Sibson too busy for Eubank. Sibbo wouldn't ko him but he'd take it on a ud.

Eubank's counter punching was at his best against come forward pressure fighters, see Benn. Eubank late KO

Sibson is never going to stop eubanks. The man stood up to the best a biggish cruiser in Carl Thompson gave him for 21 rounds, Benn couldnt do anything ....altho one was at his best during 80-84 and the other 90-93 they really fought in incomparable eras...i still think eubanks is better quality.

I fancy that the Sibbo who turned up against Salvemini, Minter & Davison takes this on points over 12 rounds and especially over 15. Good workrate, GREAT jab (often underrated by many), a good body attack & mentally hungry and tough enough to beat Eubank.

Eubank would edge it on a 'controversial' 12 round nod.

Chris was that bit more 'ring smart', but Sibbo would of given him hell.

In a 15 rounder, maybe Tony could turn it around late, and he could edge the 'controversial' decision.

yeah i agree with Booze.

Sibson was never the kind of fighter who could stay consistently sharp for a full 12-15 rounds and tended to drift a bit aimlessly between styles, or let his fundamentals slip if he got frustrated, but Eubank was never a consistently sharp type either.

It would be nip and tuck with the likely "typical" version of each showing up.Eubank fighting on the backfoot probably does have the stylistic advantage though.Sibson was at his best against fighters that didn't give him respect and that's not something you could accuse the cautious countering of Eubank to be lacking.

From what I've read it seems Sibbo was poorly managed. I heard he was pushed into both the Andries and Lee fights while suffering from injuries (wrist and elbow injuries from what I recall). It seems his team didn't have his best interests at heart.

I always take these injury alibies with a grain of salt, but Sibson doesn't seem like the type to contrive excuses for every single loss.

That being said, I really can't pick a winner here.

If you came at Tony, Like a wildman ..ala Frankie Lucas or allowed him to find your chin like Minter or Collins, chances are Sibbo's left hook, a left hook any philly middle would be proud to own, would probably terminate your evening with extreme prejudice, However treat Sibbo like a sweaty stick of dynamite, with extreme respect, and he could struggle, particularly if an elusive style is employed, i think its no coincidence that Tony had to struggle to overcome Davidson and Kaylor on points...and with Chris's boxing ability off the back foot and chin of course, he can do better...at the end of the day if the excellant (when on form) Kevin Finnegan could beat Sibbo...i think Chris can as well, i dont think Tony would like Chris's combination countering ability...Chris on points in an entertaining bout, Tony was good at slipping punches with his "Rolling Thunder" advance so did have a good jab and fast hands when letting his shots go, i i dont think there would be too much in it at the end.

good points there.

Incidentally i don't think Sibson was in his prime just yet for the Finnegan fight(finnegan was a bit past his probably).He improved technically in the 2-3 years after it.Becoming less upright, more adept at slipping punches and developing more cultured footwork.

Hi Lora - i think Sibbo certainly surprised a lot of opponents, looking at his squat bulldog
physique you'd expect an Hamsho - Antefermo type Slugger, but he had a very good Jab fast hands, good footwork, good head movement, and of course that big left hook, i think the John Collins camp certainly got the shock of their lives. Even Hagler paid Tony the compliament of treating Tony with Care for a few rounds. You can keep Cyclone Harts Left Hook - I was quite happy watching Sibbo's do the Job !
