Unbeaten Conor Benn is a fighter who is not often short of words regarding his natural rival in boxing and his soon-to-be next opponent, Chris Eubank Jr. The pairing has had choice words regarding each other over the years to much amusement to the British boxing public. However, the rivalry will come to blows when the pairing face off next month on October 8th at the 02 arena, London following their respective father epic feud in the 90s, who respectively were not short of words regarding each other. The pairing will fight at a catchweight of 157lbs with a rehydration clause on behalf of Eubank Jnr to rehydrate no more than 10lbs prior to the contest following the day before weigh-in.

Conor has questioned Chris Jnr what some within the industry have often asked to themselves regarding Chris Jnr. What has Chris Jnr actually done in his career? Which Benn questioned in a recent interview conducted by Matchroom Boxing featuring the pairing. Benn has pushed back on the common opinion that Eubank Jnr is an elite fighter, questioned what Chris Jnr’s most notable win but did concede that Chris Jnr is a good fighter.

“I think you’re a good fighter,” Benn told Eubank during a roundtable interview published on the Matchroom Boxing YouTube channel. “But I still think you’re the most underachieved fighter. One billion percent. What are you, 33? 32, 33—what have you done really?

“You beat up a washed-up DeGale. You lost to Billy Joe (Saunders). You lost to (George) Groves. Had another fight with Liam Williams. What have you actually done at the age of 33?

Chris responded in his traditional sharp fashion saying, “I’ve defeated … 32 opponents, The two losses I have on my record, points losses, close fights. What I’ve done is create my own lane, create my own name, walk my own path.”

“People know I’m the real deal,” Eubank added. “People know what I can do.”
