Middleweight contender Chris Eubank Jr. has made it clear that his domestic rival, former two division champion Billy Joe Saunders, is in no position to make monetary demands.

He says Saunders is requesting £5 million for a rematch.

The two fighters faced each other in November 2014, with Saunders winning a close twelve round decision to hand Eubank Jr. his first career defeat.

The two sides have tried to come together for a rematch over the years, with the fighters being unable to reach a deal.

Saunders was in action back in May, when he suffered a stoppage loss at the hands of Saul 'Canelo' Alvarez in their super middleweight unification.

Eubank is back in the ring next month, when he takes on Sven Elbir at Wembley Arena.

The twice-beaten boxer is still interested in facing Saunders, but wants his heated rival to lower his asking price.

"I heard him say he's demanding £5 million. The funny thing is he's not in a position to be demanding anything, he has no belt, he has no credibility in the sport after quitting against Saul ‘Canelo’ Alvarez after saying he’d die before taking a knee in the ring," Eubank told Talk Sport.

"He lambasted Daniel Dubois after an eye injury, a real eye injury. There was nothing wrong with Saunders, he got a blackeye but there was no smashed orbital bone, there was no broken eye socket, there was no proof of that - that was all a sham. That's why he's been MIA [absent from boxing] for the last few months because of the shame in what he did.

"He has no credibility, he has no power in the sport so he can't be saying he wants £5 million, he'll get what he’s given. I'm the A-side and once he understands that we can talk."
