That was a good watch but it would have been nice if they mentioned Nathaniel whilst they were ringing names off the family tree, he can't be erased from the life story and he won't be.

It's the best anyone could have hoped to extract from him though, he's never forthcoming and straightforward but as a private man myself I respect his decision to avoid the questions he did. The most moving part clearly was Piers taking him back to the Watson fight and aftermath, it was great to see Watson there to give his input also but I've never understood why he's so long stated that he forgives Chris, I don't understand what's to forgive he didn't do anything you're not meant to do in a boxing ring, the outcome was tragic of course and I am so pleased to see the progress Watson has made since (slow as it's been) but no one has anything to feel guilty about or or to offer forgiveness for at least not where the boxers are concerned anyway.

On a lighter note Piers' attempt to mislead the casuals by claiming Jr became a world champion was rather amusing. They cut to a shot of Eubank sat at a table with the strap resting on it infront of him and the words 'world champion' printed across the top half of the arch all the while the bottom half and 'IBO' was obscured from view, tidy bit of trickery there but he's not fooling even Chris Sr with that.

But as I say all in all a good watch and I'm pleased to see that he is happy with his life as it currently is.

He was an absolute fraud and charlatan. There are multiple British boxers of that era who never held that God-forsaken WBO trash heap holders but were better fighters than Eubank. Like Dean Francis. He was around the level of Cornelius Carr.
