CHRIS EUBANK JR vs Liam Smith is signed and sealed for January 21 in Manchester.

The middleweight rivals will clash on a Sky Sports show almost four months after Eubank Jr's clash with Conor Benn was cancelled, just three days out from the mega-money clash.

But the 33-year-old can make up for that hit in the pocket by getting his hands on his 34-year-old Liverpool rival, who has repeatedly dismissed the Brighton man's ability.

Smith - from the famous fighting family that includes Paul, Callum and Stephen -  said: “He’s making a big mistake fighting me. 

"Every time he has stepped up to elite level, he has failed. 

"I am elite and he will fall again on January 21st in Manchester.

“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. "

But Eubank Jr reckons he's "twice" as good as Smith.

He said: "He has he been in there with some good fighters. Are they on my level? No.

" He's a competent fighter but class beats competence every day of the week.

"It's a good opportunity for me to show I'm twice the fighter that he is as well as those he has faced.

“Manchester is an iconic sporting city. It has hosted many legendary fight nights and many memorable fighters have been born there.

"It'll be a great performance and the Eubank name will hopefully become a regular feature whenever the boxing history of Manchester is discussed.”

Knicks and Cam Reddishs representatives working towards trade: source

Less than a year after acquiring Cam Reddish for a first-round pick, the Knicks still don’t have a role for the young wing and are working with his representatives on a trade, a source told the Daily News.

Reddish was pulled from the rotation this week, logging his first healthy DNP of the season in a victory over the Cavs. He started eight games this season and showed flashes of the blue-chip potential that made him the 10th pick in 2019 while averaging 8.4 points in 22 minutes.

The Knicks declined to make Reddish available to the media for three straight days, including Wednesday morning ahead of a game against his former team, the Hawks.

The Knicks acquired Reddish from the Hawks in January of last season, but he’s mostly been on the bench and is now firmly behind Quentin Grimes in the rotation.

”It’s not just on Cam, it’s on our team,” Thibodeau said. “What gives our team the best chance? And so I’d say those are coaching decisions; to decide to go from a 10-man rotation to nine because you feel like it [gives] the team the best chance to succeed. That’s why you do it. You always have to put the team first. So there’s a lot of sacrifices that need to be made by a team. But we’re always going to put what we feel is best for the team first.”

According to the Athletic’s Fred Katz, the Knicks are willing to attach Reddish to a trade to unload the contract of Evan Fournier, who is also out of the rotation.

The Knicks and Reddish did not agree to an extension before the October deadline, meaning the 23-year-old will become a free agent in the summer.

“We wanted to get a look at it. And there’s still time,” Thibodeau said. “That’s all part of the league. You always look at all the possibilities of how you think you can improve your team. And you can’t be afraid to take chances. There were some real good things that he’s done, so that’s the way we approach it.”
