One Night In Mill Street
On St Patrick’s Day, 1995, Chris Eubank, then world super middleweight champion undefeated in 18 title defences, was in Cork to take on his latest challenger, the Irishman Steve Collins, who was dismissed as a chancer and palooka by many. Andrew Gallimore’s wildly entertaining documentary revisits the circus that developed around the fight and uncovers a saga involving mind games, blarney, hypnotism and the Eurovision Song Contest. It’s a compelling story, related here by those who witnessed events first-hand. One Night in Millstreet is knockout filmmaking that will be appreciated far beyond boxing aficionados.
