CHRIS EUBANK JR was taunted by Conor Benn and Billy Joe Saunders as they twisted the knife in following his surprise loss to Liam Smith.
Eubank hit the deck twice – his first trip to the canvas as a professional – in round four before the fight was stopped.
The middleweight, 33, only took the bout following the collapse of his catchweight clash with Benn, 26.
But Benn failed drug tests and the fight – almost 30 years after their dads' famous rematch – was scrapped.
The unbeaten welterweight is fighting to clear his name and is growing increasingly confident in doing so.
And despite a period of silence, Benn came out swinging in reaction to Eubank's brutal loss to Smith.

Benn was not the only one of Eubank's rivals to chime in as Saunders, 33, dedicated a rare social media post to his old opponent.
The former two-weight world champion won their 2014 European title fight and a rematch has been talked about ever since.
Saunders took the chance to aim a dig at Eubank, who claimed he could beat Smith at 50 per cent of his ability.
