Former super middleweight champion Carl Froch is urging Chris Eubank Jr. to face a "big name" sooner than later.

Froch was ringside this past Saturday night, and watched Eubank Jr. secure a fifth round stoppage win over Wanik Awdijan at the Utilita Arena in Newcastle.

Eubank is now expected to fight again on a date in December.

One of the names that Eubank mentioned after his most recent win is a showdown with domestic rival Liam Williams. He also mentioned a rematch with Billy Joe Saunders, but that scenario comes at a very heavy price - with Saunders demanding at least 5 million to do that fight.

"Anybody with a world title, anybody that the fans want to see me fight. A guy that keeps popping up is Liam Williams. Everybody seems to want that fight to happen. That's an option," Eubank said.

"You've got Saunders running around. He says that he wants to fight me for £5 million! The options are endless. All I know is - December onwards - big names, world titles. It's going to be a hell of a 12 months."

Froch likes the idea of a fight between Eubank and Williams.

"The Liam Williams fight is a good fight, but he definitely, 100 percent needs to now get a move on," Froch told Sky Sports.

"We need to see him in there with a big name, or a bigger name. Maybe the Billy Joe Saunders rematch. I quite like that fight. When people start pricing themselves out of the fight, that's when you realize that maybe they don't want the fight.

"We need to see Chris Eubank Jr in with a big name and we need to see a performance, because the time is nigh, it really is."
