It was a great night for the Eubank family on Saturday as Chris Eubank Jr knocked out Avni Yildirim in the third round of the World Boxing Super Series: super-middleweight quarter-finals, retaining his IBO super-middleweight title in the process.

Eubank Jr pummelled his Turkish opponent with a flurry of punches in the third before a crunching left hook provided the knockout blow. 

And after the convincing win, Eubank Jr sent a very strong message to fellow Brit George Groves - who he could face in the semi-finals.

"I'm here to dominate this tournament. I'm sending a message out there that I'm coming," Eubank Jr said.

"George Groves, get through your next fight so we can give the boxing fans what they want to see. I think it's going to be exactly the same as what we saw tonight.

I'm not playing anymore. Groves, I'm coming for you."

It means Eubank Jr. extended his record to 26-1 with his Dad, Chris Eubank Sr, watching on.

Eubank Sr is, of course, a boxing legend in his own right and is helping his son also become a massive success in the sport.

And after Eubank Jr’s victory, his father was by his side in the ring afterward and many people noticed how he dealt with the ring girls that were taking some of the spotlight off his son and himself.

And with Eubank Sr back in the news, we’ve discovered an old video involving the 51-year-old.

It happened during an interview with Eddie Hearn alongside Tony Bellew which took place last year - and it involves an absolutely hilarious impersonation of Eubank Sr.

In fact, it was so good that it had Bellew - and us - in tears.
