Conor Benn and Chris Eubank Jr came face to face for the first time ahead of their super-fight as the pair renew their family feud.
Benn’s father Nigel was the middleweight and super-middleweight champion when he fought Eubank’s father Chris Sr twice in the 1990s.
Eubank won the pair’s first meeting before the rematch, at 168lb, was scored a draw in October 1993.
The sons of the two legends will meet 29 years later, minus a day, at the O2 Arena in London on October 8.
It will be broadcast on DAZN worldwide and DAZN Pay-Per-View in the UK and Ireland and will be staged at a catchweight of 157 pounds.
Benn (21-0, 14 KOs) has been a welterweight since turning professional, while the second generation Eubank has boxed as high as super-middleweight.
And the latter is understanding of why Team Benn has taken the right at a catchweight but believes he only needs to be at 60% to get his hand raised.
At the top table of Friday’s London press conference, Eubank Jr said:
“This has never happened before and won’t happen again
“That’s why I want to be part of this. It’s very exciting.
“I’m underestimating Conor because I know I don’t have to be at 100 per cent to beat him. If he beats me, he becomes a star, but I know why they took the fight.
“I know I won’t be 100 per cent, but all I’ve got to do is get to my 60 per cent mark.”
Eubank has never been as low as the limit that will be imposed on him for this fight, but he’s well aware that, with a rehydration clause and a hefty £100,000-per-pound fine for either fighter who tips the scales over the limit, it will be to his detriment.
“I can’t be 100 per cent if I have to make a weight I’ve never made before and I can’t rehydrate fully.
“If I could be 100 per cent, it would be a public execution.”
Eubank Jr went on to admit that he’s taking his opponent lightly and can’t see a way he loses this fight:
“Conor, you can’t beat me.
“I am taking you lightly, I don’t see that pedigree in you.
“In my mind it’s impossible for you to win.”
