His devastated dad Chris Eubank Sr has hailed his "loved" son a "deep thinker" as he paid a heartfelt tribute to him.
"Never did I ever imagine I would write these words or experience the feeling I now have at the loss of my son," he said,
"My family and I are devastated to hear of the death of Sebastian just days before what would have been his 30th birthday.
“He leaves his wife Salma, his son Raheem born just a month ago, his mother Karron Meadows, brothers Nathanael, Chris, Jr, Joseph, one sister Emily and countless relatives and friends.
“Sebastian grew up in Hove in England but in the last few years made his life in Dubai where he had a wide circle of friends and was a leader in the adoption of a healthy lifestyle and of alternative therapies."
Eubank Sr said his son had been working as a personal trainer and professional boxder.
"Sebastian was also a deep thinker who liked to challenge accepted wisdom," he added.
"He was loved and respected by all who knew him and will be forever in the thoughts of friends and family.
"As a family we now kindly ask to be given space and privacy to celebrate his life and remember the son, the brother, the husband, the friend.”
