After years of bitter rivalry and months of preparation, the two super-middleweights are finally about to meet in the boxing ring. The former sparring partners' relationship turned sour when insults got personal, and they've been at each other's throats ever since.

Chris Eubank Jr (27-2, 21 KOs) will be up against former two-time world super-middleweight champion DeGale (25-2-1, 15 KOs).
