Early life

Christopher Livingstone Eubanks (later opting to delete the 's' from his surname) was born on 8th August, 1966, in Dulwich, London and spent nearly two years in Jamaica (from two months old to two years old). On his return, he lived in Stoke Newington, Dalston, Hackney and then onto Peckham. He grew up in poverty. This article is about the capital of England and the United Kingdom. ...


Chris attended Bellingden Junior School, and then Thomas Carlton Secondary School from where he was suspended eighteen times in one year and then expelled, despite gallantly trying to protect other children from bullies. He then attended Peckham Manor School, from where he was suspended five times in four weeks for the same reason and then also expelled. Chris was then put into care.


He was then placed in various institutions by the Social Services: The Hollies in Sidcup, Kent, for one month; Yastrid Hall in North Wales for one and a half years; Stanford House in Shepherds Bush for seven weeks for assessment; St. Vincent's in Dartford, Kent, for one month; Orchard Lodge, Crystal Palace, for seven weeks for assessment; Karib in Peckham, London, for one month; and then, finally, Davy's Street School (care facility) in Peckham for one month.


His mother had left for New York when he was eight years old because his father had treated her awfully. Chris ended up as a homeless thief in his early teens, addicted to alcohol and marijuana, and reportedly a member of a notorious shoplifting gang (an allegation he subsequently denied in an interview on with Tim Shaw on Kerrang! Radio). At the age of 16, his father sent him to New York to live with his mother in the South Bronx. This article is about the state. ...

Eubank the boxer

Eubank made a fresh start in the South Bronx, quitting alcohol and marijuana, attending church and studying at Morris High School (he graduated in the summer of 1986). In his spare time he trained at the Jerome Boxing Club on Westchester Avenue (his older brothers, Peter and Simon, who were twins, were both boxers back in Peckham). Eubank became obsessed with trying to improve his skills at the boxing gym and trained seven days a week, becoming an amateur boxer and winning the 1984 New York Spanish Golden Gloves. He then reached the semi-finals of the 1985 New York Daily News Golden Gloves at Madison Square Garden, which is where his reputation for controversy began as he hit the headlines for the wrong reasons after biting his opponent's shoulder.


His drive to succeed in boxing came through his drive to become an accepted individual (his brothers, who were boxers, always treated him awfully when growing up).


He made his debut at the Atlantis Hotel against Timmy Brown, shortly after his 19th birthday. It was an eye-catching display, the young man vaulting the top rope and showing agility, skill and power. He won over four rounds on points, and four more four-rounders followed (all in Atlantic City) with four more points wins. He finally returned to the UK in January 1988, making Brighton (where his brothers Peter and Simon had settled) his adopted home. He became obsessed with becoming a world champion. In October 1988, when he was 10 and 0 as a professional boxer, Eubank first started calling out Nigel Benn, and they would become arch-rivals.


In 1990 he beat highly rated Brazilian Reginaldo Dos Santos in 20 seconds to win an inter-continental title and a world title shot, then won the WBO world middleweight title against Nigel Benn in a classic encounter that was later released on DVD. Eubank would defend the title successfully against Dan Sherry, Gary Stretch and finally in an excellent match with Michael Watson. This concluded Eubank's career as a middleweight, with a 28-0 record. Nigel Benn (born January 22, 1964) is an English former boxer who held world titles at both Middleweight and Super Middleweight. ... Michael Watson (born March 15, 1965) is a former boxer from England. ...


In 1991 he was involved in what experts regard as the greatest fight in a British ring where he sent the ill-fated Michael Watson into a coma. Eubank was behind on all scorecards when he rose from the canvas at the end of the 11th round to unleash a devastating uppercut to Watsons jaw. The blow was exacerbated when a left hook quickened the stunned Watsons' fall into the ropes. The bout was somehow allowed to continue briefly into the 12th, but Watson collapsed afterwards and almost died. Eubank contemplated quitting the sport.


The Eubank v Watson rematch is considered one of the greatest of all time, and commentator Reg Guttteridge claimed he had; "never seen a more dramatic end to a world title fight".


The Watson rematch won Eubank a second title, the WBO world super-middleweight championship. His middleweight title relinquished, Eubank began defending his new crown at the higher weight of 12st to which he was more suited.


After injuring Watson permanently, Eubank never again showed his desire to win by knockout, and became a phenomenal 'out-fighter', winning many fights on points and retaining his WBO world super-middleweight title. He never again fought at middleweight, where he had been an undefeated world champion, and so lost the opportunity to have his name rank alongside middleweight legends such as Sugar Ray Robinson, Sugar Ray Leonard and Marvellous Marvin Hagler, yet Eubank rose to become the top ranked super middleweight in the world. Middleweight is a division, or weight class, in boxing. ... Sugar Ray Robinson, (born Walker Smith Jr. ... Ray Charles Leonard (born May 17, 1956 in Wilmington, North Carolina) is a retired professional boxer. ...

