    None of the sides look good in making this fight Twenty but if Eubank wants PPV money to feast on a relatively unproven welterweight then tough Titty he needs to make compromises and nobody should be sympathising with him.he’s done nothing for years and then gets a money grab like this it’s embarrassing tbh.

    The only things in Benn’s favour is age and hypothetical weight issues for Jnr in my eyes,everything else points to Eubank battering him.

    The only good thing about this fight is I see a lot of hype for Benn on social media. Hopefully this will be reflected in the odds so some decent money may be able to be made.

    Does anybody know what the point in this fight is?

    Eubank should be fighting Murata or GGG. Not Benn.

    Mate young CHRIS is 8/13 to beat a domestic level welterweight. I’ve not seen such ridiculous value since Mayweather macgreggor

    HOWEVER my acute boxing snide senses are tingling on this one and it feels like a set up job to manufacture a star in that little runt BENNE. I need to find out how much young CHRIS is going to be restricted AFTER the weighin before I commit any shekels.

    I’ve got a horrible feeling this one is going to turn into a bit of a freak show. Fcking Hearns ALWAYS has to make it about the numbers one way or another

    He doesn’t want those fights or he can’t get them for whatever reason maybe but it’s most likely he’s been sniffing for a PPV grab as shown by trying to coax another welterweight out in Brook for a Sky PPV before jumping over to DAZN to chase Benn..job done.

    I think he just comes across very arrogant and just generally not very likeable. Arrogance is great if you have charisma, personality, humour, wit etc to go with it, he has none of that, just a scowl mixed in with some small man syndrome. I don’t particularly like Eubank either but I expect him too and hope that he batters Benn

    Well said. He doesn’t have the weight to lose and the rehydration clause will be a factor too

    It will be something along the lines of "we have the right to cancel" but won't and agree a fine

    I hear what you are saying and to a degree totally agree with you.

    But i see Junior totally making the weight and completely blasting him out, it would not surprise me if CEJ does this in the first.

    Like his father he is a complete and ultimate thinker, and he will remember and think about the time CB attempted to make a name for himself with his "Who are you to talk about my life Spiel" to his dad....

    I will make my prediction right now, Eubank in 1 or 2.

    Two marvellous British talents facing off in a blockbuster. Enormous bout. First pay-per-view I’ll purchase since Fury Wilder 2018.

    Just watched an interview and Sims says Conor will need to drop about 14 pounds to make the weight lol more proof 160 would be fine

    Says he's gonna bring him in at 154-155 so he keeps his speed and agility

    On another note I've been told that eubank weighed in vs Williams at 159 with jeans and a Rolex. So maybe he can make the weight without too much issue. However, you have to assume he's about 175+ now, so he's got a minimum of 18lbs to lose in less than 8 weeks when already super shredded. How big a deal is that?

    Good man. It's only the price of a pizza (probably).
