David Haney says Chris Eubank Jr can’t afford to overlook the threat that Liam Smith will bring to the ring this Saturday because this is a fight that he needs to be 100% to win. I know people thought it was the [Conor] Benn fight, but this is a significantly tougher fight,” said David Haye to iFL TV about Saturday’s Chris Eubank Jr vs. Liam Smith fight in Manchester, England. It is a tougher fight for Eubank Jr going up against Liam Smith than the unproven welterweight contender Conor Benn, who has never faced anyone remotely good enough to gauge whether he has any ability. “If he’s gay, I’m gay. He’s about as gay as I am,” said Haye when asked if Eubank Jr is gay.2 months ago Boxing News 24/7
Trailing on two of the judges’ scorecards, Cuban heavyweight Lenier Peró stunned Ukraine’s Viktor Faust with a hard right to the body followed with a left hand that rendered Faust defenseless and out on his feet in the eighth round. It was a stunning turn of events, as Faust was controlling the action with his long jab and hard, thudding right hands until the final moments. “After the 6th round, I had pain in my ribs, but I decided to continue the fight,” said Faust. Faust has now lost to both Peró brothers as Faust was also defeated by his younger brother Dainier in the amateurs. “It was a very difficult fight,” Peró said in the ring afterward.1 month ago Boxing News 24/7
