I haven't seen that fight in years can't bring myself to watch it knowing what happens at the end.

have you watched eubank v watson 2 pimp? thats even worse to watch because watson was absolutely ****ed at the end of the 11th and the corner put him back out for the 12th round when in hindsight its clear that the damage had already been done.

Yes I have and both fights are hard to watch. Watson's corner had no business sending him back out. The guy was clearly not all the way there and it was a damn shame.

The worst part of that fight is knowing what happened after the fight. The ambulance took him to the wrong hospital and it took 2 hours to get him on an operating table.

A really dreadful referee , Benn was and is one of my favourite fighters , but shouldnt have made it out of the 1st round.

It wasnt the knock down , but the ref pulling Mclellen away for punching!!!!

Disgraceful, but not Benns fault.

Benn sent a man into a horrible retirement by constantly barraging him to the back of the head with power shots.

There's a belief that G-Man went into the fight with brain issues as he had complained of frequent headaches since the first Jackson fight. He was also a notorious weight cutter which doesn't help matters.

Then again, lots of people get headaches and it doesnt mean they have brain damage. Who knows really?

I hate this fight and I hate Eubank-Watson 2.

Arguably the two best SMW fights ever (Liles-Littles 2 is up there) and they ended terribly.

If you want to see a powershot on the back of the head watch James Toney throw one behind Micheal Nunns head which was pretty digraceful as he was on the way to a ko.Still,Benn was rabbit punch mad against Gerald.

Terrible referee job there. Who knows what would have happened with a different ref.

I was just about to comment on that and I'm surprise there was never a warning for those rabbit punches in which I believe it significantly took a toll in the fight

Rabbid punches are allowed and actually scored in the UK
