Most famous for the man who beat Eubank first. He lost those three fights learning the trade.
Eubank was burnt out, Benn was shot (McClellan fight ruined him) Carr/Brown were Middleweights (Collins was SUPERmiddle champ when he fought them) Seillier and Cummings were third tier. He then retired rather than fight Calzaghe.
He was a mediocrity like so many Barry Hearn & the WBO made 'champion' in the 90's
Jones would have embarrassed him, peak Eubank & Benn would have beaten him, as would Barkley, Nunn, McClellan, Toney.
