Watson had this tremendous overarm right punch that seemed to take out (or at least put down) anyone it landed on, apart from Eubank (...). The awesome amateur John Beckles was taken out in 30 seconds from it, and Ricky Stackhouse and Errol Christie were down in 30 seconds from it, too. Don Lee couldn't withstand it and was busted up. He would kind of just lean to one side and let it go, only Benn kept Watson's hands high with his aggression and Mike McCallum was too cute to stay in one spot. (Ward however likes to lay on the inside sporadically....)
