Chris Eubank Jr wants a rematch with Billy Joe Saunders after beating Russia's Dimitry Chudinov to win the WBA 'interim' middleweight title.

The British fighter, 25, cut Chudinov's left eye early in a contest in which he was in control from the opening round.

Eubank Jr failed to knock Chudinov over but he connected with so many punches in the 12th and last round that Swedish referee Michael Hook stopped the fight.

He said: "I'm ready for redemption. Billy Joe Saunders I'm coming for you."

Saunders won their November fight on points, but a bullish Eubank Jr, speaking on Box Nation, added: "I want a rematch.

"I know what Billy is about, and the boxing public know that I'm a league above him. I now know I can go 12 rounds and turn up in the 12th."
