It meant Eubank got revenge on Smith who knocked him out in the fourth round of their first fight earlier this year.

After the fight, Eubank called out Conor Benn, with the duo due to fight in October last year, but the fight was called off after Benn failed two drug tests.

Since then, Benn has been involved in this scandal, but recently he has been planning his return to the ring and Eubank could be a potential option if he is fully cleared to fight again.

Benn was at ringside to witness Eubank’s latest win and when asked about the performance, he replied, “Smith made it look good. What, you need ten rounds to knock out someone with a leg. broken? I’m not really impressed.”

Responding to Eubank’s call, Benn said, “Eubank, let’s go, there’s some pending business there.

“You could clearly see it was an injury, that’s all. 100 per cent you could tell Smith wasn’t himself. His shots weren’t hitting, he wasn’t able to deflecting shots. And that’s all it was.

“I didn’t think it was an impressive performance. If you have an injured person in there, grab them, get them out of there. If I have someone injured in front of me who can’t throw back , they do not see the end of the turn.

“He looked better than before, but that was not all. Smith made him look good tonight.

“I would put him in touch [Eubank] within four hours, I’ll put it on him right away.

Asked about a future clash with Eubank, Benn replied: “We can do it then, no problem.

“If the public wants it, then I’ll go up to 160 pounds no problem, 147 pounds, 154 pounds, 160 pounds, no problem, I’ll go up.”

Benn was then asked if he could fight Eubank before the end of the year and he replied, “100 percent”.

Benn concluded by posting on social media, “Not impressed, it’s the curtain in four rounds if you fight me at 160 pounds.”
