Exclusive: Benn blasts ‘numpty’ Eubank, says ‘put up or shut up!’
Nigel Benn has informed WBN that false promises by Chris Eubank Sr. have put plans for a possible third fight between the two in danger.
Former two-weight world champion Benn, 52, has been pushing for a trilogy bout for some time after a draw and a loss in their previous two meetings at different weights in 1990 and 1993.
‘The Dark Destroyer’ has been talking to investors to prove how serious he is about putting this fight on, although has accused Eubank of using delaying tactics despite stating recently that is too wants the battle to happen.
“Mr Eubanks has been talking to everyone except me and I’ll be the one in the other corner! I was ready for this fight two years ago, so I want to get it out there once and for all,” Benn exclusively told World Boxing News.
“I had people that had all the logistic to put this on. I had the sponsors in Vodafone and Carphone Warehouse and I was lining up Wembley Stadium. He said that he had people from Dubai that fell through, but then that he had guys from Manchester – but they also fell through. And now he’s saying he’s ready for the trilogy? – Really!”
Benn also revealed that Eubank has attempted to take control of organising the possible encounter, something which the Londoner is highly dubious about and now stands on the verge wiping his hands of the whole idea.
“I know he wants to try and put the fight on himself, but I don’t trust him to put on a drink in a brewery,“ joked Benn. “But seriously, the only person that I would like to put this fight on is Eddie Hearn because he’s been there because and he has the backing.
“So as we stand now we still have a couple of months left before I just call it a day because this numpty is getting on my last nerve and telling people that he’s going to tear me another bottom.
“Get real Chris as you are all talk and no business brain. Put up or shut up. It’s over to you Chris!”
