Looks Like a New Date Will Be Set In This On Off Fight
Eubank vs Benn 2022
The history behind this fight is one of a kind, there fathers had two professional boxing matches which took place on 18 November 1990 and 9 October 1993. Both Benn and Eubank fought at middleweight and super middleweight.
Eubank took the win the first time around after knocking Benn out in the ninth round of a scintillating scrap in front of a raucous crowd at the NEC in Birmingham.
In the second fight, it went to the judges, the final scores were 115–113 Eubank, 114–113 Benn, and 114–114. The bout was declared a draw – Benn retained his WBC belt, Eubank his WBO championship.
Now its time for the off springs to carry on the rivalry on the pro level, over 30 years on.
The pair, who were separated by two divisions in their last fight, have agreed to square off at a catchweight of 157lbs at the O2 Arena, on 8th October 2022
Benn is making the step up from welterweight, adding 10lbs to his usual fighting weight, whereas Eubank has agreed to drop down to the lowest weight class of his career, stepping down from middleweight.
We feel this fight could come down who take to there new weight class best, we know dropping weight can leave fighters feeling weak and they seem to get tired quicker, but that said a big adding 10lb for Benn wont be easy.
Eubank has won 32 of his 34 bouts as a professional, while Benn is unbeaten in 21 outings in the paid ranks.
Eubank Jr Win @4/7
As much as we like Benn we feel a 10lb gain could leave him sluggish.
Under 8 Rounds @5/4
Via KO @10/11
Odds updated, this will be a cracking fight and probably the biggest fight in the UK since there Fathers met 30ish years ago.
