Chris Eubank delivers one of the first Xbox Series X consoles at 12.01am on launch day in Brighton

From Chris’ home county, a Brighton and Hove based winner was one of the first in the UK to receive the consoles, delivered by the former world champion Chris Eubank himself

Celebrating the UK launch of the world’s most powerful console, Argos announced the winner of its Xbox Series X competition, which saw former world champion Chris Eubank safely deliver the highly anticipated console to a lucky gamer at 12.01am this morning, beating everyone else to the punch.

Lucky winner Angela Beck, from Chris’ local county Brighton and Hove, was snapped alongside the ex-boxer with the new Xbox Series X, as she received her prize from the boxing legend.

Earlier this month, the leading retailer launched a knockout competition, enlisting the help of the all-powerful former world champion Chris Eubank, and a team of ex-boxers across the UK, to safely deliver the first units.

Starring in a viral video to promote the competition, Eubank was surrounded by his boxing memorabilia whilst button mashing on the new Xbox Wireless Controller which accompanies every Xbox Series X, the world’s most powerful console. He realizes that, as some of the most ‘powerful’ people in the country, it is in fact him and his fellow ex-boxers who should be delivering the Xbox Series X console, before heading out to his own Argos Fast Track van.

Chris Eubank commented, “As one of the fastest and most powerful boxers in history, it only feels natural to deliver one of these mighty consoles more quickly than anyone else is able to…beating them to the punch, if you will.”

Peter Wray, Senior Buyer at Sainsbury’s Argos, said, “We pride ourselves on our Fast Track delivery service, so being able to deliver one of the most in-demand consoles of the year to our customers, just one minute after launch, provides the ultimate convenience. Partnering with Chris Eubank and his team of ex-boxers has enabled us to create even more of a memorable experience for our customers during this monumental launch.”

The Xbox Series X goes on sale across the UK on Tuesday 10th November from £449.99. Customers can find out more information about the Xbox Series X here.
