Chris Eubank Jr vs Liam Smith: Date, UK start time, TV channel, live stream, PPV price, undercard | The Sun

CHRIS EUBANK JR returns to the ring in a HUGE clash against Liam Smith to open up the year's boxing.

The second generational bout against Conor Benn was called off after Benn's failed drugs test, and now Eubank kicks off 2023 with a tough contest.

Smith is a former world title challenger who fought Canelo in 2016 and was on the wrong side of a decision to Jaime Munguia in 2018.

Liverpool ace Smith said: "He's making a big mistake fighting me. Every time he has fought at the top level, he has failed. I know I am at that level and when he steps up on January 21st in Manchester, I'm confident he'll lose again.

"If he was at 60% for the fight that never was against Conor Benn, then he'll need to be at 160% to be ready to face me, a former world champion, in front of thousands of my fans in the North-West.

"For Chris this is a high-risk, low-reward. For me, it's the perfect platform to show I will rule the world again in 2023. He needs to be prepared for the toughest night of his career."
