Epic Studios is going to play host to Chris Eubank’s One Man Show on December 1st, 2017 and the event is causing quite a stir.
With VIP tickets already sold out, it is clear that Eubank has plenty of fans in the local area who are interested in what the British super-middleweight legend is going to share in his ‘One Man Show’. Standard tickets are just £35 and you can still grab yours via the Epic Studios website, Ticketmaster or the University of East Anglia.
The ‘One Man Show’ will consist of a combination of stories and some motivational speaking from Eubank and is very exclusive, with only 2 dates currently planned in the UK.
During his professional boxing career, Eubank was undefeated for ten years (from 1985 to 1995) and a world champion for five. His bravery in the ring, alongside a unique sense of style and notoriously eccentric personality, gained him enormous popularity during the 90s and established celebrity status during this time and beyond.
You may remember some of Eubank’s statement outfits (that won him six fashion-related awards between 1991 and 2001) or his modelling appearances for Versace and Vivienne Westwood. He was a cover model for Esquire in April 1992 and has featured in TV adverts for McDonald’s, Jaffa Cakes, Nescafe and Royal Mail. Eubank also gave presenting a go, with a one-off guest presenter appearance on Top of the Pops in 1996 and his own weekly, one-hour radio show ‘Eubank’s People’, that ran during 1999, on Talk Radio. If you missed all that, maybe you caught his appearance in Phats & Small music video ‘Turn Around’?
More recently Eubank was one of the personalities to take part in the 2015 series of ‘I’m a Celebrity…Get Me Out of Here’, lasting 17 days in the jungle. And just last week, he and Joe Calzaghe took boxing fans for a trip down memory lane as they relived their fight for the WBO world super middleweight title in 1997 in the Daily Mail, with both men describing it as the hardest match of their careers.
“I caught him with a sweet left hook and remember him not just falling, he flew across the ring into the corner. Stands up, nods to me, I’ll never forget it,” said Calzaghe. “Two or three days after, I couldn’t even get out of bed…no fight was as hard as that.”
Eubank added:”I thought that if he wasn’t a real fighter, if he wasn’t a warrior of genuine calibre, I would find him out in the 11th or 12th [round]…and he held on. He won a unanimous decision. And very well deserved. He was a genuinely great fighter. He had the speed and a good boxing brain.”
These days, Eubank leaves the fighting to his son, Chris Eubank Jnr, and we are curious to hear what he is focusing on himself these days. Why not join us to find out?
