Benn vs Mclellan was like Hagler vs Hearns, only longer. Brutal back & forth action. At one point, I didn't think Benn was gonna' get up, yet he not only got up, but immediately started landing uppercuts.

Incredible.

I've only seen a few other Benn fights, but they were all entertaining. The guy always seemed to really want it. Probably one of the best fighters in any division, ever.

It kills me that Hagler didn't hang on a few more years. It would have been conceivable for he and Benn to have fought, and that would really have been something.

Say, you know who kinda' reminds me of Nigel Benn, though maybe a tad slower & sloppier?

Keith Thurmon.

That was a big win over here, the papers tipped Barkley and Benn just went in and ****ed him up.
the way they fought was similar to Hagler and Hearns. They just collided, and Benn was too quick for Barkley. Nigel's career is underrated. Nigel was such a hard puncher, then he improved later on and became more than just a puncher.

Iran Barkley easily had the tools to ko Nigel Benn.His problem of course was so evident watching that fight.He fought with his hands down and chin out.Got knocked out and whinged about it afterwards.He didn`t prepare himself properly,didn`t respect Benns power and paid for it.

yeah but not during his prime

like hopkins, it's only after both these great fighter were in their forties and past their best that blinkered posters like yourself try to score points against them on britain's behalf

i don't mind if you don't like either jones or hopkins so long as you can debate your point well, but you only do it because you're british and butthurt

get over it, it's petty and pointless

why don't you, and t bag **** off out of a benn thread and start your own one wanking off about jones then.

"oooh but he wasn't ko'd in his prime"

Yeah because he didn't step up to Glen Johnson level until his miraculous chin vanishing from a crash diet.

Nowadays he sells his ass, and braincells for crack money, to the highest bidder.

But it's alrigh, when he's braindamaged you can say "he wasn't a drooling vegetable in his prime though, USA! USA! USA!"

Now, kindly **** off

yeah, a glen johnson win would've been so much bigger than his hopkins win...

if you're a bad loser, don't debate to begin with

i'm not a flag waver, i'm just speaking the truth

you just need to grow up and stop taking the achievements of others so seriously
