Chris Eubank Jr calls for Billy Joe Saunders rematch

Chris Eubank Jr calls for a rematch with Billy Joe Saunders after witnessing his rival become WBO middleweight champion with a win over Andy Lee.

Chris Eubank Jr has signalled his intent to secure a second showdown with Billy Joe Saunders after his rival won the WBO middleweight title on Saturday night.

Saunders floored Andy Lee twice during the third round on the way to a win over the Irishman by majority decision, and moments after the result was announced, Eubank took to Twitter to call out the new title holder.

Last November, Saunders handed Eubank his only defeat as a professional, before talks regarding a rematch between the two broke down earlier this year.

Eubank is currently mandatory challenger for the WBA title, which is held by Daniel Jacobs, but it appears as though he is keen to hold discussions over a rematch with Saunders.
