"When I was champion, we defended the title every two months or less. Today, they're allowed to take half a year off because the subscription television channels need that long to build them up and advertise them.

"The reason todays champions aren't marketable is because they don't entertain. They don't take that step back when they have an opponent on the hook to draw a response from the crowd, both ringside and arm-chaired. It takes cajones and confidence," he reckons.

interesting.

I don't think there's a single boxer in history willing to give the guys who came after them their dues.

"When I was champion, we defended the title every two months or less."

2 or 3 times a year on average according to your record Chris, but go on and make up some other crap when you're ready.

He fought 10 fights in less than 12 months in '89-Jan '90. Amazing.

I think the tragic bout with Watson also took a lot out of Eubank. After that he lost an edge. I truly believe we never saw the best of him.

always enjoy listening to eubank interviews, especially now that hes retired and is willing to share more of the secrets to his style and why he was effective. i love his scientific approach to boxing.

some of his statements crack me up though, like how he apparently put 97,5% of his weight on his back leg. not 90 or 95. not even 97 or 98, exactly 97,5% lol. classic eubank.

He was going to fight Toney but Toney lost to RJJ. Everyone tries to blame other fighters for fights with RJJ not happening when in reality RJJ was happy fighting C- fighters.

Eubank posed a sterner challenge than a fat McCallum or past-it Hill.
