'If I Could Have One More Knockout Shot, I'd Love To Land It On The Jaw Of Chris Eubank'

'If I Could Have One More Knockout Shot, I'd Love To Land It On The Jaw Of Chris Eubank'
By PJ Browne

It's seven weeks since Nick Blackwell was woken from a coma which was induced following his defeat to Chris Eubank Jr. on March 26th.

The middleweight bout between the two was stopped in the tenth round with many believing a halt should have been called much earlier.

Speaking to The Sun, Blackwell has - for the first time since being woken - addressed the fight and what happened after.

Three days following the fight, Chris Eubank Jr. and Sr. gave a press conference. It is this, rather than anything that happened during the bout, which has angered Blackwell.

If I could have one more knockout shot, I’d love to land it on the jaw of Chris Eubank.

During that press conference, Chris Eubank Jr. claimed he had taken it easy on Blackwell for fear he would do permanent damage to his opponent.

That the media event took place in the first place went completely against the wishes of Blackwell's camp.

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.

Chris Eubank Jr. defended the press conference saying that media had demanded comment from him and his team and if none had been forthcoming, it would have come across as cold.

At just 25, Blackwell's boxing career is over.
