Eubank Warns Saunders: I'm willing to die for my record!

Bitter rivals Billy Joe Saunders and Chris Eubank Jr came head-to-head for the first time on Monday ahead of their Battle of Britain in London this weekend.

The pair collide with Saunders’ British, Commonwealth and European middleweight titles on the line, which also doubles up as a WBO world title final eliminator, live and exclusive on BoxNation.

Saunders had previously been snubbed three times at press conferences by the Brighton prospect, but Eubank Jr made a solo appearance on Monday with no entourage, showing that he’s ready to take on the unbeaten Hatfield ace.

“Fair play to Eubank, he’s come here alone without his dad holding his hand.  He’s says he deal with me in 6 or 7 rounds so we’ll see on Saturday night if he’s talking his usual bull,” said Saunders.

“He’s faced nobody in his career - when you read down his record is there a name that you can pronounce? I’m the first name that you can say.  I’m not some unknown from Latvia.

Eubank Jr fired back by saying: “I'm willing to die to defend my record. I’m here, I came alone. I don’t need anybody to deal with the likes of an average Joe like Billy Joe Saunders,”

“I told my dad to stay at home, put his feet up and let me come down here for an hour to listen to what average Joe has to say. Now that my training is done and I’ve got some time to wind down, I’ll see what he has to say.

“Let’s remember, he’s the champion holding the belts, yet he’s the one calling me out ... shouldn’t it be the other way round? He’s just holding those belts for me, keeping them warm until Saturday night when I take them off him.

“All I’ll say to him is that he’s swimming with a shark and if he’s doing that he’d better be able to swim very fast.”
