Chris Eubank Sr said in a statement: “Never did I ever imagine I would write these words or experience the feeling I now have at the loss of my son. My family and I are devastated to hear of the death of Sebastian just days before what would have been his 30th birthday”
“He leaves his wife Salma, his son Raheem born just a month ago, his mother Karron Meadows, brothers Nathanael, Chris Jr, Joseph, one sister Emily and countless relatives and friends”
“Sebastian grew up in Hove in England but in the last few years made his life in Dubai where he had a wide circle of friends and was a leader in the adoption of a healthy lifestyle and of alternative therapies”
“As well as being a personal trainer and professional boxer, Sebastian was also a deep thinker who liked to challenge accepted wisdom. He was loved and respected by all who knew him and will be forever in the thoughts of friends and family”
In a statement, Sebastian’s grieving mother Karron has also wrote: “Our whole family is grieving at the huge loss of our son and brother, Sebastian.
“Please respect our grief and privacy while we try to comprehend our loss.”
Undefeated former world super middleweight champion Joe Calzaghe said: “Really Saddened to hear the news of the passing of Seb Eubank. Thoughts and Prayers to Chris and family.”
British heavyweight Derek Chisora added: “RIP Seb Eubank. My thoughts and prayers are with the Eubank family and all the people who knew him at this time. Terribly sad news.”
Sebastian Eubank was an inspiration to many, he was a good soul, a decent human being and a humble warrior. He was the son of British boxing legend Chris Eubank, and sadly passed away at the tender age of 29.
His body was found on a beach in Dubai. Sebastian was 2-0 as a professional boxer and also fought in MMA. He was a talented boxer with excellent amateur pedigree. A massive loss for so many reasons, there aren’t many good souls in this world and he was one of them for sure. God bless his soul. Much love warrior & lion of truth.
