    Eubank ripping the **** outta baby benn in presser, he's so easy to wind up.
    Eubank also confirmed he can't rehydrate as much as he'd like.

    It's one thing saying it weeks away from the fight, it's quite another calling off a PPV show on the day. Besides, Hearn will probably bung him if he tries that :lol::eaea:

    That LV jacket Eubank wore was horrific.

    Kalle > chris, you were a teenager growing up back when your dad and benn.....


    Errr, no he was nowhere near being a teenager in the early to mid 90s , I guess math isnt his strong point, he shoulda tried working it out in grams :risas3:

    I thought Benn looked bigger than Eubank in the face-off.

    He's 100 % been bulking-up in advance of the date being announced.

    Looking forward to this, either Eubanks beat's Benn in a similar fashion to how he dealt with Nick Blackwell or the weight cut takes too much out of him and it's an all-out war, similar to the original Benn v Eubank fight.

    Although I think if Eubank cannot hurt Benn, he could be out-worked, especially if he resorts to the new style Roy Jones Jnr has been experimenting with in recent fights. The Eubank who was out-classing Spike, Blackwell and Doran should really walk through Benn at this stage in his career, but I don't think he's been that impressive or show that kind of form since the switch to Jones Jnr.

    I would prefer Eubank to win and to win with a devastating knockout in the first couple of rounds.

    Even Sky Sports have been showing clips from the face off and press conference today.

    Benn said he is moving up two weights when the fight isn't at 160 and he was tight at 147. There is also a rehydration clause imposed on Eubank, but Benn likes to ignore this. I really hope Eubank knocks him out.

    Benn is a complete overcompensating melt lol. Clear rich boy trying to act like what he thinks inner city kids are like.

    Eubank has grown on me since his fight with Williams. He is a relentless bell but I can't but help find him funny. That presser was hilarious.

    Eubanks has benn on strings

    I can see benn in pieces mentally before the first bell.

    Looking forward to seeing him get hurt
