Could easily be mind tricks but the weight really doesn't seem a good idea.
Would explain why he's been so quiet about it all. Clearly doesn't agree with it.
Let’s hope so. It’s all very silly.
I hope they get someone half decent to fight Benn as a replacement who is upgrade on his previous 2 opponents.
I know it's short notice granted but it's needs to be a half opponent.Hopefully someone half decent who already in training and can step in.
I don't think Eubank Sr is lying or playing mind games here. There's no way he would make such a statement using the death of his son Sebastian Eubank to promote this fight. It explains why he hasn't been vocal about this fight since it was announced.
The fight will still happen because Eubank Jr probably won't listen to his father, but I wouldn't be surprised if he has no involvement.
This is a very Chris Eubank thing to do.
Stopping your 32 year old son from going to work !
Maybe he should lay off the KFC's and give himself half a chance of making the weight.
This echoes my thoughts exactly, I don't think Snr would say something like that just to generate more interest.
I also think it still goes ahead just maybe without Snr in his corner
I think Benn wins given the catchweight and rehydration clause
Eddie will be having a fit.
In order of likelihood...
Could be promo
Could be trying to get the weight limit raised
Could be just as he says
Eubank Sr.'s already lost one son, so he probably that Eubank Jr. could be severely affected by the weight cut. Plus, no one knows what's going on behind closed doors. Maybe Eubank Jr. truly is struggling.
Or maybe Sr is shamelessly trying to get the rules changed.
If he’s using his dead son as part of some mind games then that’s the lowest of the low.
It's actually funny that people believe he was eating KFC
