Default Chris Eubank Sr pondering ring return

Just read on the front page that Eubank Sr would love to entered the square circle again on the same card as his son, he has even talked to Nigel Benn about a possible rubbermatch but would have to get approval from the fans first

Personally with the sudden decline of Bernard Hopkins, I would love to see a Final goodbye in a 8 round exhibition fight (ala rocky 6) with Eubank in the opposing corner or a return with benn

It would definitely get fans viewing to watch, like it or not but I wouldnt want to see Eubank hurt or worse after recent tragic events

So as far as a full on competetive fight, Chris I say no. but an Exhibition match for old times sake and to raise the profile of Eubank jr a little more? Hell yeah!

Running out of finantial resources. It's the same aold story. They invest and have to keep the business running but costs ask for money inflow. Calzaghe will be back too...

Yeah, he and Jones would be cool. So would he and Calzaghe. He and Hopkins. He and Benn. He and Cleverly. He and Kessler in Denmark!

Yeah, go for it.

By all accounts he looked really good sparring Montell Griffin at Top Rank Gym a couple of years ago.

Heres a proposition

Chris Eubank Sr V Roy Jones - 8 rounds

Tyson Fury V Mike Perez - 12 rounds

Junior Witter V Mathew Hatton - 12 rounds

Chris Eubank Jr V Tony Hill - 8 rounds

Kid Galahad V Rendal Munroe - 12 rounds

Mick Hennessy, get on it!

Show some respect, even in his very last fight up at cruiser (an immediate rematch i might add) against the WBO cruiserweight champ who knocked out david haye, Eubank has never been humiliated in the ring like Jones has

If he wants to scratch the old itch then why not have an exhibition with Jones jr at 175 in a fight that would finally coax Jones into retirement

Im up for it, he has my approval

He can comeback whenever he wants, it's not like he needs our permission. LOL

Not saying that he does but if you read the article on the front page he said he would have to have public backing before he made that decision

I for one am for an exhibition with another well known retired or at least close to retired fighter, no animosity, no big hype of whose better than who but a display of the sweet science and a nostalgia for all of the older fight fans

Lets get it on!

Bit of an over exaggeration dont you think? im not talking long deceased fighters or an actual official fight. Im talking an exhibition over 6-8 rounds

Even Mike Tyson fought a few exhibitions after he retired

He still had him hurt, Eubank went 12 rounds with thompson previously and the second fight was only stopped between rounds due to the damage to eubanks eye, it was swollen pretty badly if i remember

Mans kept himself in good nick why can't he? Of course i would hope he only wants to entertain the fans and himself for that matter by treating it like an exhibition. Who are a load of keyboard warriors to judge? All you haters would get sparked by a 45 year old Eubank
