The Queen Patricia Earl, the Queen's head housekeeper at Sandringham in Norfolk, was "embarrassed" after some servants refused to form a four-week bubble that would allow the monarch and Prince Philip to spend Christmas at the estate, it is claimed.
From two months to six years old he was raised in Jamaica. On his return to England, he lived in Stoke Newington , Dalston , Hackney and then Peckham , in a largely impoverished environment.
He attended Northwold Primary School in Upper Clapton, Bellingden Junior School, and then Thomas Calton Secondary School in Peckham, from where he was suspended eighteen times in one year and then expelled, despite claiming he was gallantly trying to protect other children from bullies.
When he was 16, his father sent him to New York in the U. Eubank made a fresh start in New York, battling drug, alcohol and shoplifting addictions to attend church and school.
Eubank became obsessed with boxing training and went to the gym every day, even working as caretaker to pay his way.
He writes in his autobiography that his drive to succeed in boxing came through his drive to become an accepted individual, largely caused by subjective bullying from his elder brothers.
He made his professional debut at the Atlantis Hotel and Casino against Tim Brown, shortly after his 19th birthday. Although his next 10 fights went largely unnoticed, then in February he made brief headlines in defeating Jamaican Anthony Logan in an undercard match to a Nigel Benn -headlined show.
Benn was arguably the biggest rising star in European sport at the time and Logan had come closest to beating the power-punching Benn in what was Benn's most memorable clash to date.
Eubank had already made Brighton in England his adopted hometown and set his sights on Benn, believing he could beat him.
Later in the year, he knocked out Renaldo Dos Santos in precisely 20 seconds including the count. Eubank won the WBO middleweight title against Nigel Benn and the odds in a classic encounter that was later released on DVD: a gruelling battle which ended when Benn ahead on points, but only narrowly was stopped on his feet near the end of round 9.
Eubank would defend the title successfully against Dan Sherry in a fight cut short by a headbutt, for which Eubank was penalised 2 points but still won on points over the 9 completed rounds , fellow Briton Gary Stretch and finally in an excellent match with another fellow Briton, Michael Watson , fighting him to a narrow round majority decision in Eubank's favour.
This concluded Eubank's career as a middleweight, with a 28—0 record. A rematch with Watson for the vacant WBO super-middleweight title took place in September , in which Watson suffered a near-fatal injury.
Eubank was behind on all scorecards after 10 rounds, and was knocked down 18 seconds from the end of the round.
He rose from the canvas being given only a standing four-count instead of eight to unleash a devastating uppercut to Watson's jaw right at the end of the round, knocking Watson's head and neck backwards into the ring ropes.
The bell sounded to end the round as soon as Watson was up from the count. It was still obvious to all observers — and to Eubank himself — that he needed a knockout to win: and early in the 12th, with Watson still visibly shaken, the fight was stopped with Watson under a flurry of punches from Eubank.
Soon after the fight Watson collapsed in his corner. His condition may have been worsened by delay in receiving medical attention: there was no ambulance or paramedic at the event and after eight minutes on the ring floor, Watson was attended by doctors wearing dinner jackets, arriving late.
Following the fight, Eubank contemplated quitting the sport. Commentator Reg Gutteridge said, in the moment, he had, "never seen a more dramatic end to a world title fight".
Eubank later reflected on the aftermath: "I lost my finishing instinct in the ring — I couldn't finish fights any more.
However, I needed to work and so I carried on and I won most of my fights on decisions. And I blamed myself, after all, it was me who threw the punch.
Eubank was particularly noted for his confidence, concentration, composure, and extravagant behaviour, and antics that included a vault over the top-rope into the ring before each fight.
His trademark theme tune was Tina Turner's Simply the Best. He would often engage in posturing particularly between rounds of fights.
Eubank was by now presented as something of a "man you love to hate" figure in the British tabloid press because of his perceived arrogance and for his singularly unconventional sense of style.
In boxing circles he enjoyed even less popularity, having once referred to the sport as a 'mug's game' on national television This was a selective quote — Eubank had actually been discussing the seedier side of the sport, such as the beatings taken by journeyman fighters for small sums of money, or boxers that were lied to and ripped off by promoters.
