Eubank was... a very strange fighter style wise.

Benn was a destroyer.

I guess Eubank..I thought Benn won the rematch by a point or two though.

Watson beat them both though (yes, Watson won the first Eubank fight no matter what the judges said).

Eubank.

Eubank got the better of their fights and is much more awkard and difficult for any prospective opponent. What I mean is, you know what has to be done against Benn - how do you prepare properly for Eubank? There's only so much you can do.

I think Eubank may actually take out one or two ATG's first time out.

Eubank was the more talented but Benn would fight anyone Chris cannot say that.

The pre Watson Eubank would have fought anyone. He became lazy and gun-shy as a consequence of the terrible aftermath of the Watson fight.

Benn was the more exciting fighter and he hit much harder than Eubank but overall id say Eubank just shades it.

Probably Benn. His best performances have the edge of Eubank's I reckon. Eubank had more gift decisions than Sven Ottke.*





* Nearly.

Eubanks unorthodox style made him more difficult to beat, and impossible to prepare for.

Eubank was the better fighter and probably because of intangiables. He was just so ****ing tough and unknockoutable. I think Benn was leading on the cards but he got tired and his chin gave way a little and he got stopped.

Eubank was a good fighter but he had the intangiables of an absolute legend. Right off the bat those intangiables got him wins over Benn and Watson.
