Never really been sold on Collins. He basically came along at the right time. Eubank had no business losing to that guy twice.
Eubank slipped a level himself when he moved up to smw and became a lazy fighter
Terrible match up for Benn. That fight has Toney-Barkley 2.0 written on it. I agree that Benn gets stopped late
Toney was a step above anyone the Eubank had ever faced. He was the better counterpuncher and he was better at fighting off the front foot than Eubank, who tended to look awkward and off balance at times.
Watson was on a different universe to Clinton Woods or Glen Johnson. He looked special at his best. Woods and Glencoffe were ordinary.
