On October 8 live on DAZN, Chris Eubank Jr. faces Conor Benn to settle a longstanding family rivalry (check for regions).
Chris Eubank Sr. and Conor’s father Nigel fought twice back in the 1990s, with Eubank emerging victorious in the first and a split draw the result in the second clash in 1993.
Since then, a number of the Eubank and Benn families have gone to forge boxing careers of their own, not least Chris Eubank Jr. and Conor Benn.

However for the Eubank family, Chris Sr.’s sons Nathaniel Wilson and Sebastian Eubank also launched a career, though neither matched Chris Jr.’s achievements.
Wilson 8-2-1 (2 KO) last fought on 30 January 2020, when he lost to Stu Greener, and made his debut in 2016 with a victory over Silvije Kebet.
Sebastian, who died last year, fought once in 2018 and then in 2019, winning both.
Chris’s cousin Harlem boasts a credible track record, beating Eliot Chavez this summer, and first fought in 2017 when he defeated Anto Nakic.
Chris Eubank has more than a decade’s experience, with a 32-2 (23KO) record earned when he beat Kiril Psonko on his debut in November 2011, and most recently he beat Liam Williams in February this year.
