In 1994 (year before first Collins fight) Eubank made six defences, apart from a 7th round stoppage of Sam Storey they all went the distance, add to that rumoured weight making problems he looked jaded and old in both fights with Collins (particularly the first)
I don't think Collins would have beaten a prime Eubank (or Benn), and do you think Collins could have gone up to Cruiser and nearly beat Carl Thompson?
Either way, I hope this travesty with Jones doesn't take place now.
