Chris Eubank Jr has announced that he has activated his rematch clause to face Liam Smith again.
The 33-year-old was beaten by Smith in their middleweight grudge match in Manchester last month, which was overshadowed by unpleasant exchanges during the final pre-fight press conference.
After being backed into the corner in the fourth round, Eubank Jr managed to get back up from a left uppercut and hook combination, but went back down again when Smith landed a right-hand shot.
Referee Victor Loughlin stepped in to stop the fight, handing Smith a fourth straight win, but Eubank Jr confirmed on Twitter that he wants the rematch.
He posted: “This morning I activated the rematch clause via my lawyers & sent to my promoters @Wasserman.
“Happy Valentines Day @LiamBeefySmith.”
