Nick Blackwell would like to knock out “inhuman and disgusting” Chris Eubank

"They were grabbing as much attention as they could"

Darragh Murphy

Nick Blackwell has no hard feelings about the fight that forced him into retirement.

But it’s the behaviour in the media of his final opponent Chris Eubank Jr. and his father following the final bell that has infuriated the 25-year-old.

Blackwell had no choice but to hang up his gloves following his TKO defeat to Eubank Jr. in March after which he was put in a medically-induced coma.

He’s remained relatively quiet in the press since waking from his coma but he’s just issued a scathing criticism of both Eubanks in relation to how they acted while Blackwell was being rushed to hospital.

“If I could have one more knockout shot, I’d love to land it on the jaw of Chris Eubank,” Blackwell told The Sun.

“I haven’t any hard feelings about the fight because you’re in there to win and try and hurt someone, it’s just the stuff he has done after. It’s inhuman, it’s disgusting.


“They were trying to make themselves look like the good guys when they are the opposite.

“My family and friends were begging them not to talk, but they ignored it. I’ve only just been shown the press conference and I know exactly what happened. It isn’t human what they’ve done.

“They were grabbing as much attention as they could. I was still in a coma but they went ahead and did it.

“That’s the Eubanks, isn’t it? They just want attention, no matter if it’s a bad or a good thing.”