Nigel Benn would move to the heavier weight to become WBC champion, and the pair would agree to meet in a WBC/WBO unification match. In 1993 the bitter rivals would engage in another contest named 'Judgement Day', and watched by billions, fought thrillingly to a draw.


Don King 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. He did. Don King Donald Don King (born August 20, 1931), is a successful American boxing promoter particularly known for his hairstyle and flamboyant personality. ... Barry Hearn (born 1949, Dagenham, Essex) is an English sports entrepreneur, the founder and chairman of promotions company Matchroom Sport. ...


Eubank, despite losing his killer instinct after the Watson tragedy, still continued to box and claim scalps. He beat former IBF world super-middle and future WBC world light-heavyweight champion Graciano Rocchigiani, in an infamous bout staged in Berlin. Eubank memorably infuriated the partisan crowd by strutting and posing between rounds. Former IBF world super-middleweight king Lindell Holmes was easily beaten, as was two-time WBC world super-middleweight champion 'Sugar Boy' Malinga, European champion Ray Close and American champion Ron Esset. And of course Eubank remained unbeaten in two wars each with Michael Watson and the all time great Nigel Benn. Graciano Rocchigiani (born December 29, 1963 in Duisburg-Rheinhausen, Germany), was a professional boxer in the Light Heavyweight (175lb) division. ... Lindell Holmes (born April 4, 1957 in Toledo, OH) was an American boxer in the super middleweight division. ... Ray Close is a former CIA analyst in the Near East division. ...


After the Benn rematch and the Rocchigiani victory, Eubank signed an eight fight £10million deal with Sky Sports, and fought in Ireland, South Africa, Manchester, London and Millstreet. Fights in Paris, Rome and the Middle East to conclude the program were scuppered when Eubank lost his title via a controversial split decision in March 1995. In his 44th fight, having accepted at short notice to fight Steve Collins, his unbeaten record and title were lost. Collins was a stand-in for Ray Close, who had failed an MRI scan. Eubank had Collins reeling but seemmed bereft of his old killer instinct. In the rematch, Eubank had Collins bleeding and disorientated but would not 'bludgeon' his opponent to a knockout, after the Watson tragedy. Chris, with not a mark on his face, lost on points. He retired at 45-2. Sky Sports is the brand name for a group of 9 channels. ... This article is about the City of Manchester in England. ...

Eubank would repeat his mistake in accepting a title fight at short notice again when Collins refused to face Joe Calzaghe. Chris had returned to training for a challenge for the WBC intercontinental light-heavyweight title, with a view to a world title shot at that weight. Yet with his old title vacated, he accepted the offer to try to regain his old title, facing a young and fit Joe Calzaghe. After an exhausting two week weight draining regimen the comebacking legend fought bravely, and to this day Calzaghe, himself a superstar, claims Eubank gave him the hardest fight of his life. This proved to be the finale of his middle and super-middleweight career, which he ended with an impressive 45-3 win/loss record. Joe Calzaghe (born 23 March 1972 in Hammersmith, London England) is a Welsh boxer of Sardinian and Welsh descent, who is nicknamed The Pride of Wales. He currently lives in Cwmbran, Wales, and is one of the pound for pound top 10 boxers in the world according to the Ring...


His 1998 comeback fights against Carl Thompson at cruiserweight saw an ageing, once retired Eubank bravely lose to a young champion of a much heavier weight than Chris had fought at for a decade. Eubank lost narrowly on points in the first slugfest, and in the second was ahead on the scorecards when the fight was stopped by the ringside doctor at the end of the tenth, though Eubank protested bitterly. Carl Thompson (Born in 1939) is a luthier specializing in the construction of high-quality custom bass guitars, based in Brooklyn, New York. ... Cruiserweight is a weight class in boxing where previously contestants weighed between 176 and 190 pounds. ...


The losses late in his career saw the British public respond warmly to him, as he proved his bravery which had not been tested since the wars with Benn and Watson. Eubank retired as a long unbeaten fighter, and two weight world champion for six years.


Eubank the celebrity

Away from boxing, Eubank comes across as an eccentric. He speaks with a lisp and in upper-class tones, dresses as a stereotypically upper-class Englishman (in jodhpurs, bowler hat and riding boots, and famously sports a monocle), drives unusual vehicles (including a customised Harley Davidson and a huge American Peterbilt 379 truck cab which is the largest truck in Europe) and carries a cane.
