I don't just think he can be world champion, but I also believe a career undefeated and the best fighter to ever come from Britain.

I can tell you one thing though, every person who gets on his back because of his dad being around, he will never win over. I believe that his dad is the perfect mentor, he will keep him from all the shit that surrounds boxing and that will make him focused 100% to the sport, not getting in the media for the wrong reasons, and not thinking he has made it well before he has, will see him successful. It's a champions mentality. Although of recent I must admit, it seems like Jr is starting to become a bit of a wannabe and is starting to cross over to the dark side.

People who hate on his dad need to get real, nobody else has his best interests at heart, more than his dad. And he will keep him away from all the sh*t that to many young fighters get into and take boxing for granted.....those are the ones who don't achieve anything.

You may take the piss out of the man because of his persona and showmanship because it seems like its the "in thing" to do. But the man is right and he's been there and done it.

He is bang on the money about having "no life" if you want to be a champion of genuine worth and f*cking bang on about DeGale, that is the example of what NOT to do.

If Jr keeps his head down like he was doing. Nothing but greatness awaits.

Yes, or should I say...maybe. Depending on whos about at the time. There are some soft touches out there holding belts, at times.

He's massively unpolished at the moment though, at this moment in time he's a long way away from beating a tough British champion let alone getting to that level. As Mand points out the main thing you notice is how forced he is. Nothing comes naturally, he loads up, the 'relaxed style' is all pretend, he's trying way too hard. He needs to slow things down, think about timing shots correctly, think about his transition into shots and forget about throwing punches with brute force.

I think its too early to tell, but if he keeps traning hard and devloping his power i reckon he'll have a good chance in todays boxing scene!! Look at Amir Khan, he wouldn't even be Known if he fought 20 years ago.. Hes a good enough mover, hes got the confidence!! and hes got it in his blood too

That's a pretty big statement to make at this stage

chris eubank was a great fighter and a great showman but he's a ****ing idiot. he's already proved to be a shit mentor. he might be better for his son but to say he's 'the perfect mentor' i dont agree with at all.

i hope he has a beard like his dad because he takes far to many shots to go far in the game imo.

He's not very good at all IMO.

Very fun to watch though.

No, but I beleive he'll be a very high profile British/Euro/Inter champ on 5 before he inevitably gets derailed.

Who can possibly say at this point in time? The only reason the question gets asked is because of who is Dad is which unfortunatly isn't a basis for awarding world titles.

People were calling for Paul Smith after Eubanks first pro fight against a human punchbag. Paul Smith isn't as good as he thinks he is but he'd still chew up and spit out a 1 fight novice.

Yeah it's too early to tell, he does some nice things and things he needs to work on as you would expect at this stage and without much of an amateur background from what I understand?

His lack of power or even throwing spiteful shots are a concern though.
