Chris Eubank Jr. admits he bit 'dirty' rival Liam Williams
Chris Eubank Jr. admitted that he bit his opponent, Liam Willams, as the pair fought in Cardiff on Saturday night.
Eubank was the clear winner over the Welshman after years of bad blood between the two, with the 32-year-old Englishman levelling accusations that Williams, 29, was a dirty fighter.
Eubank won 116-109, 116-108 and 117-109 and sent his opponent to the canvas four times, but the referee was called upon to separate clinches time after time. Eubank claimed after the fight that Williams’ underhanded tactics forced him to bite his rival.
"We knew he was going to come dirty and try everything he could to take the fight to me, whether it was in or out of the rules of boxing," he said after the bout.
"I'm upset the referee didn't take a point for the amount of headlocks, headbutts and everything was going on. I actually had to bite him at one point
"I've never bitten anybody in the ring before. He squeezed his arm around his neck, his glove was kind of close to my mouth so I gave it a bite as hard as I could.
"If he's going to fight dirty, I'm going to fight dirty. It is what it is, it was a fun fight."
