Eubank added on BoxNation: "Hopefully we can do a rematch ASAP - I felt like I won the fight."

"I’ll be back in the gym tomorrow this isn’t the end," he said. "I’m coming for the British (title) again, hopefully we can do a rematch. I felt like I won the fight, but congratulations to him.

"He did what I thought he would do, boxed to the plan, early rounds came out strong. I felt like I overtook him, but the judges made their decision. I’ll be back."
