Default Re: the what fights did you watch today\scorecard thread.

Continuing the Eubankian flavour of the thread, I watched and scored Eubank's second fight with Nigel Benn today.

Blatant robbery imo. Eubank's timing was terribly poor and he struggled to hit Benn with a clean shot all night. Benn's timing wasn't immaculate either, but he was slightly more accurate and active for most rounds which was giving him the edge. Nigel Benn was quite good on the defensive end as well, but Eubank's punches were nearly all telegraphed and wide of the mark without the need for Benn to do much in the way of dodging and blocking.

I can possibly see how some would score it close if anything resembling rabbit punches in the clinches weren't counted, but even then, Benn still did the better work on the outside.

My card:
Nigel Benn vs. Chris Eubank II: 116-111 Benn
Eubank: 5,11 and 12.
Benn: 1,2,3,47,8,9 and 10.
Round 6 even ( 9-9 ).
