Chiswick Dentist Floors Eubank 

Ralph "Painless" Gilhooly knocks out former world boxing champ

It was something that Nigel Benn never managed to do but it took local Chiswick dentist, Dr. Ralph Gilhooly, just a few minutes to put Chris Eubank on the canvas.

The two came together in the ring during the filming of "At Home with the Eubanks" a fly-on-the-wall documentary series about the family life of the former world middleweight boxing champion. Chris visited Ralph (see picture left) for a check-up and then took him to a gym where he thought he was going to teach the dentist to box. In fact it was Eubank who received the lesson with Ralph flooring him with a pilehammer right.

The welterweight dentist had as much boxing experience as the average Audley Harrison opponent (i.e. he'd never boxed before in his life).

The show which is a Carlton Production will go on air on Channel 5 on Tuesday October 7th and Ralph's moment of glory is likely to feature.

Ralph assures patients that his boxing talent will not be used for tooth extraction. His surgery is well stocked with the latest dental equipment for painless treatment.
