Steve Collins was and still is Irelands best at world title level IMO but i sometimes wonder what his career and indeed legacy would have been if Ray Close hadnt had to pull out of "that" fight with Eubank?

Collins would massacre Duddy and Lee. Macklin would be competitive early on but would get stopped as well

Ridiculous statement? Did I say he would of beaten him? Where did I say he reached world class? Where did I say he would of beaten him or achieved more? I think you should read my "ridiculous statement" again and take a bit of time before you reply to it.

He hurt his opponent twice in that fight but failed to realise it.
Also he needs to learn to jab more. Would like to see a strength & conditioning coach work on explosive power with him more too.
But great learning experience for him.

Agree, he looked like he was trying to KO him from the first round aswell. Loooked absolutely exhausted from about half way through the third. He's still a bit of a raw talent.

I think he's referring to the "Duddy probably had a better chin than Collins" comment, which is bordering on ridiculous. Freddie Roach ranks Collins as the best chin he's ever seen.

How is it ridiculous. Duddy had his chin tested his whole career. Have you ever seen Duddy hurt?

The Lady who was refereeing Wards fight seemed out of her debt.
No warning for holding from either fighter and no warning for the Algerian for repeat offences on the blind side. She probably could not see it but thats because she was not moving around the ring. Micky Vann is a good ref for cheching the entire ring. just my 2 cents worth.
