Predictions

Benn, who now competes at 147 pounds and is in line for a shot at the world title, is willing to lift his weight to 157 pounds to face Eubank Jr. Benn’s style might provide issues for Eubank, who enjoys showcasing his impressive abilities.

It is anticipated that Eubank will use his advantage of 4.5 reach to annoy Benn and counter him. Benn will be dangerous in the first rounds due to his hitting strength, therefore Eubank’s composure and skill will be crucial.

When it advances past the sixth round, it is anticipated that the balance will flip to Eubank’s advantage. Overall, Benn and Eubank are slightly outmatched, and in the title matches, where “NXT Gen” may have the opportunity to defeat “The Destroyer,” Benn’s aggression will be used against Eubank.

Quotes from the fighters

Conor Benn vs Chris Eubank Jr
Chris Eubank Jr, Conor Benn and trainers attend the Eubank Jr/Benn Press Conference at Glaziers Hall

Conor Benn: “This fight is for the legacy and was an opportunity I felt I couldn’t pass up. “To me this fight is personal, it’s more than titles and rankings, this is unfinished business between our families!

“My team and I had other options on the table as I’m currently ranked top five with all governing bodies at welterweight and no doubt that I’m looking for a world championship fight very soon, but this fight is embedded with so much history and I know it’s one the public really want to see.”

Chris Eubank Jr: “I grew up watching their legendary battles and always wanting to emulate that, to find my own arch nemesis. Could this now be Conor Benn? We will find out. He has walked the same path as I have. I know his struggle. Living in the shadow of a legend and trying to break out of that shadow and make his own name. If he can beat me, his name will be made, and he will never walk in his father’s shadow again.”
