Get ready for the ultimate middleweight rematch that’s been long in the making. Liam ‘Beefy’ Smith and Chris Eubank Jr are about to come to blows again, this time at Manchester’s iconic AO Arena on Saturday, September 2nd, live on ESPN+
Exclusively brought to you by Sky Sports Box Office, the pay-per-view event of SMITH vs EUBANK II: REPEAT OR REVENGE? will be another huge night of boxing. It’s been nine long months since their first breathtaking showdown and boy, has the tension been cranking up!
Let’s take a quick look back. Their first bout in January was straight-up explosive, with Smith flooring Eubank Jr with two killer knockdowns just one minute into the fourth round. Eubank Jr, stung by the referee’s intervention, was quick to call for a rematch, triggering an intense training period to ensure Smith’s victory was a one-time fluke.
The rematch was set to happen sooner but was postponed due to Smith picking up a minor injury during training. Now, fully healed and with the rivalry reaching fever pitch, we’re all set to see these fighters step into the ring once again on September 2nd.
Ben Shalom, BOXXER’s promoter and CEO, couldn’t hide his excitement about the upcoming clash, calling the Smith and Eubank Jr rivalry one of the most heated in British boxing. He expects the tickets to be snapped up in no time as fans wouldn’t want to miss being ringside for this epic encounter.
Wasserman Boxing’s Global Head of Boxing, Kalle Sauerland, chimed in with a bold prediction: “Chris is going to deliver an electric performance.”
The event is in collaboration with official partners bet365, WOW HYDRATE, Everlast, and Village Hotels. Tickets for this once-in-a-lifetime showdown at the AO Arena in Manchester will be available starting Tuesday, July 25th.
