Chris Eubanks has bravely opened up about the tragic death of his son, which he says will ‘never end’.
The British boxing legend spoke proudly about Sebastian, who died of a heart attack in July at the age of 29.
Sebastian – a 2-0 professional boxer, personal trainer and motivational speaker – was watching the sunset in Dubai when tragedy struck.
Dad Chris said on Good Morning Britain: “We have to be objective, what have I learned that can give people a perspective
“Sebastian was a true champion. My son was a warrior that he was there to help the poor and the underprivileged. He was there to help the youth.
“He took part in a revolution in Sudan. He was big on Africa. And now I’m taking him with his wife, his child Rahim Sebastian.
“I rejoice for my son. I am not going to break. There are two thoughts, the physical I will never end.
“No parent can be over because you’ve invested all this time, energy, from birth to 29.
“And then he’s gone. So you can’t recover from that.
“But if you know the spirit world, then within you, if you believe in the spirit world, my son is with me, you remember who he was.”
Sebastian’s widow Salma Abdelati, who has a one-year-old boy, Rahim, has started a foundation in his honor.
Eubanks said: “My son was awesome
“I didn’t know the particular parts of him, but it’s all coming back now. I’m hearing from other people how he was, how he was with the kids.
“With his wife we are setting up a foundation. This foundation will bring awareness.
“It’s not the money I’m looking for, it’s the awareness of the poor, we have to take care of the poor.
“We have to take care of our neighbor. That’s what Sebastian was about. So I’m glad to have him.”
