I WAS around @ teh time, And Benny was my man.

A true G.

A true WARRIOR.

A true puncher - with power like Foreman - for his weight.

Exactly that for me. I grew to like nigel, infact I loved him when he bashed up Douglas, then he lost all of my respect coming into the ring in a shell suit and braids posing against Watson, gets knocked out with a Jab and so I just thought of him as a bully. Eubank, because of him being the underdog and never the crowd favourite, well I warmed to him. When he had the hellacious first fight against Benn, he went up in my estimation even more and Benn, looked like the bully even more so.

That all changed against McClellan. Massive respect for nige after that, God bless Gerald McClellan.

Looking back, the thing I missed about Eubank was how tough he was. Because he tended to go on the back foot against Benn and behaved like some 19th century dandy, I always assumed he was a fancy dan. Actually, he was a fairly basic puncher, without much slickness and whose combination of a hard chin and very good power won his most important victories.

At his best, Eubank was more a Young Hungry Lion than a Slick Black Boxer.

He was stammering and couldn't find words, and he was just so blown away by the indecency of it. Hilarious.


If Eubank doesn't think something's worth answering, he won't say anything.
