    Bank statements

    Things got spicy between Eubank and Smith in their Instagram DMs as the fighting talk ensued behind the scenes.

    Eubank mocked Smith by claiming he is getting "cooked" in the ring, like the steak he was preparing to eat.

    And it sparked a furious war-of-words between the two.

    Will I never

    Tonight's fight has divided opinions across the boxing world.

    But one man in the perfect position to predict the bout is Liam Williams, having shared the ring with BOTH.

    He was twice beaten by Smith in 2017 and in February 2022 was dropped four times in a points loss to Eubank.

    Interestingly, Williams backed Smith to come out victorious in the Sky Box Office bout in Manchester.

    He said: "I think Smith is going to win. I think it's going to be a great fight nevertheless but I think it's a Smith points win for me."

    Summertime brawl

    Tonight's winner between Eubank and Smith are in line for a blockbuster summer fight – but the loser faces an uncertain future.

    Ben Shalom said: "Both of them want to fight again in the summer. "This a springboard to massive fights in 2023.

    "But this is the one they're both focused on. Were Chris to lose this, it really will be difficult to come back from and Liam the same."

    Kell of a plan

    Kell Brook will be ringside to watch Chris Eubank Jr's fight with Liam Smith – because he is "desperate" for the winner.

    Brook walked away on top after stopping long-time rival Amir Khan in six rounds last February.

    But the former IBF welterweight world champion has struggled to avoid the temptation of a comeback.

    Brook's intrigue will bring him to Manchester on Saturday, the scene of the crime for his retirement fight.

    Promoter Ben Shalom told Sky Sports: "Kell will be there on Saturday.

    "He's desperate for the winner of that fight. He wanted the Eubank fight after the Khan fight.

    "He feels he wants the winner of this fight whether that's Liam Smith or whether that's Eubank Jr.

    "There is a rematch clause, so if Liam does win Eubank will have the option with that one.

    "But there'll be massive fights for whoever the winner is. Huge nights and Kell Brook definitely wants to be one of them."
