Young middleweight stars Billy Joe Saunders and Chris Eubank Jr will meet on the undercard of the Tyson Fury-Dereck Chisora bout on November 29.

The undefeated rivals have swapped insults over the last couple of years and will now get the chance to sort out their differences in the ring.

Saunders will be defending his European title for the first time against Eubank Jnr, after taking it from Italian fighter Emanuele Blandamura in July, and he will be looking to improve his record to 21-0.

Eubank Jnr has been equally impressive in his professional career so far, knocking out 12 of his 17 opponents including the last nine, but Saunders will represent his toughest test so far.

The son of the legendary Chris Eubank has been training alongside Floyd Mayweather in Las Vegas.


Promoter Frank Warren said: "This is a fabulous fight between two undefeated British fighters and it has all the ingredients to be a thriller.

"Both men have wanted the fight and I'm delighted that it's going to be on the same show as another big domestic feud between Chisora v Fury.

"Saunders has done everything asked of him so far winning British, Commonwealth, WBO Intercontinental, and European titles and as he's shown, the better the opponent the better he performs. This will certainly be the case against the young Eubank Jnr and he'll take his game to another level. 

"While it was unfortunate that Saunders missed out on a shot at the WBO World title recently, I'll be applying to the WBO for this fight to be made an eliminator for the World title."
