Nearly forgot it's happening..

The only way dazn promotes this is through social media

anyone that follows the two boxers, hearn/matchroom.. Bellew :OhYes: ..

You don't follow those and maybe one or two more, then it's screwed..

IFL might post a bit and a few other boxing fan pages out there ...

Eubank Jr: ‘Usually I Go Eight Weeks Without Sex For a Fight … Conor Benn Gets Two’

“I’m not going to kill myself in this training camp,” Eubank said in a roundtable interview alongside Conor Benn published on the Matchroom Boxing YouTube channel. “Usually I go eight weeks without sex. I abstain for eight weeks. Week by week, the longer you withhold, you build testosterone. I’m going to abstain for two weeks for you. Canelo, Golovkin, they get eight weeks. [Billy Joe] Saunders gets four weeks. Conor Benn gets two.

“Jake Paul gets one week. So you’re not at the bottom of the barrel, but you’re close.”


Eubank’s comments drew a stern rebuke from Benn..

“I don’t really care,” Benn retorted. “No one asked you about your sex drive and what gets you going…he’s talking rubbish.”

Could be bollox, mind games etc, allthough I'm sure he said months ago the weight would be the lowest he's been since his teens, Maybe he thought he would do it ok and is now realising that weight loss and being in your 30's isn't so easy, especially for a guy that always looks ripped anyway.

If it’s true then I hope they go after him given he was doing those KFC eating videos.

I’d imagine there’s a clause somewhere with a financial forfeit but nobody can physically force him to fight.

My mate texted me earlier today to check j still wanted a ticket and was about half an hour away from handing money over for tickets.

Nobody should force him to fight but if he’s pulling out due to weight after he’s openly been munching fried chicken a couple of times then he deserves to be fined as he hasn’t taken it seriously.

I want to say that it is mind games, but Sr mentioning his dead son doesn't sound like a game.

How can Senior pull him tho? What legal authority does he have to do that or is Junior scared of upsetting the old man?

Bizarre. Hearn will be spitting absolute flames.

I hope they pull it. Completely wrong making up weights, rehydration clauses, etc. Whoever wins is irrelevant.

It should be a fair match between boxers at their natural weights, still surprised the BoC gave the go ahead to the weight clauses etc.
Maybe Junior can't make the stipulated weight so is using it as an excuse to pull out, especially with his comments on the face off about not doing a proper camp etc.

Eubank should have called match room bluff and got the fight at 160 in the first place. Benn/Matchroom need the Eubank more to push DAZN buys. Jr hasn't posted anything on socials, I'm guessing his phone is blowing up.

It would be low for Eubank to be using his sons death as a publicity tool ... I can`t imagine he is that skint.

I`d like to think he is genuine; not that i`d imagine they`d cancel the show now.

Fights going ahead.

It appears Sr. was taking about it himself.

Not on behalf of the team.

Both boxers are still in their camps.
