Chris Eubank: Sports Life Stories

Published on 11th March 2017 by

A 2013 ITV Sporting Life Stories episode about the former boxer Chris Eubank, one of the most exciting boxers of his generation. Eubank was an interesting character and he had a famous rivalry with another great British boxer, Nigel Benn. In an illustrious 13 year professional career he participated in 52 fights, held the WBO Middleweight and WBO Super Middleweight belts, and retired with a 45-5-2 record with 23 wins by knockout.

This biographical programme about his life and career includes contributions from various personalities including his former promoter Barry Hearn of Matchroom Sports, father of Eddie Hearn, and his fierce rival Nigel ‘The Dark Destroyer’ Benn. Also worth a watch for those more interested in Eubank’s eccentric personality rather than his sporting achievements is the Louis Theroux episode When Louis Met… Chris Eubank.
