Interview: Boxer Chris Eubank Jnr is on the comeback trail at the O2 http://www.newsshopper.co.uk/leisure/latest/11738875._Straight_back_in_the_deep_end___Chris_Eubank_Jnr_promises_to_a_major_comeback_at_Greenwich_s_O2/
Chris Eubank is a British retired boxer who held world titles at middleweight and super middleweight. He was a world champion for over five years, undefeated in his first ten years as a professional, and remained undefeated at middleweight. His world title contests against fellow Britons Nigel Benn and Michael Watson helped British boxing ride a peak of popularity in the 1990s and Eubank's eccentric personality made him one of the most recognisable celebrities of the period.
Mitch Griffith's first, but unexpected success came when he painted a portrait of the boxer Chris Eubank and sent it to his agent. Eubank ended up loving the portrait and commisioning Griffith to a series of pictures to promote his matches. His work ranges from commercial illustration to magazine covers and muals. The self-taught artist's highly detailed, figurative paintings are honest and direct, experessing in anxiety about modern life.
