Chris Eubank says he will 'never get over' son Sebastian's death
Chris Eubank has spoken out on his son’s death, sharing a poignant and heartbreaking message as he refused to ‘break down’ about the tragedy.
Sebastian Eubank was found dead on a beach in Dubai after drowning, just days before his 30th birthday in July this year.
It was later confirmed that he died of a heart attack.
Chris, 55, said on Good Morning Britain: ‘Sebastian was a true champion. My son was a warrior in that he was out there to help the poor and disenfranchised. He was out there to help the youth.’
He added that now he is ‘taking on’ Sebastian’s mission along with his son and wife.
‘I rejoice for my son,’ he said. ‘I’m sad, I’m on television now so I’ve got to be objective. I’m not going to break down.’
‘The physical, I will never get over. No parent can get over. You’ve invested all this time, from birth to 29, all this time, all this energy, all this love and then he’s gone. You can’t get recover from that,’ he said.
However, Chris said he is focusing his energy into a foundation he started in his son’s memory, which aims to ‘look after the poor and disenfranchised’.
The boxing legend’s son had followed in his father’s footsteps by becoming a professional in the sport, before going on to make his Mixed Martial Arts debut last year.
In a touching tribute at the time of his death, Chris said: ‘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.’
Good Morning Britain airs weekdays at 6am on ITV.
