    Still think it's a terrible fight.. With a high chance of serious injury. God knows what silly rehydration clauses Eubank is gunna need to stick to and Benn is likely to be bloated up in weight, slow and there for the taking. Weight classes exist for a reason.

    The weight will play its part here

    It's not looking good for Benn

    Its a pure circus.

    But a circus I'll be watching.

    I hope Benn wins, but can't see how to be honest. It's not that I rate eubank that highly, or Benn that low either, but the size difference is a huge issue.

    As the old saying goes, a good big one, always beats a good small one

    It’s a strange one. Nostalgia sells, it is a big fight. And one I will buy myself.

    If Eubank can safely make the weight and the rehydration he wins. Comfortably.

    It’s all the unknowns that make this interesting.

    What weights this happening at? If it's light middle then I'd actually take Benn anything above n Benn gets twatted

    They are saying 157 but with rehydration. Given Eubank is in his 30s and has fought at 168 it’s hard to see how that doesn’t take something out of him

    DAZN PPV - how much is Eddie charging us for this freak fest ? £24.95
    When you add in the cost of the electricity it's over £60 now a days !

    Finally a fight confirmed from Matchroom on the Autumn schedule.

    Fears that Eubank Jr is dead on the scales. If he is then Conor Benn has a real chance of winning.

    My mate Brian Clay from school reckoned he was Muhammed Ali's son. A long time ago like.

    But here's the thing. I've also got a mate called Joe, who probably watched an episode of Frazier at some point.

    Let's get the fight made!
