Saunders eyes Eubank Jr rematch

Billy Joe Saunders wants a rematch with Chris Eubank Jr, but only if he gets paid enough money.

Saunders, who is unbeaten in 22 professional fights, faces WBO middleweight champion Andy Lee on Saturday in his first shot at a world title.

Former Olympian Saunders beat Eubank Jr last year on a split point’s decision with the Hatfield-born boxer showing his class on the night.

Since then, Eubank Jr has knocked out Dmitry Chudinov and Tony Jeter, before his latest high-profile triumph over Irishman Gary O’Sullivan last weekend.

Saunders wasn’t impressed with Eubank Jr’s performance in London and admitted he would happily fight him next.

"I've beaten him. He goes to bed at night thinking about me, he's in the bath thinking about me," he told Sky Sports. "I can go to bed and sleep at night knowing I've dealt with him and beaten him, not a problem.

"Pay me enough money, I'll fight him next, no problem. I can keep Junior waiting as long as I want, I've beaten him. 

“At the end of the day he'll fight when I say, so he can carry on fighting whoever he's going to fight, but if the public really demanded it, it's not a problem. I'm a fighting man and I'll have it with anybody."
