In a tragic turn of events, British boxing legend Chris Eubank lost his 29-year-old son Sebastian after he drowned in the sea. The body of Sebastian Eubank, an accomplished mixed martial arts fighter, was discovered on a beach near his Dubai home. His untimely death happened just days before his 30th birthday.
The MMA icon had become a father for the first time barely a month ago after his wife Salma gave birth to their son Raheem. A heartbroken Chris Eubank mourned his son's death with a grieving message. "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," he shared in his statement.
Who was Sebastian Eubank's wife?
Sebastian Eubank was the third among Chris Eubank's five children, born to his first wife Karron Meadows in 1991. His 30th birthday was set to be celebrated on July 18, 2021, before which he passed.
Though he grew up in Hove, Sebastian later settled in Dubai where he worked as a personal trainer, besides being a professional MMA fighter. There, he married his wife Salma and started a family with her. It is not clearly known how exactly Sebastian and Salma Eubank fell in love or when they got married. Despite her husband's fame, it is believed that Salma Eubank chose to stay out of the spotlight.
She is known to be between 25 to 28 years old, and hails from a Muslim family. A month ago, Salma Eubank gave birth to her and Sebastian's first child. The proud father had shared a photo with his newborn son at that time. Little was it known that such a tragedy would devastate the family a month later.
Salma Eubank has not yet issued any public statement about her beloved husband's tragic death. Meanwhile, other members of his family have mourned him, as his mother said, "Our whole family is grieving at the huge loss of our son and brother, Sebastian."
Brother Chris Eubank Jr tweeted, "Rest easy little brother, I love you and you will be missed always." He further added in an elaborate statement, “My brother Sebastian Eubank was a special man… a righteous man… who always put others before himself. A man of many talents, boxing, MMA, poetry, music, coaching, cooking the list goes on but the most important thing to him was helping others less fortunate than himself. I haven’t cried since I was 12 years old… yesterday I cried the whole day. I’m sorry I wasn’t there to watch your back like a big brother’s supposed to. Can’t believe you’re really gone man but you’ll always be in my heart, mind & spirit.”
While remembering his son, Chris Eubank shared, "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." He also called him a "deep thinker loved and respected by all who knew him."
