Chris Eubank Jr Preview – ‘Next Gen’ can land the win

This is such a big opportunity for Chris Eubank Jr to make his way up the ladder once again.

In the two biggest fights of his career so far, he has come up a little short.

The first defeat happened against Billy Joe Saunders in 2014, the first big title shot for Eubank Jr.

After rebuilding and moving up to super-middleweight, Eubank Jr’s second career defeat came in a huge showdown with George Groves.

That 2018 defeat left Eubank Jr with a lot of work to do to get back into a position of earning a title.

But after moving back to middleweight since that loss to Groves, Eubank Jr has won his last five fights.

In boxing betting outright, Eubank Jr is the 3/10 odds-on favourite to win* (odds recorded 19:12 GMT on February 2nd, 2022).

The weekend’s fight is at the Motorpoint Arena, Cardiff, so in the backyard of his opponent.

But after getting some training help from Roy Jones Jr, Eubank Jr looks to be in the shape of his life.

Our betting prediction:
Eubank Jr 7-12 Round Group Betting

Bet at William Hill

* (odds recorded 19:12 GMT on February 2nd, 2022)


Eubank Jr has maintained his career record of having never been stopped in a fight.

He lost on a split decision against Saunders, and a unanimous decision against Groves.

There have been points through his career, where Eubank Jr has unleashed some superb uppercuts.

But he has only picked up one knockout in his last five victories.

A Eubank Jr on points boxing betting pick is at 13/8* (odds recorded 19:12 GMT on February 2nd, 2022).

The career record for Eubank Jr is 31-2-0, with 23 of his victories have come by a KO.


Liam Williams Preview – Williams looks for redemption

Welsh fighter Liam Williams missed his big title shot when he stepped into the ring last April.

He was up against American Demetrius Andrade for the WBO middleweight title.

Williams was never in the fight and ended up being schooled by Andrade.

There’s no disgrace in that at all, but it leaves Williams in a precious position moving forward.

Williams was on a seven-fight winning streak before that.

During that run, he won the vacant British middleweight title which he made a couple of successful defences of.

The career record for Williams is 23-3-1 from his 27 bouts.

‘The Machine’ is the 5/2 underdog in boxing betting for the weekend’s big bout* (odds recorded 19:12 GMT on February 2nd, 2022)

Because of a shoulder injury and other scheduling issues, this fight had to get rescheduled twice before it will finally happen on the weekend.

It has been a long time coming.

Chris Eubank Jr vs Liam Williams Betting Advice

Key Facts – Chris Eubank Jr vs Liam Williams Betting Tip

  • Chris Eubank Jr has won his last five fights
  • Chris Eubank Jr is 31-2 in his professional career, and has never been stopped
  • Liam Williams is 23-2-1 in his pro boxing career


Williams, who is a little more mobile than his opponent, will probably come out and look for a quick start.

The Eubank Jr Round 7-12 in Round Group Betting may just be worth a poke at 3/1 in case Eubank Jr gets in close against a tired opponent* (odds recorded 19:12 GMT on February 2nd, 2022).
