Each fighter's weakness deserves to be analysed objectively, and it seems to me you're trying to rewrite history.

Are you seriously claiming Chris' wasn't a lucky shot ? It had desperation written allover it.

Toney certainly was behind on points when he Kod Nunn, but he wasn't on the verge of being stopped himself; he was actually getting stronger. And he certainly wasn't huffin' and puffin' like Chris used to in nearly each ending of his fights.

Add the bodyshots of Toney and Chris fragile body...

It doesn't mean necessarly Toney defeats Eubank; they were both great fighters; but Eubank's weaknesses seem to play into Toney's strenghts.
