Share

It is 23 years since Eubank Snr secured one of his finest wins to defend his WBO super-middleweight title against the then-undefeated Graciano Rocchigiani in Berlin.

The 28-year-old threw a total of 201 punches, landing 59 compared to his opponent's 23 - a commanding performance from Jr. "I am sending a message out there that I am coming", he said at ringside, broadcast on ITV Box Office.

When he did finally speak, he sent a chilling message to Groves, saying: "I'm here to dominate this tournament".

From the first bell Yildrim, 16-0-0 heading into the bout, predictably marched forward with his high guard, whilst Eubank Jr stylishly fought off the back foot and went in search of what is seemingly his favorite weapon, the uppercut. "Groves, I'm coming for you", Eubank stated.

It was a positive speech from Eubank after a dominant victory, but as you can see in the clip below, Chris' father, Chris Eubank Sr, stole the show with a hilarious stunt. "There were saboteurs and we were triumphant", Eubank Sr said.
