Has anyone seen this?

Not that this fight deserves 2 chairs and a table, a camera crew, dodgy lighting, and Jonny Nelson asking his usual brand of probing irrelevant/confusing questions.

However, I found it both embarrassing and interesting.

Eubank jnr comes across smart and in control. Gary just sits there either not saying much or coming out with phrases that would make Clubber Lang blush lol oh yeah Gary/Spike also thinks he would beat GGG  NOW.

Eubanks calls him out over Spikes tracsh talking comments on social media and Gary/Spike genuinely looks shook. I see O'Sulivan getting sparked silly

Sorry is this ok to do MODS??

The gloves are off was only for big fights once upon a time..

Maybe early purchase numbers have forced Hearn to provide more of this crap..

Actually that was one of the best I've seen for a while in this series.

Thought O'Sullivan looked very relaxed though.

Looking forward to it and have been for a while. Will this fight make me buy the ppv, that is the question. Will have to see on the night


Though I will add I've never seen O'Sullivan fight, it's just the chemistry between them makes me like the fight.

Only ever seen O'Sullivan when he fought BJS and, from what I remember, he was extremely one dimensional. Also remember hearing people say he got lucky in a decision over Matthew Hall.

He's a strong guy with good timing though O'Sullivan, let's hope he can land a few hayemakers early on and make it interesting.

People can't be buying that Josh Whyte is 'the biggest fight in the U.K.' So they've got to tag this hype on. Interesting fight but come off it, nothing special.

They both come to fight these two, both strong punchers and there's needle, their styles should mesh nicely too. Got to be honest, I quite enjoyed that gloves are off.

Why not let's have more of them, I say?

Maybe a bit ott, but enjoyed it none the less.

But this is European class if not higher, still don't see why you can't have a gloves are off for a domestic level fight or European level when the chemistry is good though.

Eventually these kind of things get a bit repetitive. Nothing against them, but Sky are using them purely to drive ppv sales now. If they are going to budget and cost I would rather not have them spend the money on these things and instead spend it on putting together good cards rather than these kind of reality tv "behind the scenes" shows which are pretty manufactured. More boxing, less reality tv please.

Very well spoken Eubank jr......No cursing and seems like he's been well brought up...

Bit silly but I think they did it because of the previous needle. I think Snr would have made it even more hilarious.

Found the whole thing dull. Spike staying quiet, trying to get into Eubank's head. Eubank trying to carry it with his personality, which is not particularly developed. Dull as dishwater with nothing of interest being said.

Using The gloves are off for undercard fights now.....

Eddie seems to be abusing the PPV format and this one....Must be worried about sales.

If sales don't improve what next...Whyte throws a punch at the weigh in ??

Where's Strongy these days.

Thought he'd be proper gloating about what a git big Ed is being with the PPV's lately. (Hope he's not gone bust, Strongy not Ed)

We seem to be seeing more and more of these to sell fights as they can't do it on ability alone. Waste of time imo and adds nothing to anything.

Oh and isn't it Eubank, not Eubanks???

These PPVs are pap. Fair play, Fury v Klit can be PPV. But this rubbish. More to come in 2016. And I was a Hearn supporter! Well, of sorts.
