Photos: Saunders, Eubank Jr. Shine in Manchester

Manchester, Phone 4U Arena - It wasn't an easy night for the new European middleweight champion Billy Joe Saunders (20-0, 11 KOs) but the ending was really satisfactory, when Saunders stopped previously undefeated Italian Emanuele Blandamura (22-1, 5 KOs) with two seconds remaining in the eighth round in what was a toss-up bout before that.

------------------

Chris Eubank Jr. (17-0, 12 KOs), accompanied by his legendary father, made very short work of Croatian journeyman Ivan Jukic (19-3, 12 KOs) by annihilating him within a round. Eubank immediately jumped on Jukic throwing his usual bravado out of the window in order to score a quick kayo and he did just that. Jukic was soon cornered, and Eubank Jr. landed a number of uppercuts and left hands, finally sending him down. The Croatian got up only to be sent down again seconds later. Official time of stoppage was 2:40.

Eubank jr shouldnt fight saunders cause he's not ready, Warren probably thinks he can make that fight and give saunders the advantages of having experience. Hopefuly he's not naive enough to be used by Warren like that.
