“Benn does now not know what it’s like to battle at this stage”


By the use of Brian Webber: Chris Eubank Jr. says he expects Conor Benn to battle cautiously early on against him in their 157-lb catchweight battle on October 8th on account of he’s under no circumstances fought at “this stage” previous to.

Now not most straightforward is Benn (21-0, 14 KOs) moving up in weight ten pounds from 147 to 157, on the other hand he’s going via the principle top quality opponent of his profession.

Up until now, Benn has been matched against older fighters that weren’t a risk to beating him. No longer probably the most opponents Benn has faced all over his six-year professional profession had any pop in their punches to worry him.

Eubank Jr (32) -2, 23 KOscan punch, and if he’s now not drained from making weight, he’s going to be more than a handful for Conor.

He’s going to be very wary early on on account of he doesn’t know what I am and what it’s like to battle at this stage, so he has to truly really feel it out,” said Eubank Jr to Matchroom Boxing about Conor Benn.

“If he does move whole steam ahead from round one, I’m going to be very impressed. So we’ll see,” said Eubank Jr.

“I wish to win this battle in a very good taste,” said Benn. “There’s such a lot on the line proper right here. I will’t lose this battle. That’s the best way through which I take a look at this. I merely can’t lose it.

“There’s quite a lot of on the line proper right here for me to move, ‘You know what?’ I merely can’t. I’ve got to win this,” said Conor.

“It’s been so tricky for me over the last month to check out and keep my mouth shut,” said Eddie Hearn. “With the Eubanks, its all the time tricky. This battle is so massive all through such a large amount of generations.

“My dad promoted both a kind of fights [between Chris Eubank Sr and Nigel Benn]. I watched each and every fights.”

“157 is the weight I have to get all of the approach right down to, which is a weight that I haven’t been since I was 18 years earlier,” said Eubank Jr. “Is it a priority? I guess you must say that.

“It’s further of an issue. I will make that weight. It’s merely how onerous it’ll be. I don’t know, on the other hand I will make it on account of I’m a professional. In that sense, I will be at a drawback on account of he’s going to be completely rehydrated,” said Eubank Jr.
