Chris Eubank Jr and Conor Benn collide on October 8 in a hugely anticipated fight at London’s O2 Arena.

Nearly 30 years on from the second contest between Chris Eubank Sr and Nigel Benn, their sons will meet in a family grudge match quite unlike anything else in boxing history.

A sell-out crowd is expected to watch 33-year-old Eubank Jr, nominally a middleweight, take on a man seven years his junior who is coming up from welterweight. 

A catchweight of 157lbs has been agreed for the fight, with each man standing to be fined a sizeable amount of their prize purse should they fail to hit that mark.

Chris Eubank Jr. vs Conor Benn purse, prize money

According to reports, Eubank Jr. and Benn stand to earn around £3.5 million ($3.7m) for the fight. Those figures do not include pay-per-view bonuses.

However, for every pound they are over the catchweight, they are set to be fined around $80,000. Eubank Jr. has said he has “too much respect for money” to risk “throwing away” such a sum.

What is Chris Eubank Jr.’s net worth?

Per Net Worth Discover, Eubank Jr. was worth around £1.6m ($1.8m) back in 2018. Five wins in five fights since then, including February’s unanimous-decision win over Liam Williamson in Cardiff, will have added to those earnings.

What is Conor Benn’s net worth? 

Benn’s net worth is reportedly around £1.4 million ($1.5m). His father’s successful boxing career meant he wanted for nothing, but the younger Benn insists he has never taken money for granted. He previously revealed he worked 11 hours a day as a painter and decorator in Spain for “€20 a day” despite his family living in a gated mansion.
