Chris Eubank spent some time helping the Louisiana Police Department this week, reporting from a traffic collision on Tuesday.

The former world champion and all-round British legend posted a video of himself at the scene of a vehicle collision.

Sporting his ‘Sheriff’s badge’ but without a raincoat in the bad weather, Eubank was on hand for what he described as ‘training day’.

“Sergeant Eubank proudly on duty in Louisiana. All warriors protect and serve. Whether one wears a badge or not,” said Eubank, who also stated there were no injuries.

Eubank had been in Los Angeles for meetings with his son Chris Eubank Jr. and Al Haymon at Premier Boxing Champions. ‘English’ also stuck around for the Deontay Wilder v Tyson Fury fight.

Heading off to the Gulf of Mexico, Eubank seemed to be taking care of some serious business.

ITV DEAL

Son Chris Jr. is expected to be part of the new Haymon revolution at Premier Boxing Champions on the back of today’s agreement with ITV.

Haymon has signed a 15-show per year deal with ITV to feature his stable on terrestrial TV and on Box Office.

Making the announcement, there was an obvious delight at the landmark deal.



“This unprecedented deal between PBC and ITV is great news for boxing fans in the UK. We look forward to bringing viewers big events and superb action from some of the world’s best fighters in the coming years,” said Niall Sloane, ITV Director of Sport.

“Bringing big events to our platforms under this deal allows ITV to build on its aim of developing our direct relationship with viewers as part of our More Than TV strategy,” said Julian Ashworth, Director ITV Strategy and Direct to Consumer.
