James DeGale 25-2-1 (15) and Chris Eubank Jr 27-2 (21) exchanged heated words at the final press conference ahead of their bad blood match-up at the O2 Arena in London this Saturday night.

The 12-round fight will be broadcast by Showtime Championship Boxing in the United States and ITV Box Office in the United Kingdom.

“I vacated my title for fights like this. Chris Eubank has been calling my name for a long time and finally I get a chance to punch him in his face,” former two-time super middleweight champion DeGale said.

“I have no respect for him. None. This guy is a deluded idiot. And on Saturday night I can’t wait to deal with him. I’m going to come and give it to him properly. He can’t box. We’ve all heard this before. This is the biggest fight of his career. It’s retirement time. Whoever loses this fight is finished.

“It’s do or die on Saturday… His retirement fight is here. It’s his last fight, I promise you that. I’m proven. I’ve been there, done that. I’ve won everything. He’s done nothing. And I’m going to retire him.”

Eubank Jr was unequivocal in his assessment of DeGale.

“This guy is a bum. He talks a good game. He’s going to have a good go, but at the end of the day I’m going to be too much for him,” Eubank Jr said.

“We are both at a stage where we can’t lose. We are both fighting for our careers. He knows he can’t handle me. He’s asking himself, ‘Can I survive?’ And the answer is absolutely not. There’s nothing he can do in that ring that I can’t handle. I’m going to box his head off.”
