    Default Conor Benn v Chris Eubank Jr?

    Conor Benn and Chris Eubank Jr call for historic fight 32 years after dads met.

    Chris Eubank and Nigel Benn fought over 30 years ago and the ring legends could pass down their rivalry to their sons as the pair have teased a future fight

    Three decades after their dads first met in the ring, Conor Benn and Chris Eubank Jr have teased a potential fight in the future.

    The pair's dads, Chris Eubank and Nigel Benn, first met in 1990 as Eubank extended his unbeaten record by knocking out Benn in a thrilling fight.

    Over 40,000 people attended Old Trafford to watch the rematch dubbed 'Judgement Day' three years later, which would end in a split draw.

    A widely discussed trilogy never took place, with the pair's hatred for each other marking one of the many great rivalries in British boxing history.

    But their rivalry could potentially be passed down to their sons, as Boxxer promoter Kalle Sauerland first teased the fight last December.

    "You know somewhere, some special night in the not too distant future Eubank v Benn the next generation will happen and we will be more than happy to make that happen," he wrote on Twitter.

    Eubank - who fights two weight classes above Benn - pushed himself closer to a world title shot by outpointing Liam Williams in a one-sided display on Saturday night.

    Benn reacted to Eubank's win against the Welshman by tweeting: "I fancy my chances at a catchweight".

    And Eubank admitted a fight against Benn in the future would be "crazy" for British boxing.

    "It's a fight that if it were to happen, it would be massive. It would be crazy, what fight fan wouldn't want to see it? It's two legends sons fighting each other," he said.

    "We're both doing big things in the boxing world. It doesn't make much sense right now. In a couple years, if Conor Benn fills out a little bit and I wanna have a bit of fun, we can get it on."

    Benn extended his unbeaten run to 20 fights by knocking out veteran Chris Algieri last December and called for a fight with the winner of Amir Khan vs Kell Brook next.

    But Eubank is doubtful of facing the 25-year-old until he achieves what he wants at middleweight.

    "If the fans wanna see it, if he can move up. What a fight that would be, that would be incredible. The two sons, Chris Eubank Jr. Conor Benn," Eubank added when talking with iFLTV.

    "The likelihood of it, I really doubt that it's gonna happen anytime soon. I see that as something that's probably gonna happen in years to come.

    "When I've done everything I want to do at middleweight and we want to have a bit of fun down the line, but who knows."

    I don’t have the interest in this really.

    Their fathers were at the top when they fought, they are not.

    It would be a friendly affair.

    Is every day April 1st in Conor Benn’s calendar? Or is he just plain desperate to make some cash? He’s done fuck all yet , and he thinks he can take the piss out of the sport! PATHETIC

    I do not understand it either, they are at different weights and trying to establish themselves. This is just trying to make money from their father's legacies without earning it.

    Smacks of desperation and lack of dignity from both if they pursue this.

    Absolutely detonated Van Heerden impressively today. Well, 'tonight'. He looks and very much sounds in the interview like a guy who knows it's time to step it up just a bit. Crowley v Lopez winner would be nice and will be a couple major shifts tonight at 147. Bring him to the States for a showcase and break out of the cocoon.

    Chris Eubank Jr has claimed he was the victim of a set up after a recent encounter with Conor Benn at the Sport Industry Awards on Saturday night.

    The sons of British boxing legends Chris Eubank Sr and Nigel Benn have long been linked with a crossover fight that would easily break the box office, despite the fact they are two weight classes apart right now.

    He revealed he was about to present the ‘Young Agency of the Year’ award, which was won by The Space Between agency, when he bumped into Benn backstage.

    However, he immediately knew something was up, as he insisted that there was no way their meeting could have taken place simply by accident.

    Eubank told iFL TV: “Yeah, we had a little chat.

    “I think they set it up, someone sneakily set it up.

    “Unbelievable that we were both backstage, both presenting awards at the exact same time.

    “And that sports awards, whoever manages that, they’re lucky that I’m not an idiot.

    “And they don’t know I’m not an idiot, and they don’t know he’s not an idiot.”

    Eubank also revealed his concerns that things could have gotten out of hand pretty quickly had they not handled things like mature responsible adults, and accused Benn of being ‘a hothead’.

    He added: “I mean, he is a hothead.

    “If I say something silly, he’s gonna, you know, but I’m not an idiot.

    “If I’m pushed, yeah [I could react], but I’m not gonna push anybody. I’m not gonna push anybody for no reason – for clout or for an Instagram video.

    “It could’ve easily kicked off at the awards show, right before we were about to walk on stage.”

    Asked if he could reveal the details of their conversation, he replied: “Nothing, he came over to me, shook my hand.

    “He asked me about the Canelo fight, it was small talk.

    “He was talking to someone else for a second and I was thinking about all the stuff that’s been said over the past couple of months and I started laughing.

    “He said, ‘What are you smirking about?’

    “I said, ‘Listen, me and you can make a lot of money in the future.’ He said on the fight that he comes in 20lbs heavier than what he weighs in at.

    “He was basically trying to say that he could physically fight, the weight difference wouldn’t be an issue.”
