Video: Eubank chats about his possible ring return

Ciaran Gibbons talks exclusively to former two weight world champion Chris Eubank about a possible ring return.

 

Chris Eubank Sr has revealed he wants to make a return to the ring at the age of 45, and he would like to take on old enemy Nigel Benn.

“I’m a light-heavyweight now and when I look at 47-year-old Bernard Hopkins I think, ‘If he can do it, why can’t I?'” Eubank said in the Sun.

“To get back into the gym? Wow. To be hit again, to be hit in the chest, to be able to withstand a shot to the face, that is a dream for me, it is my fantasy.

“I was even talking to Nigel Benn and I said: ‘Come on kid, we’ve got to get it back on’. It would be a fantasy for me to actually box again, especially on the same bill as my son.

“First I would needed public backing. I would never want to do anything to compromise the respect I seem to have as a boxer.”
