    I feel like we will know if it will be a decent scrap within the 1st 2 rounds.

    Will they just have a pitty pat spar with zero risks until round 12?
    Will they have a war from the opening bell?
    Will it just be a beat down either way?
    Could it start slow then build into something interesting?

    I have no idea tbh, it's a very strange fight with too many variables.

    Benn looks much improved and is punching with venom.
    Jr has been playing cards and doing f all squandering his natural talent.

    Still want Jr to win tbf, but would not bet my house on this one.

    I do think Jr would run rather than get KO'd lol, so if anyone is getting KO'd its probably Benn.

    I'm expecting them to make lots of money. Two boxers who shouldn't be near a professional ring.

    Eubank Jr knocks Benn out late and that is his most likely game plan.

    To be cautious and behind the jab early, to not hold his feet too much and let Benn come to him.

    Then past the 6th he will probably look to step it up and go through the gears. Benn will gas late as he will expend so much energy going for that early knock out. We all know that will be his strategy.

    Very cagey for a lot of the fight,I fancy Jr to get the job done, he should be getting the bloody job done

    Still a silly fight, but Benn looks ready and fit, he will come for it, just can't see him getting past Jr

    Expect Hearn to keep saying 'he's never known interest/hype for a fight like this' despite the fact hardly any of the general public are speaking about it or even know when it's on or how to watch it.

    This is how I see it

    I think Benn comes out like a lunatic in the opening rounds.

    Went to football yesterday, and in my group of around 25, when we got on to this fight, only 3 others knew it was happening this Saturday.

    They’re all casuals/Josh Warrington fans too.

    I can see Benn's corner throwing towel in in the second half of fight

    There will defo be an agreement with the ref to jump in before he gets actually knocked out if it is looking bad for him

    A stoppage he can protest so that Hearn can spin it as not a real stoppage

    Why would a pro ref agree to this

    I think it all depends if Benn can drag Eubank into a brawl in the early rounds. Eubank just needs to use his skill and pick him off on the way in. Late stoppage for Eubank is the one I’d probably go with, but I ain’t putting no money on it.

    If Eubank makes the weight for this then I can see a repeat of his fight with Degale only the shoe being on the other foot with Benn hurting him on several occasions when he lands. The durability goes in the bin when a fighter dehydrates like that and he's knocking on a bit.

    Eubank is the better fighter and I'm shocked that he's compromised on his advantages by meeting the clauses for this fight. He's clearly purely motivated by the money now. His dad retired relatively early and I can see the same for him.
