What have they said?
Eubank Jr, on how new coach Roy Jones Jr has changed his style: "Mentally is the biggest part. Physically? I'm 31, I won't be a changed fighter, my style is what it is.
"There are things he has tweaked or made me focus on, but the main change is how I mentally approach these fights.
"The tactics, the thought process, the mind-set that I have now is different. Being with him will add years to my career.
"It's not about going to war every time anymore. It's about being smart and not getting hit. Some of those things I had lost focus on.
"I put that down to moving up to super-middleweight – knowing I was against guys who were naturally bigger, I got it into my head that I had to hurt them early so they didn't bully me. I lost sight of the boxing.
"At middleweight nobody will bully me, nobody is bigger than me, so I can focus on the art and craft rather than the war aspect.
