It’s no secret Chris Eubank has huge criticism over the way he has decided to guide, or interfere with his sons career of recent. Back in the 90’s Eubank seniors career was popping off but he soon blew it all away. The man is still a very lavish character, very eccentric and extremely unique, had the world at his hands but pissed it up the wall and went bankrupt. Been there done that, Senior is making sure Jr’s career is built financially correct for what he sees fit to make sure he does not mirror the rise and fall he did. With a recent pull out of his first defence of the British Middleweight Title and what seemed to be hitting a brick with the Gennady Golovkin negotiations, he hasn’t fought since a mismatch destruction of Tom Doran earlier on in the year. Matchroom promoter Eddie Hearn and Boxnation promoter Frank Warren have both had dealings with the Eubank’s this year and have both admitted almost pulling their hair out, demanding outrageous deals and contracts and outpricing themselves. Eubank Jr has vacated his British Title, and has given up his mandatory position to fight WBA Regular Middleweight Champion Danny Jacobs which leaves him a few steps back. He is still a big contender in the division but seems to think his market value is world level, without having the belt. The fight we all want to see, without a doubt is a rematch with WBO Middleweight Champion Billy Joe Saunders who handed Jr his only professional defeat. This has the ingredients to be a blockbuster, providing Boxnation and the Eubanks could come to an agreement that meets both their requirements. With Saunders lining up a shot with GGG in 2017, it seems Chris Eubank Jr will be involved in a few more disappointing domestic clashes in the new year. Not too exciting!
