Chris Eubank is a British boxer who used to compete professionally from 1985 to 1998. Between 1990 and 1995, he was the WBO middleweight and super-middleweight champion. BoxRec ranks him as the third-best British super-middleweight boxer of all time.
He was the world champion for more than five years. In his first ten years as a professional boxer, he never lost, and he never lost at middleweight, either. In the 1990s, British boxing was at its most popular, and Eubank’s fights for the world title against fellow Brits Nigel Benn and Michael Watson were a big part of that. His quirky personality also made him one of the most famous people of the time.
In his last two years of boxing, he went up against Joe Calzaghe, who was a rising star at the time, to win back his WBO super-middleweight title. Calzaghe won, but he later said that it was the hardest fight of his entire career. Eubank’s last two fights were both against Carl Thompson, who was the WBO junior-heavyweight champion. Both fights were very rough. Eubank was stopped for the first and only time in his career during the rematch.
