Eubank Jr. Stirs Controversy by Rejecting Benn Showdown Payday

In a puzzling turn of events, Chris Eubank Jr. has left promoter Eddie Hearn “baffled” as he continues to decline a substantial payday for rescheduling a domestic clash with Conor Benn. Hearn, who sees this potential bout as “the biggest fight in British boxing history,” expressed his confusion over Eubank’s reluctance, emphasizing the lucrative opportunity on the table.

Benn, fresh from his 12-round unanimous-decision victory over Peter Dobson, didn’t hold back in dismissing Eubank as “a p-ssy.” The heated exchange follows the cancellation of their middleweight bout in October 2022, with Benn twice testing positive for a banned substance, clomiphene. The ongoing appeal process adds uncertainty to a potential rematch.

Hearn remains optimistic about bringing the Eubank-Benn showdown to England, though Saudi Arabia is also considered. Despite the hurdles, Hearn is determined to make the fight happen, provided Benn’s suspension appeal is successful.

In response to criticism of Benn’s performance, Hearn highlighted the welterweight division as the focus for Benn’s future bouts. The young boxer, undefeated in 23 fights, is keen on facing ranked opponents at 147 pounds.

Eubank’s decision to bypass a significantly larger payday three times over raises questions, with Hearn expressing bewilderment over the missed opportunity for a historic British boxing event. Benn, undeterred by Eubank’s stance, labels his potential opponent simply as “a p-ssy,” signaling a fiery exchange between the two camps.

As the saga unfolds, the boxing world eagerly awaits resolution, with the possibility of a memorable Eubank-Benn showdown hanging in the balance.