Now the holder of a second title, Eubank relinquished his middleweight title and concentrated on defending his new crown at the higher weight of 12 st.
After the Watson tragedy Eubank never again showed any desire to knock opponents out, preferring to retain his title through points victories.
Nigel Benn moved up to super middleweight and became WBC champion. In the rivals would engage in another contest named 'Judgement Day' watched by a reported million people and fought an exciting contest — albeit less brutal than their first — to a draw.
Don King had negotiated the contracts so that he would own both the winner and the loser of Eubank v Benn 2. Barry Hearn claimed that, as a draw was not written into the contract, Eubank was free to sign a new deal with him instead of King.
He did — and Benn also did not sign for King, on the same pretext. Eubank won an eliminator for his old title against Jose Ignacio Barruetabena, as well as a win over Bruno Ruben Godoy.
A rematch with Collins took place in Cork, Ireland, and Eubank lost again by a surprisingly narrow split decision. He announced his retirement from the ring in October After Steve Collins withdrew from his WBO super-middleweight title defence against Joe Calzaghe and unexpectedly retired in October , Calzaghe was matched against Eubank for the vacant title with eleven days notice.
Eubank had been scheduled to box at light-heavyweight on the undercard. Eubank was knocked down twice and lost on points to Calzaghe, but saw his popularity rise as a result of managing to finish the fight against his more fancied opponent.
Eubank floored Thompson in the fourth round but, as in the first Steve Collins fight, failed to press home his advantage. The fight went the distance, with Thompson's strength and durability eventually telling in the later rounds.
Thompson won by unanimous decision, but the closeness of the fight was reflected in the scoring, with two of the three judges giving the fight to Thompson by a single point.
A rematch was quickly arranged for three months later and they again fought for the WBO cruiserweight championship in what turned out to be Eubank's last fight.
Eubank had the better of the fight early in the rematch, but the short rest between the bouts came back to haunt him as his left eye that was damaged in the first fight rapidly began to swell.
The fight was stopped at the end of the ninth round, when Eubank's left eye closed completely from swelling. At the time he was ahead on the scorecards.
It was the only stoppage loss of Eubank's career spanning 3 weight divisions, 30 pounds and 13 years as professional.
Throughout his successful years and beyond, Eubank developed a reputation [ citation needed ] for eccentricity.
His collection of vehicles included a customised Harley-Davidson and a huge American Peterbilt truck cab — the largest lorry in Europe.
At one time he owned the only Hummer in Britain. In the early s, Eubank was caricatured as a puppet on Spitting Image. And I want that rematch, Billy Joe Saunders.
I'm coming for you. The fight however did not take place. After a that was mostly inactive, Eubank signed to promoter Eddie Hearn under the Matchroom Sport banner.
Veteran trainer Adam Booth was added to the team to co-train Eubank. His first fight following his signing with Matchroom was a bout against American Tony Jeter, making his debut on Sky Sports on 24 October.
Following the bout, Eubank was stripped of the interim WBA middleweight title due to his inactivity since winning it.
Dillian Whyte. The fight throughout had the pace set by Eubank Jr, however O'Sullivan showed great resilience to Eubank's continuous hard shots, particularly uppercuts.
At the end of the 7th round, O'Sullivan's corner retired their fighter, who had sustained a perforated eardrum. Immediately after Eubank defeated O'Sullivan, Hennessey Sports announced that they had won the purse bids and the rights to stage Eubank vs.
Nick Blackwell for Blackwell's British middleweight title. The fight was shown live on Channel 5. Following the eighth round, the elder Eubank instructed Eubank to stop hitting Blackwell in the head.
Dominic Breazeale at The O2 on 25 June. Tom Doran was announced as Eubank Jr's opponent on 19 May.
Eubank had continued to climb up the ladder since joining Matchroom, having achieved a ranking of number two by the WBA and number three by the WBC.
Doran was down once in the 3rd round and three times in the 4th as the referee waved off the fight. Eubank called out Gennady Golovkin in the post fight interview.
It was announced on 12 August, Eubank would make a mandatory defence of his British middleweight title against fellow British and undefeated Commonwealth and WBO Inter-Continental middleweight champion Tommy Langford after promoter Frank Warren won a purse bid to stage the fight.
