British boxer Chris Eubank Jr wore a rainbow armband while attending his weigh-in for his fight agaisnt Liam Smith. On 19 January, the two middleweight fighters participated in a press conference ahead of their highly anticipated match.

While the meeting was tense due to their impending grudge fight, things took a homophobic turn when Smith made childish assumptions about Eubank Jr’s sexuality.  “You go on about girls, has anybody in this room ever seen you with a girl?

You got something to tell us?” the Liverpool boxer said. In response, Eubank Jr effortlessly shut down Smith’s anti-gay remarks by stating this his “private life” was “irrelevant to the boxing.”   “I am happy and comfortable.

What would you like too know, Liam? If you want to get personal, talking about being gay? I’ve been told you cheat on your wife,” he added.
