Chris Eubank jnr turns down Billy Joe Saunders' £20,000 offer not to fight

BILLY Joe Saunders has made a remarkable offer of £20,000 to his much hated opponent Chris Eubank junior not to fight this Saturday (October 25).

Triple title winning Saunders will be putting his British, Commonwealth and European belts on the line against Eubank in the blockbuster ‘Bad Blood’ show at London’s Excel Centre on November 29. Much to Saunders’ chagrin, Chris Eubank senior is insisting that his son boxes on a bill in Liverpool this weekend against journeyman Florian Wildenhof to ‘help progress his career’.

Saunders, who lives the Holwell Caravan Park on the outskirts of Hertford, is furious the fight is going ahead – a matter of weeks before the Bad Blood show, claiming Eubank jnr will use it as an excuse to pull out with an injury...

At least Eubank Jr. is keeping busy.  There was a period of six months when he was on Channel 5, when he didn't fight at all.

Got a feeling this fight falls through between now and the 29th and November.

sounds like saunders is the one more like to suffer a fight cancelling "injury"

You know what?

Bollocks to them both.  I was looking forward to this fight, as Eubank Jr. needed to step up his competition. That and it'd be funny if he lost.

But BJS has been coming out with such a bunch of shite lately, that he's actually talking more cobblers than Eubank.

I've got the hump with both of them.  I hope they knock each other out.
