Talk:Chris Eubank

Were the comments meant to explain that Eubank lost his first amateur bouts in part because of the "peek a boo" style that didn't fit him? And then began to win when taught to fight at a distance? If so, the formatting should probably be changed to:

Amateur Record (19-7)

  • Lost his first five amateur fights in 1982-1983 (Early on Eubank had been taught a "peek-a-boo" style from Maximo Pierret, which didn't suit his body structure. He was then taught to fight at a distance by Patrick Ford--a range suiting him more.)
  • 1984 Empire State Games, Silver-Medalist (losing to Aaron Davis at Welterweight)
  • 1984 USA Golden Gloves, Semi-Finalist
  • 1984 NYC Spanish Golden Gloves Winner (beating Dennis Milton at Light-Middleweight)

Reverted January 3rd update. I don't know why you would choose spar partner over sparring partner, the more proper term. Besides, you already made this edit once before in your myriad of edits.--Matt Tegen 00:25, 4 Jan 2006 (CST)

Back to "spar mates" again I see, and why do you keep moving and deleting spaces in the sections. Attention, right?--Matt Tegen 17:17, 6 Jan 2006 (CST)

Highest paid boxer out of Heavyweights

Can anyone vouch for the statement as written. I plead ignorant on this one.--Matt Tegen 11:19, 5 Apr 2006 (CDT)
