Chris Eubank junior has lost none of his drive for boxing greatness despite having all the trappings of fame – including the one-off supercar.

The IBO world champion’s £300,000 customised Mansory McLaren 720s has been grabbing plenty of attention since its arrival in the city.

In fact, it’s unmistakable throaty roar maybe too much for some reveals the Hove resident.

“It’s one of a kind. It’s a very, very naughty vehicle,” Eubank Jr admitted.

“Two weeks ago my neighbour put their house up for sale.

“It’s an extremely loud car. I am not going to say that’s the reason but the car arrives – and a week later the house is on sale. In fact, it sold a couple of days ago.

“I don’t know what to think about that.

“I am trying to be as responsible as I can when ever I am driving around the houses. There is an option to turn the sound down, which I always do, but it is still fairly loud. But I am being as considerate as I can.

“The engine and exhaust has been customised and enhanced. But never over 20 miles per hour in Hove!”

That jokey reference to the city’s speed limits is understandable but talk of a ring return for the Brighton fighter is also gathering speed since The Argus exclusive last week.

The 29-year-old revealed an announcement could be made in the next few weeks for another world title shot, hopefully in September and in this country.

Supercars and appearances on Celebrity Gogglebox alongside his father Chris Sr aside, it had gone rather quiet on Eubank Jr’s plans following his impressive points win over fellow Brit James DeGale in February.

But Eubank Jr insists that is not because he has lost any of his desire to fight and is just waiting for the wheels to turn under his link up with PBC and ITV Box Office.

He said: “I’ve said I want to fight but there is only so much I can do. They have to put the fights on for me until I have made my own promotional company – which will probably happen at some point.

“I think that will be a cool thing to do further down the line.

“But for right now I have to leave it to my promotional team.”

And any suggestions that his burning hunger to succeed has waned due to his financial success gets short shrift.

Eubank Jr warned: “If your goal is to get the nice house and car, and the rest of it, then you’re never going to get there.

“You have to love the sport and if you love the sport, when you do achieve the things you want to achieve and acquire the financial stability you have always dreamed off, it doesn’t just go. You will always want to continue.

“There are the fighters who get the money and let that sidetrack them. They get into the clubs, girls, drink and drugs and that affects their performance.

“The love for the sport and hunger is still there and it’s always there with every fighter who is able to achieve – it’s just how responsible you’re going to be with it and I am a responsible guy.”

According to Matchroom Boxing chief Eddie Hearn, John Ryder has been offered a fight with Eubank and “if the numbers were right” they would be interested.

Eubank Jr is leaving the arrangements to his team but said: “It’s a good fight if it happens.

“I am always up for a nice domestic dust-up.”
