Default Re: What is Steve Collins Problem?

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.
Eubank fought a far better fight in the first fight than the second one(where he got dominated, even after a very active year in 94. Collins would have had a great shot at beating a prime Eubank, who could look excellent in some fights and poor in others. If good, but hardly great, fighters Ray Close, Michael Watson and a few others could push him close (a few deserved the nod against him) Steve Collins certainly has a shot. Cant see the relevance in your point Carl Thompson tbh, but whatever.

Agreed on the last point though, Jones-Collins would be a farce, and I wish both of them would **** off into retirement
