Former super middleweight world champion Callum Smith believes Chris Eubank Jr. is too much talk and not enough action.

Both boxers were involved in the 2018 World Boxing Super Series tournament.

Eubank thought he was on his way to face Smith in the final round - but he was defeated by George Groves.

Groves was then knocked out by Smith, who won the entire tournament.

Eubank eventually moved back down in weight and is currently the WBA's interim-champion at the middleweight limit of 160.

While Smith admits Eubank is a talented fighter, he also feels that talkative Brit falls short when it comes to the bigger opportunities.

"He can get in the mix because his name always brings a lot," Smith told Sky Sports.

"He carries his dad's name so he has a big profile. He talks a good fight so will always talk himself into big fights. But as we've seen in the Billy Joe Saunders fight [when Eubank Jr lost his unbeaten record in 2014] and the Groves fight, when he steps up to the highest level his lack of boxing ability seems to let him down. He is very fit, athletic, strong. He's a better middleweight than he is a super-middleweight.

"But at the very top level he lacks the natural ability to beat the top guys. He will always be in a position to be in those fights. But I don't see him beating any of the top ones."

Eubank has bounced around with several promoters over the years. He worked with Frank Warren, Eddie Hearn - and most recently he signed a new agreement with Team Sauerland.

They plan to relaunch his career in the UK and their main target appears to be IBF middleweight world champion Gennadiy Golovkin.
