Wilson showed up to support his half-brother Chris Eubank Jnr at a sparring session ahead of the latter’s fight against Arthur Abraham tonight
THE first public appearance between Chris Eubank and his son Nathanael Wilson has been caught on camera after reconciling following a 27-year rift.
It came as Wilson turned up at a Chris Eubank Jnr sparring session ahead of his fight against Arthur Abraham tonight (Saturday) at the Wembley Arena.
The two are half-brothers, but have had very contrasting upbringings.
Wilson, who says he hasn’t had a relationship with his father, turned up at the public workout to offer Eubank Jnr his support.
Eubank Snr is of course the extrovert man in his son Eubank Jnr’s corner for fight nights.
Wilson was embraced by his dad, who placed a hand on his shoulder and asked if they “were cool”.
The 28-year-old then replied: “Yes, we’re cool.” The moment was captured by iFL TV.
Wilson’s mum, Cynthia Wilson, was with Eubank Snr for only six months when she fell pregnant.
Eubank Snr chose to have no involvement with Wilson, after requesting a paternity test,
He later agreed to an out-of-court settlement believed to be around £30,000 for maintenance costs.
But in February this year the two are believed to have settled their rift after Wilson agreed to play his old man in a film about the tragic Michael Watson.
The ex-boxer was left with severe brain inuries after a fight with Eubank Snr in 1991.
