CHRIS EUBANK JR is facing Conor Benn in a second generation match-up - nearly three decades since their dads last fought. It was in 1990 and again in 1993 that Eubank Sr and Nigel Benn fought two brutal world title fights . Eubank Sr won the first one via 9th-round TKO, picking up the WBO middleweight title in the process, but the second fight, which took place at super-middleweight, ended in a draw. Now 29 years on, their sons will clash at catchweight. Eubank Jr , a middleweight who has also campaigned at 168lbs, will come down to his lowest weight ever 157lbs to challenge Benn - a career welterweight. It was a fight which was first floated into the ether after Eubank Jr beat Liam Williams earlier this year. Nobody took the idea of it seriously, apart from Benn, who has struggled to find a competitive fight at 147lbs.

Last week I asked, “If you could change one thing about the culture of your country by adopting a practice or attitude or folkway from another country, what would you change and why?” Meg recommends “the Japanese practice of bowing, not only to each other as a way of greeting or farewell, but also to the rooms one enters and exits.” Here’s her pitch for wider adoption: This moment of mindful respect for the people and spaces we encounter strikes me as a way to affect all of our interactions in ways that foster a deeper connection and a pathway to peace.
