Chris Eubank Jr. has brother Sebastian to watch over him while he swears to KO Conor Benn and secures his nephew’s financial future

CHRIS EUBANK Jr. has a tragic brother, Sebastian, who watches over him as he attempts to secure a victory over Conor Benn and his nephew’s financial future.

The 33-year-old fighter’s sibling – a fellow boxer, mixed martial artist and charity activist – died of a heart attack last year aged just 29.

Sebastian’s son Raheem was only a month old when his father passed away, so Chris Jr. unofficially adopted him as his own.

And Jr. hung a giant portrait of Sebastian at his Hove gym to inspire him ahead of a catchweight O2 fight with Benn in a week today.

This fight may have captured the imagination after the two iconic fights their fathers shared – but it means so much more to Eubank Jr.

In his beachside training bunker, he said: “I wanted the picture in my house, but my gym was the perfect place.

“Our family has been through so much here, we experience pain here, here we get fit together.

“I wanted him to look out for me in this fight and the rest of my career. I want him on my mind every day.

“As a reminder of why I’m doing this.

“It keeps up the Eubank family that my father built for us.

“My brother has a son who is now growing up without a biological father — but he has a father in me.”

Chris Jr will help raise Raheem with regular trips to his home in Dubai.

When the career middleweight discusses why he decided to postpone his world title effort and dehydrated himself to a career low, he gives new meaning to the term price war.

He said: “For the rest of Raheem’s life, I will watch and care for him – and that costs money.

“So I need to earn enough to give him everything he needs as he grows into the man his father wanted him to be.

“Raheem is my son now and the reality is he’s another mouth to shut.

“Eventually I will have my own children too, so I have to earn as much as possible.

“I have to raise the next generation of Eubanks – and do it as well as I can.”
