BoxingScene.com has confirmed that plans are finalized for a showdown between Conor Benn and Chris Eubank Jr. The long-discussed grudge match is now set to headline an October 8 DAZN Pay-Per-View from The O2 in London.
The fight will be streamed worldwide on DAZN and DAZN PPV in the UK and Ireland.
The pairing comes 29 years almost to the day of the October 1993 rematch between Nigel Benn and Chris Eubank Sr., when the two fought to a draw in front of an announced crowd of 47,000 at Old Trafford Stadium in Manchester, England. The famed rematch came nearly three years after Eubank stopped Benn in the ninth-round of their November 1990 WBO middleweight title fight in Birmingham, England.
