Eubank Jr. Opens Up On His Development – ‘Take All The Percentages You Can Get’

Chris Eubank Jr. was very vocal about the lessons he had learned following his victory over Liam Smith

Eubank avenged the loss he suffered the first time round by stopping Smith in the tenth round, as he dropped his opponent twice in the fight. The difference in the rematch included a change in his training regime. The departure of Roy Jones Jr. was accompanied by the appointment of Terence Crawford’s trainer, Brian McIntyre, which worked a treat. Meanwhile, a new training set-up was accompanied by a new nutritionist. 

In addition, Eubank appeared more focused as he dismissed the idea of being anything other than his best, unlike the claim that he only needed to be 50 percent in the first fight to beat Smith. And it was those small margins that stood Eubank in good stead. 

“They all had percentages. What I’ve learned over the years, you have to take all the percentages you can get. There are some tough, tough men out there. They have all hands on deck. If you don’t have the same, you’re at a disadvantage. We’re not doing that anymore,” Eubank

That mentality is vital if Eubank has aspirations of securing bigger wins in what would be a rejuvenated career. After the Smith victory, Eubank was clear about facing GGG and Conor Benn later down the line. And if he can replicate the performance he put in against Smith, then there is no reason why he cannot have a shot at winning those fights.
