Who was Sebastian Eubank?
Sebastian Eubank was born in Brighton in 1991.
Like his father and brother, he had also fought as a professional boxer.
He tragically died drowning in Dubai days before his 30th birthday in July 2021, just a month after he had become a father for the first time when wife Salma gave birth to son Raheem.
Chris Eubank Sr 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.
“Sebastian grew up in Hove in England but in the last few years made his life in Dubai where he had a wide circle of friends and was a leader in the adoption of a healthy lifestyle and of alternative therapies.”
