Toen was hij dus al 18 jaar oud. Zijn debuut op een groot toernooi was in in een casino. Hij moest toen tegen Tim Brown wie hij zeer makkelijk versloeg er zouden nog 10 andere gevechten komen die ook makkelijk gewonnen werden door Eubank.
Chris Eubank won het middelgewicht kampioenschap door Nigel Benn te verslaan. Dat was het spannendste duel van Eubank allertijden volgens de media, hij won die wedstrijd op punten die gegeven waren door de jury.
Om de titel te verdedigen versloeg hij de Canadees Dan Sherry na 10 rondes, daarna verdedigde hij zijn titel opnieuw alleen deze keer tegen zijn landgenoot: Gary Stretch hij was in 6 rondes knock-out geslagen door Eubank.
Ook een andere landgenoot genaamd: Michael Watson moest 2 keer zijn meerdere erkennen aan Chris. Hij had hierna een statistiek van 28 gewonnen en 0 verloren.
Nadat hij bij de gewone middelgewichten alles gewonnen had wat je kon winnen stapte hij over naar het Super Middelgewicht. Een rematch tegen Watson vond plaats in waarbij Watson bijna fataal geblesseerd raakte.
Eubank won zijn eerste Super-Middelgewicht titel dus. In de volgende verdediging van de wereldtitel moest hij tegen de Zuid-Afrikaan: Thulani Malinga boksen, het werd geen Knock-out voor Eubank maar hij won gemakkelijk op punten: Na deze wereldtitel kwam het liedje The Best van Tina Turner uit hij vond het liedje zo goed dat hij gebruikte als introductie-liedje.
Door dit liedje werd hij vaak uitgefloten door het publiek, dit kwam ook door het weinige respect dat hij toonde naar andere boksers toe.
Nadat hij 6 keer de titel wist te houden moest hij tegen een oude bekende: Nigel Benn zij dat hij Eubank maar egoisist vond die een enorme opschepper was.
Hetwas een spannend duel en ruim Ondanks dat velen denken dat Benn had moeten winnen eindigde dat duel in een gelijkspel. De volgende tegenstander was de grote Duitser: Graciano Rocchigiani, het was in Duitsland zelf, het publiek floot hem dus harder uit dan normaal.
Ook dit was weer een spannend duel, toch won de Brit opnieuw en was nog nooit verslagen. Hij hield deze titel nog eens 5 keer en was dus 10 jaar ongeslagen tot 18 februari eraan kwam, waarin hij voor het eerst verloor.
Dit was tegen de Ier Steve Collins. Hij ging niet Knock-out, maar verloor zeer gemakkelijk op punten van de jury.
He held the WBO middleweight and super-middleweight titles, and is ranked by BoxRec as the fourth best British super-middleweight boxer of all time.
He reigned as world champion for over five years, was undefeated in his first ten years as a professional, and remained undefeated at middleweight.
His world title contests against fellow Britons Nigel Benn and Michael Watson helped British boxing ride a peak of popularity in the s, with Eubank's eccentric personality making him one of the most recognisable celebrities of the period.
In his final two years of boxing he challenged then-up and coming contender Joe Calzaghe in a bid to reclaim his WBO super-middleweight title, with a victorious Calzaghe later claiming that it was the toughest fight of his whole career.
In the rematch, Eubank was stopped for the first and only time in his career. Eubank is credited for his bravery in the ring, in which he was able to take considerable amounts of punishment from power punchers en route to his victories and defeats, and for this he is said to have a "granite" chin.
From two months to six years old he was raised in Jamaica. On his return to England, he lived in Stoke Newington , Dalston , Hackney and then Peckham , in a largely impoverished environment.
He attended Northwold Primary School in Upper Clapton, Bellingden Junior School, and then Thomas Calton Secondary School in Peckham, from where he was suspended eighteen times in one year and then expelled, despite claiming he was gallantly trying to protect other children from bullies.
When he was 16, his father sent him to New York in the U. Eubank made a fresh start in New York, battling drug, alcohol and shoplifting addictions to attend church and school.
Eubank became obsessed with boxing training and went to the gym every day, even working as caretaker to pay his way.
He writes in his autobiography that his drive to succeed in boxing came through his drive to become an accepted individual, largely caused by subjective bullying from his elder brothers.
He made his professional debut at the Atlantis Hotel and Casino against Tim Brown, shortly after his 19th birthday. Although his next 10 fights went largely unnoticed, then in February he made brief headlines in defeating Jamaican Anthony Logan in an undercard match to a Nigel Benn -headlined show.
Benn was arguably the biggest rising star in European sport at the time and Logan had come closest to beating the power-punching Benn in what was Benn's most memorable clash to date.
