Chris Eubank Jr: 'I Want The Rest Of DeGale's Teeth'

IBF Super middleweight champion James DeGale infamously lost his front tooth during his hard fought draw with Baduo Jack earlier this year. Now, newly crowned IBO super middleweight king Chris Eubank Jr. wants the rest of Chunky's teeth.

Speaking via ESPN.com, Chris Jr. said:

"I'm coming for everybody. DeGale, I want the rest of those teeth."I've said it from day one: I've sparred with the guy many years ago, back before I was a pro, and I dealt with him. I know what I can do to him. It's a fight the public want to see and now we have the platform. Let's do it."

Eubank Jr. is coming off a 10th round stoppage of Australian Renold Quinlon last weekend. The victory earned Eubank the not so prestigious IBO title. But with it, he can now be called world champion and can rank himself alongside DeGale and another compatriot in Billy Joe Saunders.

Saunders is the current WBO super middleweight champion. He is also the man who dealt Eubank Jr. the only loss of his pro career in 2014. Aside from targetting DeGale's molars, Eubank is also eyeing vengeance on Saunders. Added Eubank:

"I know Saunders is starving as well -- no fans, fighting in leisure centres in front of 300 people. He needs to fight and we all want that fight, me more than anybody. Saunders is starving and I'm the food. Without me he hasn't got anything. The only thing he has is a win over me; that's his entire career, and I need to right that wrong."

With two targets in mind, Eubank Jr. hopes to return to action as soon as April to make up for lost time. The Quinlon fight was Chris Jr'.'s first in eight months and the elder Eubank wants his son to be more active this year. 

Will Eubank's title winning performance earn him a date with either DeGale or Saunders?
