Chris Eubank Jr vs Liam Smith: Picks & Predictions 1/21/2023

January 20, 2023



Fight Preview


A strong middleweight main event that promises a battle of styles and illustrious boxing families kicks off British boxing’s 2023 season. Naturally, Chris Eubank Jr. carries the name of his well-known father, but Liam Smith is one of four fighting brothers who have all held British titles and at the very least competed on the international stage.


Even though this bout is not for a title, it will likely determine which of the two will pursue significant titles in the future. It will determine some bragging rights on the British scene, at the very least. Once both men enter the ring, it should be a hot one with some heat in the buildup as well.


Most boxing fans will be familiar with Chris Eubank Jr. because he garnered attention by leveraging his father’s name and his own eccentric flair. But so far, it has been an interesting journey.

While he has faced out against a number of well-known figures with extensive experience, most of them (De Gale, Yildirim, and Abraham) were well past their prime due to a predisposition to choose exposure over legacy. When he did face an opponent of a categorically proven caliber at roughly the height of his powers, George Groves schooled him back in 2018.


Smith isn’t as famous or well-known, but he’s been there for a while and has faced some excellent competition. This includes a 2016 battle at 154 pounds against Canelo in which he made the p4p great work hard for his victory before KO’ing in the middle of the rounds.


Since then, he has also suffered tough defeats at the hands of the much larger Jaime Munguia and Magomed Kurbanov (which he felt, along with many observers, should have gone to him). He seemed to think that the last one was his ticket back to world-level battles, so it particularly hurt. If he can win this highly visible match, he hopes to take that next step this year after a run of three good but lower-level victories.