Eubank had already made Brighton in England his adopted hometown and set his sights on Benn, believing he could beat him.
Later in the year, he knocked out Renaldo Dos Santos in precisely 20 seconds including the count. Eubank would defend the title successfully against Dan Sherry in a fight cut short by a headbutt, for which Eubank was penalised 2 points but still won on points over the 9 completed rounds , fellow Briton Gary Stretch and finally in an excellent match with another fellow Briton, Michael Watson , fighting him to a narrow round majority decision in Eubank's favour.
This concluded Eubank's career as a middleweight, with a 28—0 record. A rematch with Watson for the vacant WBO super-middleweight title took place in September , in which Watson suffered a near-fatal injury.
Eubank was behind on all scorecards after 10 rounds, and was knocked down 18 seconds from the end of the round. He rose from the canvas being given only a standing four-count instead of eight to unleash a devastating uppercut to Watson's jaw right at the end of the round, knocking Watson's head and neck backwards into the ring ropes.
The bell sounded to end the round as soon as Watson was up from the count. It was still obvious to all observers — and to Eubank himself — that he needed a knockout to win: Soon after the fight Watson collapsed in his corner.
His condition may have been worsened by delay in receiving medical attention: Following the fight, Eubank contemplated quitting the sport. Commentator Reg Gutteridge said, in the moment, he had, "never seen a more dramatic end to a world title fight".
Eubank later reflected on the aftermath: However, I needed to work and so I carried on and I won most of my fights on decisions.
And I blamed myself, after all, it was me who threw the punch. Eubank was particularly noted for his confidence, concentration, composure, and extravagant behaviour, and antics that included a vault over the top-rope into the ring before each fight.
His trademark theme tune was Tina Turner's Simply the Best. He would often engage in posturing particularly between rounds of fights.
Eubank was by now presented as something of a "man you love to hate" figure in the British tabloid press because of his perceived arrogance and for his singularly unconventional sense of style.
In boxing circles he enjoyed even less popularity, having once referred to the sport as a 'mug's game' on national television This was a selective quote — Eubank had actually been discussing the seedier side of the sport, such as the beatings taken by journeyman fighters for small sums of money, or boxers that were lied to and ripped off by promoters.
Now the holder of a second title, Eubank relinquished his middleweight title and concentrated on defending his new crown at the higher weight of 12 st.
After the Watson tragedy Eubank never again showed any desire to knock opponents out, preferring to retain his title through points victories.
Nigel Benn moved up to super middleweight and became WBC champion. In the rivals would engage in another contest named 'Judgement Day' watched by a reported million people and fought an exciting contest — albeit less brutal than their first — to a draw.
Don King had negotiated the contracts so that he would own both the winner and the loser of Eubank v Benn 2. Barry Hearn claimed that, as a draw was not written into the contract, Eubank was free to sign a new deal with him instead of King.
He did — and Benn also did not sign for King, on the same pretext. Eubank won an eliminator for his old title against Jose Ignacio Barruetabena, as well as a win over Bruno Ruben Godoy.
A rematch with Collins took place in Cork, Ireland, and Eubank lost again by a surprisingly narrow split decision. He announced his retirement from the ring in October After Steve Collins withdrew from his WBO super-middleweight title defence against Joe Calzaghe and unexpectedly retired in October , Calzaghe was matched against Eubank for the vacant title with eleven days notice.
Eubank had been scheduled to box at light-heavyweight on the undercard. Eubank was knocked down twice and lost on points to Calzaghe, but saw his popularity rise as a result of managing to finish the fight against his more fancied opponent.
Eubank floored Thompson in the fourth round but, as in the first Steve Collins fight, failed to press home his advantage.
The fight went the distance, with Thompson's strength and durability eventually telling in the later rounds.
Thompson won by unanimous decision, but the closeness of the fight was reflected in the scoring, with two of the three judges giving the fight to Thompson by a single point.
A rematch was quickly arranged for three months later and they again fought for the WBO cruiserweight championship in what turned out to be Eubank's last fight.
Warren gave Eubank until 5pm on 25 September. Eubank fought at the Echo Arena on 25 October in a scheduled 8 round fight. Eubank lost his unbeaten record when he lost a split decision to Saunders.
The bout went the distance, with the experienced Saunders controlling the first six rounds with his footwork, elusive style and technical boxing ability, as Eubank was mostly inactive, with many speculating to him being over cautious due to nervousness and 'stage fright' as it was his first major title bout of his professional career.
Regardless, from round seven onward Eubank took control with a much higher punch output, this resulted in the two young boxers brawling and trading hard shots for the rest of the fight.
