Conor Benn finalizes preparations for fight against Chris Eubank Jr.

October 8 at the O2 Arena in London Chris Eubank Jr. and Conor Benn will meet in a 12-round bout at 157 pounds (71.2 kg) catchweight 30 years after their legendary fathers' second bout at Old Trafford. Eubank Sr. and Benn Sr. gave the fans two fierce fights during the boom of British boxing in the early nineties, setting up two legendary fights in 1990 and 1993.

Eubank Sr. stopped his opponent in the ninth round of their first bloody fight in Birmingham. It took three years to arrange a rematch at Old Trafford in Manchester. The fight for the WBC and WBO super middleweight titles ended in a draw, and the couple never met each other again. Now it's their sons' turn to stir up family feuds.
