Billy Saunders believes his narrow win over Chris Eubank Jr has settled their feud



Last Updated: 30/11/14 4:25pm
A war of words raged between the two middleweights ahead of Saturday's enthralling clash, which saw Saunders edge the early rounds with his work rate before Eubank Jr staged a determined late assault.

One judge rewarded the Brighton man's efforts with a score of 116-113, but the two remaining judges handed tallies of 115-114 and 115-113 to the champion, who celebrated with British, Commonwealth and European belts at London’s ExCel Arena.

"All grudge matches are big fights," said Saunders. "Whoever loses they have to shut up. After all the talking up, he's lost so he has to shut his mouth, get to the back of the queue now and fight whoever he wants. That's done."

Soon changed his tune. He offered Eubank first defence if he won the title last night.

True - if he had scored a wide UD then maybe, but the fact is it was a close fight with one judge awarding the fight to Eubank. Also, the general consensus is that Saunders fought the best he could, whereas Eubank could have done much better if he had started better and not thrown the first 4 or 5 rounds away. Definitely these two need a rematch.

agreed, saunders, for all his experience and world title plans, got pushed to a SD by a relative novice who was taking a big step up in class. i see eubank winning a rematch fairly clearly
