to gain a points victory over former Commonwealth champion Bradley Pryce in Belfast a few days ago. With his father looking on from ringside, the 23-year-old was far from faultless but was awarded the referee's decision 80-73 - a margin that was harsh on 31-year-old Pryce.

Eubank Jr said afterwards: "Every time I come out here, I want to prove to the fans and make a statement that I'm the real deal. This isn't a joke. It isn't a gimmick. Sure I could go out there looking for the knockout and throw haymakers in the first and second rounds, but I don't want to do that - I want to learn and get the rounds under my belt."

Eubank Senior added: "The fellow (Pryce) had 33 wins and from Christopher's viewpoint, in another five fights he's going to be speaking only about James DeGale."

Gets hit too much for me. Pryce was getting to him and he wobbled him a couple of times. DeGale would beat him.

Billy Joe Saunders would tear this kid a new arsehole.

It always makes me chuckle when relatively new fighters are name dropping opponents they want 5 fights down the line.
