Chris Eubank has ended his feud with Naseem Hamed by becoming an adviser to the World Boxing Organisation featherweight champion. Eubank, a former WBO middleweight and super-middleweight champion said: "I spoke to George Foreman one day and he told me if I felt wronged by Naz I had to put that behind me and help the kid along. George told me to hug him and take him in. My relationship with him [Hamed] is to advise him on certain things. I've spoken to him about things in terms of carrying yourself in a proper fashion. Boxing is a business in which you have to enthral and infuriate. You have got to be controversial but also show you are human."
