Benn looked like a poor man's chang in this fight imo epsecially defensively, though as you say eubank was hardly laying a lot of precise shots on him.I'd say this fight was where the weight making really started to impact on Eubank's performances.His next few are awful to score because his offensive timing is usually completly out, but his defence generally remains strong.
Rounds 1 and 6 were probably the rounds most gave to Eubank which gave them close cards, but yeah, it's pretty hard to mount a justification for Eubank taking this one.
