Can't see him making it at world level. Does throw nice punches going backwards but I can't see anything special about him.

I tend to agree with you BUT i would like to see Eubank step up and fight a decent opponent first. One of them should fight the guy murray struggled with and then went on to beat the shit outta Buglioni.

Two slight criticisms .... Billy joe looks a bit soft ..carrying a bit o spare flesh perhaps. Also he seemed to disobey the ref after he hurt his man, the ref directed him to stop punching it seemed to me and still BJS barged past him and threw at least 2or 3 "extra"punches at a helpless man on the ropes. I know this is pro boxing and he is not there to do his opponent any favours but he was lucky he wasn't penalised for that.

Based on what? Eubank Jr hasn't beaten anyone? Saunders has at least been tested and come through those tests so far.

I thought it was a good performance considering it was his first fight in a while. He was fighting a guy with an awkward style which to be fair would make most fighters look bad.

He looked a bit soft considering he is said to live the life and he seems to lack abit of physical strength imo.

His combinations looked sharp and his workfare was very good. Will he get to win a world title I wouldn't like to say.

Still a work in progress the layoff hasn't helped as he is a fighter that needs to keep active and in the gym.

The opponent last night was awkward but a good crisp shot to end the fight.

Jimmy Tibbs likes to keep him in the gym as much as possible and has done a good job with him so far.

Would be a good bench mark from them. Eubank needs to step up against someone like him.

Very controversial by all accounts. Apparently Khomistky was well on top but the referee waved it off because his - Khomistky's corner - had ran out of tape for his gloves.

Euban Jr KOs another eastern european nobody(off the top of your head can you even remember his opponents name? exactly), BJS beats yet another ranked opponent = Eubank jr beats him?

it seems like it's really easy to con people in boxing (deontay wilder springs to mind) eubank jr has never fought anyone remotely close to BJS in class

Doesn't look strong at the weight at all. Fair enough he's has a 10 month layoff but it makes you wonder whether he lives the life 12 months of the year. To be fair, he's accomplished a lot for his age and will get stronger but he needs big improvements on last night. Looked great in small doses, hopefully a case of ring rust.

Really didn't like the way he carried on punching after the ref had physical contact with both fighters, just a sign of how much this guy frustrated him.

Yes..he seems to have a bit of a temper and lacks discipline. He was lucky to get away with it last night....another ref and he mightn't be so lucky.....
