Chris Eubank Jr has taken yet another pot shot at Conor Benn over the two failed VADA tests that saw their fight pulled at the last hour last year.
Though the two have never been best friends, it is clear now the animosity between them has reached new levels and that a rescheduled clash would be even bigger than first time around, over one year on.
And some recent comments posted by EverythingBoxing from Eubank shows he believes just as much, stating the pair will lock horns in the next 6-12 months as he can’t allow what’s gone on to fly.
“The fights even bigger.. Now there is animosity between us. In my opinion he cheated, and he tried to pull the wool over my eyes and I can’t allow that to fly…we have issues we need to solve..it will happen within the next 6-12 months.”

There are reportedly plans afoot for the two family rivals to lock horns in a grudge match this December, with reports saying recently a deal has been agreed with representatives from Abu Dhabi.
Benn and Eubank were due to clash last October, however the fight was derailed at the last minute after news broke that the former had returned two positive VADA tests.
That issue is not fully cleared up yet, with Benn still not in possession of a British Boxing Board of Control license, who have decided to appeal the decision to lift his suspension.
After 14 months out of action due to his performance enhancing drugs scandal, Benn returned to action last month in a super welterweight contest against a durable Mexican Rudolfo Orozco, who took him the ten round distance in an entertaining affair.
‘The Destroyer’ would likely have to go up to middleweight for a fight with Eubank and would thus be at a significant size disadvantage.
