Benn vs Eubank Jr: Tale of the tape
Eubank Jr suggested he is now ready to face Benn in the fight dubbed ‘Born Rivals’ after both their fathers went head-to-head with each other twice in the 1990s.
Speaking to IFL TV, Eubank Jr said: “I’m a constant professional. I have abstained from sex my entire career and I have never ever slipped up on it.
“I have been tested, many a time, I have even been tricked a few times.
“I have woken up and you know, something is going on which I didn’t say was okay. I’ve had that a couple of times.
“But I have never ever slipped up. I always keep the discipline, keep my routine.
“If I say I’m going to do four weeks – I do four weeks. If I say I’m going to do seven weeks – I do seven weeks.
“I have done my two weeks for Conor Benn.”
Benn has mocked Eubank’s methods of developing a routine, focus and a build-up of testosterone pre-fight.
A confused Benn poked fun at his rival: “How has it come to this? What are you talking about?
“I don’t care, no one asked about your sex drive or about what gets you going.”
Eubank previously said to The Face Off: “I’m not going to kill myself in this training camp. Usually, I go eight weeks without sex. I abstain for eight weeks.
“I’m going to abstain for two weeks for you.
“Canelo [Alvarez], [Gennady] Golovkin, they get eight weeks. [Billy Joe] Saunders gets four weeks.
“Conor Benn gets two. Jake Paul will get one week. So, you’re not at the bottom of the barrel, but you’re close.”
Eubank Jr meets Benn in the ring on Saturday night at the O2 Arena.

Here are some basic skills in boxing
How to box effectively
Boxing has become a very popular sport. It consists of two opponents who try to knock out each other’s head. Boxing rules vary from one country or another. There are three types generally of boxing: Amateur (Professional) and Olympic (Olympic).
Amateur boxing is often practiced at school, college, or university. This type of boxing includes sparring sessions with padded gloves and without any protection. Amateur boxing contests are usually three rounds in length, lasting five minutes each. There are many styles to amateur boxing like Kickboxing. Muay Thai. Taekwondo. Karate. Judo. Wrestling.
Boxing is typically practiced in clubs, stadiums or gyms. They are protected by protective equipment like a mouthpiece, nose protector, shinguards, elbow pads and knee pads, waist belt, and groin protection. Professional boxing competitions have six rounds that last four minutes each. There are many styles to professional boxing.
Olympic boxing is performed at the Olympics. International standards require that boxers use special protective gear. The competition lasts for eight rounds, each lasting three minutes. Olympic boxing has only two styles, Light Flyweight vs Heavyweight.
The basics of boxing are:
- Punching techniques
- Guarding techniques
- Body movement
There are seven types: Left Hook (right hook), Right Hook (uppercut), Cross (cross), Straight, Overhand, Underhand. Each punch is unique. Some punches need more power than others. An example of this is an uppercut, which requires tremendous force. On the other hand, a straight punch requires less power but it is faster than other punches.
There are also various punching combinations. These are combinations made up of several punches that can be used together to achieve one goal. One combination can have many parts. A left hook followed with a right-cross will cause injury to the opponent’s jaw.
A boxer protects himself by using his body. He does this by using his legs.
A boxer must use his legs to defend against kicks. If he gets kicked, he raises one leg and turns away from his attacker. To avoid being kicked on his side, he will bend his knees if the attack is from the front. If the attack is from the side, he will bend his knees to avoid being kicked on the side.
Because elbow strikes inflict a lot of pain, they are very effective. An elbow strike can be delivered directly or indirectly. Directly refers to hitting your opponent with the forearm, while indirect means you hit him using another part of your arms.
Boxers use their hands as a shield against incoming punches. Boxers use their hands to stop incoming punches. They raise their fists up above their heads and move towards the attack. Then they make contact with the attacker’s fist.
Boxers who are subject to a punch to their stomachs, abdomens, or chests should bend at the knees to absorb the impact. Knee strikes are often used for defense purposes.
A boxer should take control of an attack and respond with counter-attacks. He can then gain distance from his opponent. Additionally, boxers need to maintain their balance when they counter-attack.
To box effectively, a boxer must establish a stance. How he defends his self will depend on how he stances. It determines his position and the direction he will face. Boxers have many stances to choose from. These are some of our most favorite:
- Low stance
- High stance
- Southpaw stance
- Western stance
To win a fight, a fighter must move around the opponent. This involves changing positions, speed, rhythm and timing.
Rotating his arm to increase the puncher’s reach is a key part of boxing. Different types of punches require different speeds for the rotation.
The timing of each punch determines the effectiveness of a combination. A combination is good if it starts with a strong punch then ends with a weaker one.
Sparring is a form of boxing that aims to improve your skills. Boxers learn to train their mind and bodies during sparring sessions. Sparring, in conclusion, is about learning how to fight and not getting hurt.
In conclusion, learning to box requires dedication and patience. Boxing is a sport that requires dedication and perseverance.
