Chris Eubank Jr warmed up for his fight against fellow Briton Billy Joe Saunders with a second-round stoppage of Germany's Omar Siala in Liverpool.

"The main fight is against average Joe," said the son of former world super-middle and middleweight champion Chris Eubank, after outclassing Siala.

Unbeaten Eubank Jr, 25, fights British and European middleweight champion Saunders on 29 November in London.

The bout is on the undercard of the Derek Chisora-Tyson Fury contest.

"The best is yet to come," continued Eubank Jr, who has won all 18 of his paid fights.

"This guy didn't deserve to fight me. I took this fight because I'm a fighter. Even if I did get injured I still would have fought Saunders - and beat him.

"You saw the power my punches were causing to the other guy."

Meanwhile, Luke Campbell made it nine wins out of nine professional fights in his home city with a fifth-round stoppage in his lightweight clash with Daniel Brizuela at the Hull Ice Arena.

The 2012 Olympic bantamweight gold medallist, 27, was always ahead, and following a flurry of blows the referee stepped in to spare Campbell's Argentine opponent further punishment.

On the same bill, Tommy Coyle demolished Michael Katsidis with a second-round stoppage in another lightweight contest.

Coyle sent his experienced Australian opponent to the canvas with a devastating left hook to the chin that handed victory for the 25-year-old Hull fighter.
