Default Re: Nigel Benn vs Chris Eubank Better Resume

There's the cruiser weight argument but at the same time, Benn was a smallish middleweight. He was a very small super mw and Eubank by comparison had a much larger frame, plus he never really won any plaudits at CW he just acquitted himself well so I don't pay too much attention to that. You have to give Eubank the nod as he beat Benn and then drew so its settled (pretty much) but Eubank never had the defining McClellan fight or the early HBO televised ko of Barklay that won Benn all his fans. Eubank got the respect
Later from many people including myself.
