It would be extremely difficult to find domestic fighters that bad.

I feel people are harsh on Eubanks Jr. He is not his dad he is his own fighter he has had 4 fights that are NOT with bums but decent well experienced fighters giving a good account of himself. You see 'prospects' put in with Johnny Greaves and fighters of that calibre thats okay to gain rounds in the ring with experience but He has been in with unbeaten Paul Allison and Harry Matthews who can also fight

Give him a break and let him get his fights going and see what he's got after 10 fights

You're right. It's the 5th fight I've seen, and he looked even worse than Jnr.

Anyway, you think he is feather fisted, I actually disagree, He would have had the guy out of there if it was a 12round fight. You are reading far far too much into and early in the career six rounder.
I don't see any contradictions at all.....one fights in the knowledge that his power isn't great and is mature enough to use movement as the clincher whilst the other throws to the bleachers in the hope that somethings going to land. Eubank gets caught and he gets caught often, I sincerely hope that he has inherited his dads whiskers because fighting like that he'll need them.

No, they are bums. Except I don't like the term 'bum'. So instead I'll use the term 'extremely low-level journeymen'.

Once again - the people Eubank are fighting can't throw punches effectively because of lack of training and basic technique - hence the large amounts of PTS verdicts. They are fighting people that are in the same boat at around the same level. At that lowly level people with winning records lose against people with awful records as a matter of course.

I bow to your greater knowledge. I suppose what I don't like is his i8nsistance that he wants to be his dad....everything stinks of his dad...he needs to just go his own way, satisfy himself and carve his own course

Well they must be good 'extremely low-level journeymen' as Harry Matthews has gone 10 rounds twice and fought for British Masters title 3 times, Allison was unbeaten and look very good. They are not as bad as some of the people the other promotors stick in the ring with their 'prospects' they are decent fighters who could cause a bit of trouble

Couldn't agree more. It would help if Sr will bugger off from ringside - or at the very least he wasn't interviewed.

The camera went on them post fight and it was like a 2005 Grime video
Sideways caps, middle fingers and rap style hand gestures

Sounds like they were alright, then again anyone is when compared to people from Birmingham.
