He posted: “Rest easy up there dad. We love you and we’ll try do you proud.”

Simon and his twin brother Peter were both older siblings to British boxing legend Chris Eubank.

All three boxed but it was Chris who went on to achieve a world championship career at middleweight and super-middleweight.

Simon boxed lower down at super-welterweight and finished his career in 1992 with seven wins and 20 losses.

Twin Peter retired a year earlier with a record of 14 wins and 21 losses.

Chris boxed until 1998 and shared one of the most memorable rivalries in British history with Nigel Benn, resulting in a win and a draw.

He would later coach and mentor his son Chris Jr, who is one of boxing’s biggest stars in the UK.

Chris and Simon’s influence also carried over to Harlem, who is currently an 18-0 super-lightweight prospect.
