PICTURED: Eubank Jr. heads to LA for PBC talks with ‘Sheriff’ Chris Sr.

There seemed nothing untoward about Chris Eubank Jr. posting a picture of himself and father Chris Sr. heading to Los Angeles for the Deontay Wilder v Tyson Fury fight on Friday.

Eubank Jr. is heading across the Atlantic from the UK, not only for the heavyweight clash but in order to hold talks with Al Haymon about forthcoming contests.

The former IBO super-middleweight champion said: “Flying out to LA for the fight tomorrow night and looking forward to meeting up with Team PBC.”

One peculiar thing about the photo accompanying Eubank’s social media announcement was the curious badge sported by his dad.

Senior had what appeared to be a Sherrif’s badge on his jacket. Yet another symbol of the British legend’s eccentric fashion sense.

Along with his world-famous monocle and cane, Eubank has now added the sign of authority to his get-up as the pair head out to witness one of the fights of the year.

It’s believed Eubank was given the shield by a real US Sheriff.
