Chris Eubank Jr will make his long-awaited return to ring against Liam Smith this weekend in a massive middleweight fight.

Eubank Jr, 32, was set to face Conor Benn in a legacy fight towards the end of last year but the bout was scrapped after his opponent failed a drugs test.

The Brighton boxer has not been in action since beating Liam Williams by unanimous decision last February and former world champion Smith, 34, brings plenty of class to the bout.

‘Beefy’ claimed the WBO light-middleweight title and successfully defended the belt for two fights before finding Canelo Alvarez too hot to handle in 2016.

There is some history between the pair as they have differing memories of a previous sparring session – and the alleged existence of a rematch clause means this could develop into a tasty rivalry.
