We see many fathers influence theirs sons in boxing. Was this the case with Benn or Eubank?
No idea but snr regularly posts on here as bulldog24 he will let u know all about this in due course.
I would actually love it if Bulldog was Snr. Would also love it if Miniq was Fury.
English went to the US as a teenager and was never in a boxing relationship with his dad.
Benn was an army boxer,again dont think his dad had any influence.
Aye - Eubank went to live with his mother in New York - as his Dad couldn't cope with him (shoplifting, burglary etc.). I don't think he had boxed before going to the US. I find it ironic that Eubank cultivated a posh, establishment persona when he was initially an unheralded outsider - whereas, Benn had the threatening, "Dark Destroyer" image but, iirc, he had a decent amateur pedigree and was backed / seen as a good bet for a great future from the start of his professional career.
Benn had a good, loving, close-knit upbringing.
Eubank was the one from a broken home and nothing.
believe it or not
What was Chris dad name? I know Nigels dad name was Dixon.
