Benn - Struggling of more to be honest. Thats quite an embarassing list if we're honest.

I know your probably joking, but if that WAS the case, we could add Johnny Nelson to the list as a former crusierweight and heavyweight champ.

Michael Watson probably would have been.

That punch aside, he'd have won a wide decision against Eubank, and probably had it in him to go up to 175 too.

Probably one of the most naturally gifted British fighters ever, with power and durability to match.

Watson for me was potentially that good.

It's a bit different to ''if Kevin Mitchell.....''

Nothing compared to Allegedly's ''Amir Khan will be Britain's Sugar Ray Leonard'', mind.

I have always thought that our lack of multi weight champions even in this aphabelt age indicates the gulf in technical class between our "world level fighters" against some other countries.

Our fighters seem to get by because they have a big punch, work rate/stamina or a size difference. Its not because they are technically polished
