I was going to run a story about this but I decided to do a fanpost instead due to the lengths of the quotes from Eubank. Not sure there's much to say about it really but worth mentioning I thought.
Quite simply Chris Eubank has mentioned in an interview with SkySports that he dreams of a return to boxing and has mentioned it to ex-foe Nigel Benn.
Here's what he had to say:
"I'm a light-heavyweight now and when I look at 47-year-old Bernard Hopkins I think, 'if he can do it, why can't I'?
To get back into the gym? Wow. To be hit again, to be hit in the chest, to be able to withstand a shot to the face, that is a dream for me, it is my fantasy. I was even talking to Nigel Benn and I said: 'Come on Kid, we've got to get it back on.
It would be my fantasy for me to actually box again, especially on the same bill as my son. First I would need public backing. I would never want to do anything to compromise the respect I seem to have as a boxer."
Personally think it won't happen but nice to see the fire still burns with Eubank. Don't really wish to see the fight fighting at his age after such a long break could mean some serious injuries.
What you guys think?
