The British adversaries were on a collision course in 2018 during the World Boxing Super Series but Eubank Jr lost his semi-final to George Groves, who was then knocked out in the final by Callum Smith.

Eubank Jr has now met up with Team Sauerland, who promoted the World Boxing Super Series, as he lays plans for a relaunch of his career in Britain.

But Smith doesn’t expect Eubank Jr to win a world title at his next attempt.

“He can get in the mix because his name always brings a lot,” Smith told Sky Sports. He carries his dad’s name so he has a big profile. “He talks a good fight so will always talk himself into big fights.

“But as we’ve seen in the Billy Joe Saunders fight [when Eubank Jr lost his unbeaten record in 2014] and the Groves fight, when he steps up to the highest level his lack of boxing ability seems to let him down.

“He is very fit, athletic, strong. He’s a better middleweight than he is a super-middleweight. “But at the very top level he lacks the natural ability to beat the top guys.

“He will always be in a position to be in those fights. But I don’t see him beating any of the top ones.”

Eubank Jr also enjoyed a career-best win against James DeGale, just two years ago but has had just one round of in-ring action since.
