GMB viewers all say the same thing after tense clash between Conor Benn and Chris Eubank Jr ahead of their huge fight | The Sun
GOOD Morning Britain viewers likened Conor Benn and Chris Eubank Jr to feuding teenagers as they came face to face on GMB ahead of their mega fight.
The much-anticipated bout will see the two fighters look to secure bragging rights almost 30 years after their fathers' second iconic battle in the ring.
The temperature in the GMB studio dropped to icy levels as the two rivals, flanked by burly security guards, entered.
Host Ben Shephard announced each individually in the style of a boxing announcer.
Conor, who is jumping up two weight classes for the 157lbs catchweight fight, looked stony-faced throughout and his eyes bore into his more experienced rival.
While Eubank, 33, who has come down in weight to make the fight happen, maintained a nonchalant demeanour, insisting he'll beat the 26-year-old at just 60 per cent of his capabilities.
