Watson was pretty close to stopping Eubank in the second fight and would have done so had you know what not happend imo.

But Toney is no Watson from that night! The pressure was like nothing you've ever seen.

I don't know which fight you watched Eubank didn't cruise by Watson at all, the first fight could have gone either way the second Watson was crusing by Eubank until the ending.

As for the result of this one.

Phyiscal attributes:
Power: Eubank
Physical Strengh: Eubank
Handspeed: Toney
Reflexes: Toney
Chin: Just about level

Technical attributes
Jab: Toney
Defense: Toney (by miles)
Offense: Toney
Footwork: Toney
Skillset: Toney
Accuracy: Toney (by miles)

Toney is the clear favarote imo

Toney had more power than Eubank, admittedly. In terms of defensive reflexes though, Eubank is streets ahead - Toney's roll was all about timing for the counter. Jab? Eubank all day long. Foot movement? Eubank all day long, not remotely close.

Not that this matters particularly as styles make fights more so than physical ability. And Eubank has the style to give James fits.

Don't get me wrong, Toney is more skilled than Eubank - he's more skilled than just about any fighter I've ever seen who's name isn't Gans or Kalambay...

I'd also pick Chris to pull off the upset.

Between these two posts, it seems to me that atberry has a better feel for both guys styles and attributes...regardless of who you are picking to win.
