"I asked BOXXER to put a big card together for this pay-per-view rematch with Chris Eubank Jr and they more than delivered, so I'm honestly delighted that BOXXER is keeping the card together - most promoters wouldn't do that, I think," Smith said as quoted by

"I've always said a fully-fit Liam Smith beats Chris Eubank Jr every day of the week and twice on Sunday. I tried training through it because I didn't want to let anyone down but my team have decided to withdraw me following the latest medical assessment.
