Chris Eubank Sr wants to pull Chris Jr out of Conor Benn fight over fears he could lose another son
CHRIS EUBANK JR wants to pull his son out of his catchweight clash with Conor Benn.
Eubank Jr is set to drop down to 157lb for the next generation bout, 30 years after their fathers’ famous rematch.
But according to the Daily Mail, his dad wants to intervene and withdraw his eldest from the pay-per-view fight.
A quote read: “My son’s life cannot be put in danger… I’ve already lost one. It can’t happen again.”
Eubank’s son Sebastian, who was also a boxer, suddenly passed away aged 29 last year.
And it appears the task of dropping down to a career-lowest weight has struck fear into Eubank Sr.
Eubank Jr, 32, signed to drop from the 160lb middleweight division, with Benn, 25, jumping up 10lb from his usual welterweight limit.
And the size disparity also meant a clause limiting what the pair could weigh the next morning was also put in place.
It would mean weighing in twice, although the exact rehydration cap was not revealed by either party.
