    Let’s remember that Eubank Jr defeated a James DeGale who was the reigning WBC Super Middleweight champion. Benn asked for it so all I can say is watch what you wish for. I think this is highly irresponsible by Matchroom.

    So Eubank Jr did not beat the crap out of James DeGale who had regained the WBC Super Middleweight world title fight in his previous fight. Get your facts right before engaging me.

    Think eubank will make the weigh in looking like he has aids ..if he doesn't make the limit and the fight goes ahead eubank will stop him

    Or he does make weight and absolutely gets his ass kicked cos he would essentially be a walking corpse...easier to go up multiple weights than drop down them...unless your a fat twat

    To be fair De gale was made for him at that time, skilful but lazy who liked to take time off in rounds. At that time Eubank had great work rate and got him at the right time.
    I think Eubanks work rate has dropped since then, I don’t see Benn causing him too many problems however.

    Maybe maybe not. The point being Eubank Jr defeated the guy holding the world title who gave it up to fight him.

    Degale was completely shot when he fought Eubank and Degale also never ever held the WBC SMW belt but had vacated the IBF belt after the Truax fight,when Degale fought Eubank it was for the vacant IBO belt iirc. I agree highly irresponsible by the BBBOC and Matchroom.

    I think this is a stupid mismatch.

    Depends on if there’s any kind of rehydration clause in place. For me that’s the only thing that gives Benn a chance which makes me think there may be.

    Mathroom is sacrificing Benn like they did with Kell Brook against Golovkin.

    Oh dear :duh Degale apart from never holding the WBC belt also fought Fidel Munoz prior to Eubank who had only 1 win in his previous 6 fights so certainly no titles on the line in that fight either .

    I see.

    I wasn't too aware of Benns potential, or lack thereof.

    Thank you kind sir.
