Promoter Frank Warren bitterly annoyed with Eubank Sr role…
Ahead of their fight on November 29 in London, Chris Eubank Jr again failed to show up for a press conference alongside Billy Joe Saunders.
This isn’t the first time that it has happened with Eubank Jr failing to make a press conference a couple of months ago which led to a heated interview with Saunders going viral online.
Eubank Jr did attend a press conference last month, but that was held at a time when Saunders was in Marbella for his training camp and was forced to appear on Skype in order to be able to engage with his opponent.
According to promoter Frank Warren, Eubank Jr and his father had agreed to attend the press conference but by not showing up they have not only let themselves down, but have acted to the detriment to the sport as a whole with broadcasters and media being let down.
Saunders remained calmed despite having to fly back for the event, and he insisted that he had no intention of laying his hands on his rival after previously claiming that he would “give him a slap”.
Nevertheless, Eubank Jr opted not to attend and it remains to be seen if he chooses to do so with two more press conferences scheduled ahead of the weigh-in on November 28, before fight night on November 29.
