Default Re: James Toney vs Chris Eubank At SMW

Eubank, for all his claims of being a boxer, relied much of his career on his punch and chin; these type of fighters don't age well.

There's a chance Chris might win a disputed 12 rds decision, but he gets stopped almost certainly in a 15 rds fight.
I don't believe either guy fought in the 15 rd era??? That makes one their conditioning suspect, and I am not sure what philosophy their teams would employ to prepare for a 15 rounder, they would certainly condition, train and fight differently based upon that....I would say those 3 rounds increase the chance of a stoppage 1 way or the other, but the unknown makes me hesitant to make a judgement either way based upon that.
