HELLO again… I took a step back for a couple of weeks (probably to the joy of some readers) due to a close family illness a but it gave me the chance to weigh up the fight scene as it is, and I came to the conclusion that the middleweights are the exciting division for Britain at the moment.

The Chris Eubank Jnr fight against Tony Jeter was, as expected, a mismatch although the 39-year-old Jeter gave all he could.  To be fair it was not much apart from courage. I wanted to see what difference the addition of Adam Booth to his training camp had on him and although four minutes was not much of a yardstick I feel that had Eubank had the same determination against Billy Joe Saunders the result may have been different.

However, before there is any thought of a return, Eubank will have to overcome the tough as teak Irish man Spike O’Sullivan who can also whack a bit as witnessed by many when delivering his ‘Good night Vienna’ sleeping tablet on countryman Anthony Fitzgerald last year.
