DeGale has rattled off two wins following his defeat to Caleb Traux in 2017, including a victory against him.

Eubank Jr returned to the win column after losing to George Groves in the World Boxing Super Series: Super-Middleweight semi-final.

DeGale is eager to 'zip' Eubank Jr's lips.

"Eubank is a decent fighter but every time he's stepped up he's been found out. He has called my name for a long time. Now I've got my chance to zip his lips," he said at the pre-fight press conference.

Eubank Jr is ready to 'school' DeGale.

"DeGale is going to get the schooling of his career. A good old-fashioned hiding."
