Renewing The Eubank vs Benn Rivalry 29 Years On

Chris Eubank and Nigel Benn has quite possibly the biggest and most famous rivalry in British boxing history, as the pair of elite boxers fought on two occasions in the 1990s.

The first fight between Eubank and Benn was in 1990 at middleweight, with the rematch playing out three years later in 1993, but this time up a weight division at super-middleweight.

The first fight between Eubank and Benn was a classic. The fight was on a knife edge, with both men hitting the canvas too. Eubank won the fight by ninth round TKO, as referee Richard Steele stepped in to end a flurry of Eubank shots with five seconds left of the round. Steele described this fight as, “the most dramatic fight I have ever refereed.”

The second fight between Nigel Benn and Chris Eubank wasn’t quite as entertaining or compelling as the first one, but still brought great drama and lots of controversy, which the pair of foes were quite used to by now.

The rematch was again a close one, with the fight being deemed a split draw. One judge gave it 115-113 in favour of Eubank, one judge gave Benn the nod 114-113 on the cards, with the third judge deeming the fight a 114-114 draw.

There were rumours of the pair throwing down for a third time, but that never came to fruition, despite £6 million being put on the table for Eubank and Benn to have a trilogy bout.

However, almost 30 years after the first Eubank vs Benn fight, we have the trilogy. It mightn’t be the one between the two boxing legends, but the fact their sons are continuing on their legacy and are willing to put a show on for the fans and renew the rivalry between the Benn and Eubank families is admirable. Lets hope the fight lives up to expectation.