In the twelfth round, Eubank came out gunning for the knockout but was unable to get it. The early inactivity turned out to be the deciding factor as Saunders was victorious, a , and winner.
At the time of stoppage, Eubank was ahead on all three judges scorecards , , In round 2, an accidental clash of heads caused a cut above Chudinov's left eye.
Eubank spent the rest of the fight landing power shot combinations and breaking Chudinov down. After the win, Eubank sought a rematch with Saunders, "This result is redemption and I'm back.
And I want that rematch, Billy Joe Saunders. I'm coming for you. The fight however did not take place. After a that was mostly inactive, Eubank signed to promoter Eddie Hearn under the Matchroom Sport banner.
It was also announced that veteran trainer Adam Booth has been added to the team to co-train Eubank . His first fight following his signing with Matchroom was a bout against American Tony Jeter, making his debut on Sky Sports on 24 October.
Following the bout, Eubank was stripped of the interim WBA middleweight title due to his inactivity since winning it.
The fight throughout had the pace set by Eubank Jr, however O'Sullivan showed great resilience to Eubank's continuous hard shots, particularly uppercuts.
At the end of the 7th round, O'Sullivan's corner retired their fighter, who had sustained a perforated eardrum.
Immediately after Eubank defeated O'Sullivan, Hennessey Sports announced that they had won the purse bids and the rights to stage Eubank vs.
Nick Blackwell for Blackwell's British middleweight title. The fight was shown live on Channel 5. Following the eighth round, the elder Eubank instructed Eubank to stop hitting Blackwell in the head.
Tom Doran was announced as Eubank Jr's opponent on 19 May. Eubank had continued to climb up the ladder since joining Matchroom, having achieved a ranking of number two by the WBA and number three by the WBC.
Doran was down once in the 3rd round and three times in the 4th as the referee waved off the fight. Eubank called out Gennady Golovkin in the post fight interview.
It was announced on 12 August, Eubank would make a mandatory defence of his British middleweight title against fellow British and undefeated Commonwealth and WBO Inter-Continental middleweight champion Tommy Langford after promoter Frank Warren won a purse bid to stage the fight.
Throughout , Eubank made it clear that he wanted to challenge undefeated unified middleweight champion Gennady Golvokin.
Quinlan won the then-vacant IBO title defeating former world champion Daniel Geale in October via knockout in round two. The date of the fight was confirmed to be 4 February with the venue being at the Lee Valley VeloPark , Olympic Park , in London    .
He saw an opportunity to fight for a world title and took it. If he can win the world title, then he will negotiate with other champions.
Despite having not previously fought at super-middleweight, the December WBC ranking update had Eubank at number seven, previously being number two at middleweight.
The reason being there was little to no promotion, with the fight being only weeks away. I have a feeling it's going to get pulled.
On fight night, Eubank stopped Quinlan in round 10 in a fairly one-sided fight to win the IBO super-middleweight title.
The fight was stopped by referee Howard John Foster, 2 minutes and 7 seconds of round 10 after seeing Quinlan backed up against the ropes being hit with continuous head shots.
After the fight was stopped, Eubank stood on the ropes in the corner in his trademark stance. In the post-fight interview, he gave credit to Quinlan, describing him as a tough fighter, "It was like hitting concrete.
Big respect to Renold Quinlan. He flew halfway around the world to defend his title against one of the best in the world. He didn't have to do that.
Reports suggested on 1 June that Eubank would make his ring return in July defending his IBO super middleweight title against former multiple weight world champion Arthur Abraham , 30 KOs in London.
At the time the fight was being discussed, Abraham was the mandatory challenger to the WBO title, held by Gilberto Ramirez , who defeated Abraham in April He was given two hours to lose the extra weight.
Eubank weighed inside the limit at 11st 13lb 3oz. It was said that if Abraham couldn't make weight a second time, the fight would still take place in a non-title fight.
Abraham made weight on the third attempt. Eubank won via a unanimous decision with the scorecards , and Abraham had little to offer, mostly in defence mode as Eubank out landed and outpointed him.
The last time Eubank went the 12 round distance was his split decision loss to Saunders in November , and the last time he won a fight on points was on his 8th professional fight in December Eubank landed staggering uppercuts throughout the fight, many single and some in combinations, with Abraham only managing to connect a few shots clean, but left little to no damage.
Eubank spoke of Abraham's performance, "He's definitely the most durable opponent I've faced. I hit him with every shot in the book.
He didn't win a round and I'm happy with the performance.Ich bin Boxer geworden, um meinen Vater zu übertreffen und journey spiel zu einer Legende zu werden!
