It was a truly astonishing display of balls and courage, and one of the best atmospheres you're ever likely to see in the sport. Shame about the tragic events after mind.
Nonsense -- Eubank's perfect, almost unbelievably hellacious uppercut on Watson after being battered for 11 rounds straight until dropped - and while badly dehydrated - eclipses anything I've ever seen in a boxing ring.
