Re: Benn, Eubank, Watson, Collins v Ward? Who has the best chance to upset SOG?
Theres no way in hell the benn who lost to watson was 75% LOl
He was a one trick pony in early 89. physically he didnt have the stamina or different gears he later developed in tenerife, he didnt have the bob and weave defence nailed,he added lateral movement later too and mentally he didnt have the IQ of later years the boxing skills.
Ward stops Watson . The beating Watson took off Mccallum is irrelevent. Mccallum was a slow burner who administered a slow torturous beating that night. Ward is far fleeter of hand and foot and watson was relativelly one dimensional he was at his best countering and against ward he would be forced to lead like he was against Mccallum.
But i would countenance that by saying its clear Watson would have improved dramatically if his career hadnt been ended in 91 just as benn did.
