You could ask what’s the relevance any weight division limit. Fighters normally rehydrate 10 to 20lbs after a weighin.

Relevance for this t fight is to weight drain Chris Eubank jr. 157lb. Who struggles to make 160lbs as it is. And then make it hard for him to fully rehydrate the following day. By setting a limit of 162lbs.

The standard rehydration clauses normally be 10lbs . This 5lbs limit makes things a lot tougher it means Eubank can’t fully re-hydrate right after the fight and will have stay dehydrated until the second weighin the following morning.

And for the record Conor Benin’s walk around weight is 168lb’s.

Anyway if Eubank jr gets whooped cus of this then there is no excuses. He agreed to this and signed the contract.


I don't understand why Eubank even took this fight. Beating Benn means nothing, and the weight-draining thing is just shyte piled on top of a nothing sandwich.

It's not a title fight, so Eubank should just miss the weight on purpose, and pay whatever the penalty is. What are they gonna' do, cancel the fight?

There is a clause in the contract according to Benns Coach Tony Simms. The financial penalty only applies to the first 1.5 lbs. If Eubanks weighs more the 158.5lbs, the fight will be cancelled same applies I presume for the next day re-hydration weigh in.

Eubank jr seems to have the same smugness about him that Oscar De Lahoya had when he agreed to fight Pacquaio at 145lbs, He looked like a ghost of himself.

Eubanks jr has taken the fight for the huge pay check biggest payday of his career this will be a very big fight in the U.K. ...And he was in the U.K. Tabloids this week saying he wants to fight Jake Paul.

Eubank is unlikely to get this kind of money fighting for a title, and even less likely to beat the likes of Charlo or Andrade.

I think he is cashing out he is not getting any younger...If he beats Benn. He will be chasing the Youtubers.

I think Junior could hit the jackpot here if he wins. Kell Brook might be tempted back to fight the winner of Eubank vs Benn. And Liam Smith,and BJ Saunders are also keen to fight him. So back to back paychecks.

Kell Brook has been training.

As for Conor Benn he reminds me of a young James Kirkland.

Not sure how he well he holds a shot. But if he can handle Juniors power for a few rounds. The fight should be exciting. While it lasts.

Pretty poor of Hearn that this is also PPV. Not only have they gone back on the 'no PPV on DAZN' thing, but now they're setting the same old Sky threshold. I won't pay £10 for what to me is a stupid fight to make. Eubank continuing his total lack of ambition is a bit sad, frankly. This is a siding when it comes to a title run. He called out Alvarez for a title fight after the weekend, but this is hardly the sort of fight to take if he's serious about that. I'll read the result late that night.

Part one of the training camps documentary is now up. It is an interesting watch.

Obviously no where near the slick production quality of Show Time all access or HBO 24/7.

The low budget aspect of it adds to its charm makes it kinda of quirky and very British.

Sort of like one of them Louis Theroux documentaries.
