Why does Chris Eubank jnr make it so hard to like him ? Just when I started getting used to his antics,over confidence and his daddy issues that see him trying to act like his father at every opportunity he has now went into overdrive to get on my tits.
Recently we have had Chris snr call out one of the best and complete boxers in the world GGG saying in his funny voice :
“I don’t see anything like Chris’s speed or power “
This will be GGG with a 92% KO ratio , the same GGG that has Canelo Alverez running scared, vacating his WBC world title to avoid fighting him for it compare that to Chris Eubank jnr,a guy who was schooled by Billy Joe Saunders and was also rocked a couple of times in his fight with Spike O’Sullivan. As I said at the start Iam a Eubank fan and usally I like boxers with arrogance but Jnr like his father seems to push buttons and can wynd me up at times,but unlike his dad he has not backed it up as of yet, arrogance is a luxury you have to earn and Eubank Jnr is nowhere near being able to pull off his egotistical shit. In the same week as calling out GGG the Eubanks announced there plans to have Jnr fight in the Olympics ,fuck me the beginning of the week he’s beating GGG the end of the week he’s intending to go fight ameteurs, to me they are embarrassing to listen to, most of the time when they are on TV interviews I watch through my fingers as I cringe at every unfounded claim made .
Don’t get me wrong I think a lot of it is a act to get his name out there,there is no such thing as bad press in boxing, his names out there even if it’s just to laugh at these outrageous comments. The thing that gets to me is Chris Snr,who’s had his time in the spotlight pushing in on his sons time, to begin with I thought he was shielding his son form the pressures of the media but now I think he’s riding on Jnrs wave and making him a bit of laughing stock at times. I think what people have to remember is that Chris Eubank Snr ducked a lot fight, yes we had Benn etc but there where big swerves inbetween so to think he will put Jnr in the ring with GGG as he is the now is beyond ludicrous .
Will Jnr ever be humble, no I think the best we can hope for is he moves on from being the pricks prick , that title should stay with his dad .
