Chris Eubank Jr. may have lost the biggest payday of his career because Conor Benn failed a drug test and they were unable to resolve the family rivalry that had been brewing since their famed fighting dads squared off in the 1990s.
According to Eddie Hearn, the event’s co-promoter, all 20,000 seats at the O2 Arena in London for the fight in October 2022 were sold out in minutes. The bright side is that the plot twist has the potential to make the rescheduled battle an even greater deal.
“Training camps are not cheap but it was more devastating for the other fighters on the card because I’ve made good money in my career,” Eubank Jr told the Guardian in the build-up to his subsequent bout with Liam Smith at Manchester Arena. “If I was to retire tomorrow, I’d still have had a great life.”
What is the Net Worth of Chris Eubank Jr?
As of 2018, Eubank Jr. has a net worth of around £1.6 million ($1.8m), according to Net Worth Discover. Since then, he has gone on to win five of five fights, including a unanimous decision victory against Liam Williams in Cardiff in February 2022.
TalkSport claims that Eubank Jr. owns a vehicle collection valued just under £1m ($1.2m), including a Lamborghini Huracan (£215,000) and a McLaren 720S (£218,000).
