British boxer Eubank Jr. wears rainbow armband at weigh-in


Eubank responded with claims about Smith’s fidelity to his wife, and Sky Sports apologized for “personal and homophobic remarks.”

On Friday, Eubank wore a pro-LGBTQ armband on his right arm throughout the weigh-in and faceoff with Smith ahead of their bout at Manchester’s AO Arena on Saturday.

Eubank, whose father was also a former champion, later tweeted: “We don’t discriminate… we don’t alienate. We want boxing & sport as a whole, to be all inclusive.”

The British Boxing Board of Control said it is “considering the conduct” of the fighters. Eubank had also made disparaging remarks about Smith’s hometown of Liverpool.
