    he’s 31 , not proved himself above British/euro level, he’s changed promoters and trainers like having breakfast which tells you something .. he only really has his fathers name and is using it to try to leverage easy big money.. through being fortunate to not have to do a proper job he has been able to become a fitness fanatic but the top end of the business know his true worth and whilst tv are happy with the name they have never been sure about his substance. Like most privileged kids they have an over inflated value of their ability and worth..

    I think Khiowatta is spot on. Eubank Jr doesn't have great skills, lightning reflexes, devastating power or any particular size advantages. If your biggest asset is your stamina then you need to be pressuring guys & Chris Jr hasn't been doing that. 31 is pretty old to start to become a pressure fighter though.

    Why does anyone rate this guy? His engine is his only notable asset. You may be in your feelings about BJS but his appraisal of this guy's mediocrity is spot on.

    "Okay, so the last "takeover" didn't work out too well but I'm sure this takeover will.", said nobody except Jr.
    Chris, we've heard this kind of shti 20 times before. Beat an elite or highly rated fighter and get back to us. All the best.

    I think Jones would and will obviously have had a good influence on Eubank, but I doubt it's enough to turn him into a completely new and improved fighter.

    He would have only had that effect if he had a similar style and similar abilities that Jones had.

    The best thing for Eubank is to become the best pressure fighter he came become. If he's had to move back down to MW to feel he can't be bullied, then he obviously is a confidence fighter - and confidence athletes are difficult to fully reconfigure.

    I want to see him do well for the sake of the division, but I'm not his biggest fan.
