"He had the greatest win of his career in February and no one has seen him since. I don't know why. "Sometimes offers are made but cannot be delivered upon. He probably earns a whole lot of money and has not had an offer. "I really could create the Saunders or even Smith fight today." Saunders, who holds the WBO super-middleweight name,

in 2014 finished eubank Jr's unbeaten start to his career. And then George Groves, who subsequently lost his WBA belt in the final to Smith removed in the semi-finals of this World Boxing Super Series last year Eubank Jr. Asked if he'd approach Eubank Jr having the enquiry, Hearn said:"Yes, 100 percent. Billy Joe and Callum are equally up for this fight. "I believe Eubank Jr wants to win world titles so why not? Eubank Jr is a big name and a good fighter." Eubank Jr told Sky Sports earlier this week:"The win over DeGale felt gratifying for many reasons as it proved what I've understood all along. I've always believed in myself and that's the way, although there was many who had some doubts over me regarding my position in this sport. "I see myself as the best fighter in the world and that's because I must. There can not be any other way. "I can't go to a struggle with another names which are around my weight, who desire the same as me, rather than feel that I'm better than them" Saturday morning at 2am, live on Sky Sports Action - Devin Haney vs Zaur Abdullaev, Heather Hardy vs Amanda Serrano, Michael Hunter vs Sergey Kuzmin.
