Tension in the first face to face between Eubank Jr. and Benn – World Boxing Association

Chris Eubank Jr. and Conor Benn participated in the press conference to present their fight on October 8, in London, England.

The showdown has a lot of sentimental value due to the fact that it embodies the great rivalry their fathers Chris Eubank and Nigel Benn had decades ago, which has generated a lot of expectation.

Filled with tension and words of complete self-confidence, the event was well attended by the press and is already beginning to heat up for the bout which, as the promoter says, has two fighters who were born rivals. 

The fight is agreed at 157 pounds, according to reports. It should be noted that Eubank has been campaigning at 168 recently, while Benn has been fighting at 147 pounds, a category in which he is WBA continental champion.
