Chris Eubank Jr and Wanik Awdijan in row ahead of fight: 'Why didn't you fight me the first time?'
Chris Eubank Jr vowed to punish his opponent Wanik Awdijan for his trash talk when a fiery argument broke out ahead of their fight.
Eubank Jr and Awdijan will settle their differences on Saturday in Newcastle, live on Sky Sports, alongside Savannah Marshall's world title defence and Hughie Fury's heavyweight fight.
Eubank Jr said at Thursday's press conference about his opponent: "I'm disappointed in this man here because he had so much to say online. So much heat and energy came from his social media.
"Now? I see a man who doesn't have the same fire."
Awdijan shot back: "Just wait."