Throughout , Eubank made it clear that he wanted to challenge undefeated unified middleweight champion Gennady Golvokin. Eubank Sr. Quinlan won the then-vacant IBO title defeating former world champion Daniel Geale in October via knockout in round two.
He saw an opportunity to fight for a world title and took it. If he can win the world title, then he will negotiate with other champions.
Despite having not previously fought at super-middleweight, the December WBC ranking update had Eubank at number seven, previously being number two at middleweight.
The reason being there was little to no promotion, with the fight being only weeks away. I have a feeling it's going to get pulled.
On fight night, Eubank stopped Quinlan in round 10 in a fairly one-sided fight to win the IBO super-middleweight title. The fight was stopped by referee Howard John Foster, 2 minutes and 7 seconds of round 10 after seeing Quinlan backed up against the ropes being hit with continuous head shots.
After the fight was stopped, Eubank stood on the ropes in the corner in his trademark stance. In the post-fight interview, he gave credit to Quinlan, describing him as a tough fighter, "It was like hitting concrete.
Big respect to Renold Quinlan. He flew halfway around the world to defend his title against one of the best in the world.
He didn't have to do that. Reports suggested on 1 June that Eubank would make his ring return in July defending his IBO super middleweight title against former multiple weight world champion Arthur Abraham , 30 KOs in London.
At the time the fight was being discussed, Abraham was the mandatory challenger to the WBO title, held by Gilberto Ramirez , who defeated Abraham in April He was given two hours to lose the extra weight.
Eubank weighed inside the limit at 11st 13lb 3oz. It was said that if Abraham couldn't make weight a second time, the fight would still take place in a non-title fight.
Abraham made weight on the third attempt. Eubank won via a unanimous decision with the scorecards —, and — Abraham had little to offer, mostly in defence mode as Eubank out landed and outpointed him.
The last time Eubank went the 12 round distance was his split decision loss to Saunders in November , and the last time he won a fight on points was on his 8th professional fight in December Eubank landed staggering uppercuts throughout the fight, many single and some in combinations, with Abraham only managing to connect a few shots clean, but left little to no damage.
Eubank spoke of Abraham's performance, "He's definitely the most durable opponent I've faced. I hit him with every shot in the book.
He didn't win a round and I'm happy with the performance. On 7 July , the World Boxing Super Series announced the winner of Abraham and Eubank would be taking part in the super-middleweight knockout tournament.
Promoter Kalle Sauerland said official confirmation of a venue and date would be announced in the coming weeks. Yildirim was forced to take a knee in the opening round when Eubank landed a big uppercut.
Yildirim wasn't hard to hit as he lent forward whilst attacking. The fight came to an end after a flurry of shots, which were unanswered and the final punch was a left to the head which again dropped Yildirim.
Referee Leszek Jankowiak stopped the fight without counting, whilst Yildirim attempted to get up. Some of the media and pundits felt the stoppage was premature and Yildirim was recovering, however some felt as though he had taken too many blows to the head.
I am sending a message out there that I am coming. Due to winning their respective bouts in October , Eubank and George Groves , 20 KOs were due to meet in the semi final of the tournament.
At first, promoter Kalle Sauerland stated he would try to book the fight for a stadium in either London or Manchester.
The winner of the fight would earn his place in the final of the tournament as well as walk out with the WBA Super and IBO super-middleweight titles.
Groves secured his place in the final of the tournament after defeating Eubank over 12 rounds. The judges scored the fight —, and for Groves.
Groves, the bigger man in the ring, used his jab to control the fight after a cagey round and mostly fought on the back foot, occasionally landing the big shot.
An accidental clash of heads caused Eubank to receive a cut on the side of his right eye in round 3. The big cut was dealt with by his corner after the round, but as the fight went on to the later rounds, blood was seen flowing expeditiously.
The fight was riddled with a lot of clinches and unclean punches from both boxers. Chris was then brought back to the UK and bought up in a working class environment in London, moving between various boroughs including Hackney and Peckham.
Then, age 16, he went to live his mother in New York. It was here that he began his boxing career. Chris moved back to the UK but continued his career in the sport.
