The renewed rivalry between the names Eubank and Benn will soon enter it's next phase as Chris Eubank Jr. and Conor Benn will lock horns next Saturday.
Eubank Jr. doesn't believe he is in for a tough night when he meets Benn at the O2 Arena on October 8th and has been posting clips of his 'preparation.'
Eubank Jr. has to cut down to 157lbs from his natural weight at around 166lbs at super middleweight. People questioned Eubank Jr's safety dropping down to that weight, including his father who was claiming to be pulling Jr. out the fight.
However, Eubank Jr. has been playing mindgames, as he has posted clips of him eating junk food. Eubank Jr. first started his mindgames when he arrived to KSI's 2 fights 1 night in August, eating a bucket of KFC chicken. Next up was a clip on him eating a chocolate desert and now he has taken to Twitter to post a video of himself eating a burger.
