    I think it’s a good move for Benn. He wins he is a star. And he wins if Eubank isn’t right at the weight.

    There’s at least 8-10 fighters a WW who would end him, better to have the weight excuse than to go in with an Ortiz or Ennis

    If Chris Eubank Jr is not completely drained and physically destroyed after sitting in a sauna for 4 - 5 days wrapped in plastic and rain gear leading up to the weigh-in, he easily defeats Conor Benn.

    I'll watch it but DAZN PPV lol, so x amount per month plus now even more on top to watch a British non-title fight, what a service

    Or he doesn't try that hard to lose the weight and just drops a million of the several he is going to earn.

    Thought it was just bluster by Hearn and Benn about fighting Eubank but money talks eh.It would be a monumental embarrassment if he gets beat by Benn regardless of weight issues.

    Yeah I don't particularly want to pay to watch this but I most likely will get properly sucked in by all the hype. Not clear at this stage, just seems a complete mismatch to me.

    I don't see how BENNE - who has beaten nobody at 147 - can hang with a world level 160/168lber who is just coming into his prime like young CHRIS.

    Young CHRIS ate bombs for twelve rounds off a 195lb george groves, how the hell is a feather fisted little midget welterweight - whos best win is some shot to pieces generic old name value fighter - going to trouble him?

    I'm going to be lumping on Eubank KO unless it comes out that they've put some snidey clause in there restricting his IN RING weight. wouldn't put anything past hearns and sons but lets see how this one pans out

    Hopefully Benn gets taught a lesson though

    Neither will ever win a world title. This is as good as it gets for them. I’m up for the madness. May buy depending on the price and if there is a free month of DAZN included with anything else worth watching that month (unlikely I know).

    Strange one as I don’t like Conor at all. But loved Nigel

    Because Nigel would fight anyone and not let a promoter stop him. Whatever we think about Hearn, Conor is ultimately the one with the career and this is how it's turning out. Cash-out before he fought anyone decent.
