Conor Benn and Chris Eubank Jr will finally settle one of British boxing’s biggest feuds in a catchweight fight later this year.
The sons of boxing legends Chris Eubank Sr and Nigel Benn are set to reignite an historic family rivalry that captivated England during the 1990s.
Benn and Eubank Sr faced off twice before the new millennium with Eubank winning their first bout to claim the WBO middleweight title in 1990 before a thrilling draw three years later.
Now their sons will follow in their footsteps in one of the most highly-anticipated fights of 2022.
