You worked fights that include all time Britsih greats. Joe Calzaghe, Chris Eubank, and Nigel Benn. Who rates as the best in your opinion?

Chris Eubank is a favorite of mine as he could fight and box and without tv cameras he is a nice guy, he took all comers, I was there when he put lead in his shorts and boots to appear to be heavier than he was for the Carl Thompson fights. He was a top class showman which all sports need after all without spectators we cant survive; but how can you ignore Calzaghe with his spotless record, buy somehow he never lit me up.

You're ganna try and soften me up and woo me with a Micky Vann opinion? The guy who i've always held a grudge against, the guy who took a point away from Pete Whitaker for a low blow the ref didn't call?

Poor effort, Atberry. Step up your game, pal. lol

I expected MUCH better.

Ive not watched anything other than clips since the year the fight took place and this is kind of what I remember.Graham getting caught more than usual,the style he used and which was normally so effective got thrown off enough to make rounds he was winning become close.I think the judges went with the champ a few times and it was enough to get Mike the win.

Mike wasn't actually champ here.It was for the vacant title kalambay had been stripped of for opting to unify with Nunn.

I thought it could have gone either way. a draw would have been the fair result.
