Conor Benn reacts to Chris Eubank Jr's shock Smith KO loss and claims it would 'not lasted two rounds' if they'd fought | The Sun01/22/2023
CONOR BENN laughed at rival Chris Eubank Jr after he was beaten by Liam Smith.
Benn was set to fight Eubank last year before he failed a drug test days before the event.
The fighter has since tried to clear his name while Eubank fought Smith at the AO Arena.
Smith defeated Eubank with a fourth-round stoppage to crown himself Britain’s best middleweight.
Benn was delighted with the result and mocked Eubank alongside his dad, the boxing great Nigel Benn.
Benn smiled at the camera before asking his father what he thought of the fight.
He said on Instagram: "What you saying dad? Wouldn't have gone past two would it," referencing what would have happened if they had fought.
Nigel responded by giggling and fist-bumping the air.
Benn further put the boot into his second-generation rival, writing on Twitter: "Oh man, @ChrisEubankJr it’s a good job you didn’t fight me. You’d last two rounds at 160."
It comes after Eubank mocked Benn earlier this week after the Londoner tried to proclaim his innocence in light of the failed drugs test.

Benn wrote: "Been through hell and back.
"Thank God for science. The evidence doesn't lie. No holes in the truth."
Eubank hit back, saying: "I’m pretty sure it was science that detected the illegal substances in your system on two separate occasions Conor.
"So yes absolutely thank god for science… otherwise I would of been fighting the hulk a few months ago!!"
