His passing was made even more heartbreaking by the fact he’d just fathered a baby boy a few weeks earlier.
The Eubank family are still getting to grips with the loss of Seb but are grateful his legacy will live on through his son Raheem.
Eubank Jr told SunSport: “It’s been a hell of a year.
“I’ve never had to deal with anything as hard as this in my life.
“My brother, who I was very close with, I just thank God he had a son just before he passed away and now he lives on via his son.
“He was an awesome human being, and he will always be remembered and he will always be with me.”

“Going to dangerous countries where there were revolutions going on for justice and getting involved setting up orphanages and helping the poor.
