Eubank: I'm a Level Above Saunders, I Want Rematch!

Chris Eubank Jr stopped Dmitry Chudinov to clinch the WBA interim middleweight title with a one-sided win – and immediately called for a rematch with Billy Joe Saunders.

Russian Chudinov entered the ring unbeaten but was taken apart by the sort of performance that will push a familair name into the equation, the fight being halted 51 seconds from the end of the 12th round.

Eubank Jr had himself urged the referee to call a halt in the 12th round and, after his first fight since losing to Saunders, he immediately claimed he is "a class above" bitter domestic rival Saunders and wants that second showdown sorted out next.

"I'm ready for redemption. I want a rematch," Eubank said on BoxNation.

"Billy Joe Saunders. I'm coming for you. I know what Billy is about, and the boxing public know that I'm a league above him. I now know I can go 12 rounds and turn up in the 12th."

[QUOTE=LacedUp;15425935]Clear and clear.. I had the fight 5-1 Saunders in the first 6 and 5-1 Eubank in the second 6. I'd be ok with 7-5 but I definitely also had the feeling that Eubank was saving energy for the later…

[QUOTE=Norm Peterson;15425504]Championship fights aren't six rounders, which is why Saunders will never be anything more than a fringe/European level fighter and will be less favoured to beat Eubank Jr as the latter gains more experience.[/QUOTE] but imo, still beats him…
