The gung ho Benn of 1990 who lost to Eubank and Watson would storm out and try to stop Rocky quickly,as he did with Iran Barkley. He would n't be succesful though. I can see him gassing out and getting caught.


The more measured Benn of 1991-95 would probably win,taking his time,thus stopping Graziano mid/late rounds.

i think any version of benn would beat a light middle graziano.

this would be a good fight, probably a short one too.

my first thought the bigger stronger Benn, but then again Rocky's era was the best, so it could easily go in Rocky's favour too - both could be knocked out, and both were pretty tough...

I believe which everone had the ability to stay out of the others way would come out the victor here, was that Benn ? was that Rocky ?

I'll leave the answer to some of the older boys, I'm uncertain, though I usually favour Top fighters of Top Era's over Top fighters from Weaker Era's.
