Carl Froch has made his prediction for the upcoming rematch between Liam Smith and Chris Eubank Jr.
The pair first collided in January of this year with Smith scoring a TKO victory over Eubank in the fourth round of their bout.

Carl Froch speaking with talkSPORT gave his big fight assessment:
“Just based on what I saw in the first fight, I think that Liam Smith is going to come in even more confident, he’s just a more-natural all-round boxer and fighter. I just think that the experience that he has got, at the level that he has been at, I know he lost to Canelo but he has been in there with him, he’s got that boxing IQ.
Even if Eubank turns up and he is ten/fifteen percent better, which will be difficult for him because he is done at that weight now and he has still got to make 160.
For him to turn it around totally on its’ head and all of a sudden have punch resistance. I might be totally wrong, Chris Eubank might have been ill, he might have crashed the weight, he might have been on the weight for way too long.
I’m thinking that Liam Smith goes in there, it’s going to take him longer, but I think he is going to get to Eubank and he is going to demolish him again.”
