Chris Eubank v Ex-promoter: Public disagreement rumbles on

Phil Jay 04/01/2017

The very public spat between former world champion Chris Eubank Sr. and his former handler Barry Hearn continues to dominate social media.

Eubank and Hearn have been swapping tweets for some time now in an argument dating back to their time together during the 1990’s and 2000’s.

Hearn’s son Eddie Hearn has taken to his usual method of YouTube this week in an attempt to shed further light on Eubank’s past demands as the ex-fighter himself calls for a public forum to debate their grievances.

The whole thing has left a sour taste in the mouth as it’s quite sad to see two families who were once firm friends bickering back and forth for all to see.

In his latest request, Eubank Sr. tweeted Hearn Sr. asking to be part of a ‘Gloves are Off’ show on Sky Sports so the pair can go head-to-head verbally with presenter Johnny Nelson as referee.

As things stand, Hearn is refusing to bow down to Eubank’s demands and believes the two-weight world title holder is trying nothing more than to build up interest in his son’s next fight.

Chris Eubank Jr. takes on Renold Quinlan for the IBO super-middleweight belt next month in a move that sees the 27 year-old become the first to test the waters of terrestrial pay-per-view.

A deal with ITV Sport, the one-time home of Eubank Sr. in his heyday, was reached just before Christmas and Junior is currently in training (without a coach) in a bid to dethrone the Australian.
