Boxing Legend Chris Eubank Sr’s quiet life in and around Brighton and Hove
Chris Eubank SR, a former British professional boxer, has been living in Brighton for years, making the Sussex seaside city his permanent home. With his late son Sebastian being born in Brighton, the boxing legend set down roots here over 30-years ago and doesn’t seem to have looked back. After selling his GBP4 million pound Tudor-style home in 2004 after splitting from his wife Karron, Eubank still decided to stay in the area and has been frequently spotted around central Hove.
Whether he is visiting the Goldstone Business Park or getting his car hand washed by Hove Station, Eubank Sr is quite the local face around town. The ex-boxing legend drives a Rolls Royce Wraith, but beforehand he famously drove his large truck around the city, which he has since sold to a man in Portslade. As well as being famously spotted in his fancy cars, the boxer is also spotted on foot, going on walks along Hove seafront.

The boxer, who was born in 1966, has also been spotted in Brighton recently on our TV screens, appearing on Googlebox with his son Eubank Jr last year. The pair were sat in Chris Eubank Jr’s Hove mansion, which was burgled last year. While the exact address of Eubank Sr is unknown, he did previously live on Upper Drive in Hove, where ‘At Home with the Eubanks’ was filmed.

A mural was painted in Brighton for Sebastian, who was brought up in the city of Brighton and Hove. While Eubank Sr has spent a lot of time between London and Brighton over the last few years, the boxing legend still resides in Brighton.
He is still a big family man and loves living by the sea.
