We can learn a lot about a person if we know what types of things he or she talks about or comments on the most frequently. There are numerous topics with which Nick Blackwell is associated, including Eubank Jr. and Eubanks. Most recently, Nick Blackwell has been quoted saying: “My family and friends were begging them not to talk, but they ignored it. I've only just been shown the press conference and I know exactly what happened. It isn't human what they've done. They were grabbing as much attention as they could. I was still in a coma but they went ahead and did it. That's the Eubanks, isn't it? They just want attention, no matter if it's a bad or a good thing.” in the article Nick Blackwell brands the Eubanks 'inhuman and disgusting'.
"We were both there doing a job."
"I haven't any hard feelings about the fight because you're in there to win and try and hurt someone – it's just the stuff he has done after. It's inhuman, it's disgusting,". "They were trying to make themselves look like the good guys when they are[...]
The night of the fight he went partying. He was celebrating. You've won the title, fine, you can go out and celebrate. I would have wanted to go to the hospital and be by his side until he woke up.
"The people who saved my life were the referee, the person who put me in the coma and the people at St Mary's Hospital. The Eubanks didn't save my life". "Chris Jr was asked later if he'd pick the belt or my health. He refused to answer. I'm not bei[...]

Ideally, at some stage, I'd like to personally thank every single one of the people who have donated money. I truly mean that. I want to make that happen.
Many boxers are forced to retire and have only their last purse to their name. But, thanks to some incredible human beings, I stand to have a little bit more, and that means I can go on and do something with my life.
Then, of course, you have all the people who have raised money for me. It's incredible. It shows the power of the boxing community, the boxing family, and I've been humbled by everyone's generosity.
"I don't ever cry or get emotional," "but reading through all the messages people have been sending me has been really touching. I've had tons of people calling me a 'warrior' and a 'hero' and saying how brave I am. It really did take me by surprise.
People have said to me Eubank Jr. doesn't look like he's training very hard for this fight, and that he's just sparring novices, but I know he wouldn't be so stupid to do that. He knows this is the hardest fight of his life.
I think Eubank Jr. is so disrespectful. He should be ashamed of himself.
But this is the sort of thing the Eubanks do. They like to be controversial, they like to get people talking, and they don't care what anyone thinks of them. They've also got nobody around them brave enough to pull them up on any of it.
"I don't follow what Eubank Jr does,". "I don't follow him on Snapchat, I don't follow him on Twitter, I don't follow him on Facebook and I don't follow him on Instagram. I'm not focusing on what he's doing. He could post a clip of himself knocking [...]
"He put a video up on social media, for the whole world to see, of him knocking out a kid who hasn't even had a pro fight and it's disgusting,". "The amateur kid is building his confidence and trying to learn from a so-called professional, but someh[...]
"I'd love to have that accolade to be able to say that I was a British champion, so anything's possible,". "There's quite a few good names out and I'm willing to fight all of them.".
I was there when he fought Buglioni and I wanted the fight with him straight away. I had a fight called off early October so I'd been training for 12 weeks solid when it got called off so I've had about a 16-week camp for this fight. I'd be fit for [...]
"I think it's because of the casino we're fighting at,". "I think they want to get the show done as early as they can. I'm the first fight on. They're squeezing me on.".
"I was offered the Max Bursak fight again,". "And I said 'Yeah that's the fight I want'. I thought I beat him in Ukraine and it'd be good to settle it in Monaco or on a Channel 5 (Hennessy's TV platform) show but they wanted it at 74kgs (163lbs) and[...]
"Words can't describe how happy I am, it's taken a lot of ups and downs, dedication and hard work but it's finally starting to pay off. I'm looking forward to my first fight with Hennessy Sports on Channel 5 in October.
I can't thank Mick (Hennessy), Will (Storey) and Mark (Kent) enough for helping to make this happen, I won't disappoint.
