Chris Eubank Jr. playfully posted a video on his social media account in which father Chris Sr. took it upon himself to take the spotlight away from a World Boxing Super Series ring girl.
In typical Eubank Sr. style, the ex-world champion had no time for a young lady attempting to get into a photo with his son and instead took the spot himself to hilarious consequences.
To all ring girls. Do not photobomb me as my dad has a very particular set of skills. He will look for u, he will find u & he will pie u ???? pic.twitter.com/skwdIACh8d

Upon seeing a video clip, Eubank Jr. decided to relay the incident to his fans with the tagline, ‘To all ring girls. Do not photobomb me as my dad has a very particular set of skills. He will look for you, he will find you and he will pie you,’ – but was met with an adverse repsonse from outspoken UK singer Lily Allen.
“They are doing their job. Your dad went bankrupt and gave you to a stranger in Vegas, the only photobomber here is him,” said Allen, referring to a spell in the United States for the IBO super-middleweight title holder during his youth.
Eubank Jr. hit back a short time later and was pretty ruthless in his own observations of Allen’s personal life over the years.
“It’s called banter Lily. You’re well known for abusing drugs and alcohol so maybe focus on respecting yourself first before worrying about others,” snapped the 28 year-old.
Allen had a couple of more tweets to follow up with, including ‘I’m actually sober, but thanks’ but all in all, fellow-boxers and fans of the sport sent the tweets viral with their obvious delight.
The Brighton man booked his place in the WBSS semi-finals on Saturday night with a crushing victory over Avni Yildirim and is now firm favorite to lift the Ali Trophy in May of 2018 when the tournament concludes.
