Chris Eubank Jr lands huge cash windfall after betting on Canelo Alvarez to stop Saunders before calling out P4P star
CHRIS EUBANK JR landed a huge cash windfall after betting on Canelo Alvarez to stop Billy Joe Saunders – then called out the unified champ.
The British middleweight star stuck £10,000 on the Mexican to win the fight before it went the full 12 rounds.
And with odds of evens, he doubled his money when Saunders quit from his stool after the eighth.
Now a charity of his choice is on course for a bumper donation with Eubank promising to give the winnings away to a good cause.
The 31-year-old Sussex man had already tweeted a picture of the betting slip with William Hill.
And after Canelo ripped the WBO super-middleweight belt from Saunders, Eubank was quick to jump back on to social media.
He tweeted a series of laughing and money emojis.
And then wrote: "Canelo if you want a Brit to give you a real fight… I’m ready & waiting."
Eubank lost to BJS in a split decision way back in 2014 – his first pro defeat.
And there is clearly no love lost nearly seven years on.

In a video shared on his Instagram story, Eubank was filmed laughing at Saunders as he suffered in his corner.
Wearing a cap, t-shirt and jeans, the 30-2 fighter labelled 'Superb' a 'wet bag'.
He then told the camera: "Give me the ten grand, baby, give me the ten grand."
Before the Canelo-Saunders fight, Eubank tweeted a picture of him smirking and captioned it: "When someone says Saunders has a chance against Canelo…." followed by a laughing face.
And he was proved right when Canelo brutally dispatched Saunders in Texas.
The Brit was looking impressive before he was crunched with a trademark uppercut from his rival which broke his eye socket forcing him to throw the towel in.
Saunders was rushed to hospital as Canelo – ahead on all three scorecards at the time of the stoppage – celebrated his victory.
Eubank returned to the ring earlier in May after 17 months with a unanimous-decision win over Marcus Morrison in Manchester.
And now he is clearly eyeing a big step up by challenging the WBA, WBC, WBO and The Ring super-middleweight king.
