Agreed here. It's not the punches. The thought of losing another lad has ruined him.
Your mate Hearn trying to send in roided up fighters to fight his son can't help.
That's exactly what it is.
Chris has always been eccentric. But this behaviour is the cause of his son passing and Chris thinking he could lose another.
All the sympathy in the world for him and his situation but let’s not kid ourselves that mental health issues weren’t underlying with Eubank from day 1. Total oddball who’s finally tipped.
It's like they're filming in a portacabin. Eubank seems off his nut and ready to strangle the guy. The interviewer seems oblivious to this. All the while they're decked out in utterly ridiculous clobber. Such a weird video.
I tried to watch the full podcast but couldn't. It's exploitative and Eubank is just being super weird.
Throwback to a classic bit of Eubank Snr.
Yeah, this interview is disturbing. I hope somehow intervenes or at least tries to keep Sr. from getting in front of the cameras.
full interview is just as bizarre
I've met a few schizos who acted similar to chris in that interview. The weird tiks etc.
If it's not because he's coked/drugged up, I really fear for the guy.
Why was this released?!
This is obviously a situation where you finish the full interview, thank Chris for his time, then out of respect for him immediately delete the footage.
Yup, that ain't Chris just being possibly punchy or class A 'ing. There's possibly something deeper happening there. Doubt it's schiz at his age though.
I'm just hoping it's not the start of something that can come with age and is untreatable....
First off, I wouldn't discount that he is on strong medication.
He was such an enigma. Off topic but one thing I never understood looking at the old footage he seems really spooked by Collins taking a hypnotist in training for their fight. What was that all about? Eubank was a proven fighter at a high level and really had nothing to fear from Collins but he was totally intimidated. Why? He has a hypnotist, so what? You are a proven world operator and should have the confidence to go in there fully confident of beating any version of him. Never understood why he was so spooked by that.
Get well soon senior! You entertained us in and out of the ring and bought character into British boxing that others followed…
