    It's a good matchup if you dislike Benn

    Its PPV so you won't see with with your standard subscription. Good fight but I don't think people wanted it yet.

    Seems like a 50-50 fight to me.

    Interesting matchup, not just because of their fathers, but because it should be a good fight.

    Correct. It's an absolute joke that'll be glorified.

    EXACTLY THIS ! Everything but the weight is loaded in Eubanks favour. Benn should have fought Harlem. As it stands there both cashing in off there fathers names and rivalry.

    It’s a cash grab between two fighters weight classes apart. Easy pickings by Hearn to grab millions from a casual audience.

    I know, I'm just saying it's a shame Americans won't care about such a big fight and how cool it is that it's linked with their fathers' rivalry.

    Eubanks will have to be on point with his weight cutting. Both have flaws but I can't see Conor knocking out Eubanks.

    Both are overrated as hell if we're talking about pure boxing skills but they're both great athletes so it's a really good fight.

    weird match up. a welter vs a super middleweight? a freak show.

    weight is too important in this sport. If eubank is not drained to death in the ring, then we will see why.

    You Brits will buy anything so long as you can get drunk watching a fight. Just look at these horrible fights being mentioned. The Fury /Chisora , Eubanks / Benn. These are horrible mismatch fight.

    Not sure what weight the fight will be at as I assume there will be some type of catchweight but I think it’s a stupid fight for Benn to take and he could get seriously hurt. Benn is a 147 pound fighter and not a big one at that like Spence or Jaron Ennis and he started at 140 pounds. Eubank is a physically strong tough Middleweight who can fight at Super Middleweight at world title level. Matchroom are being stupid again in matchmaking.

    Huge fight in Britain.

    156 apparently.

    Eubank has full months to make it. Shouldn't be an issue.
    I think Eubank is too big and good for Benn.
