Collins tells Eubank Jr Gym mate Andy Lee doesn’t respect him

Andy Lee doesn’t respect Chris Eubank Jr or rate him as a fighter according to Pascal Collins.

Eubank Jr, who faces Collin’s charge Gary ‘Spike’ O’Sullivan in a WBA World title eliminator, has recently teamed up with Andy Lee’s trainer Adam Booth and  the World champion has seen the English puncher up close and personal in the gym as both prepare for big December nights.

And ‘Spike’s’ trainer claims the WBO middleweight title holder hasn’t been impressed with what he has seen.

Speaking at the press conference to announce the fight Collins taunted O’Sullivan’s upcoming Bad Intentions opponent.

“You’re own gym-mate Andy Lee thinks you can’t fight, what’s that say about you? He said you and Spike are Starbuck fighters and he see’s you everyday. He said you can’t fight.”

Collin’s hasn’t inside information, but was forming an opinion on comments the Irish World champion made recently calling O’Sullivan versus Eubank Jr a Starbucks fight in relation to a quality bout between himself and Billy Joe Saunders.

Adam Booth was quick to defend both his fighters claiming Lee believes the Brighton fighter is a World class operator.

“That’s not true, Andy has said that Chris is a World class fighter. Andy has nothing but respect for Chris.”
