FOR those who argue there are no characters left in boxing, think again.

Two Chris Eubanks produced some terrific entertainment at the Metro Radio Arena.

Chris Eubank Jnr, as unorthodox as his father, put down the Czech Republic’s Stephan Horvath twice in rounds five and six.

In truth, the Brighton talent looked as though he could stop the Prague fighter at any point.

The end came two minutes and eight seconds into round six after Horvath had visited the canvas for the fourth time, referee Andrew Wright correctly calling a halt.

Eubank Jnr was good. So was his dad.

Chris Snr was in his son’s corner for the first time, but said almost nothing to his lad.

Instead he postured in the ring between rounds and looked in his element just as he was as one of Britain’s middleweight greats.

His son does not look a bad prospect either, as he stretched his undefeated run to 16 contests.
