Default Eubank: Benn was a quitter!

Quote:
He (Ray Close) had more fortitude than Nigel Benn, more spirit, and the justification I have for saying that is that Ray was never known throughout his career to give up. However the same cannot be said of Nigel Benn, you saw that in the fights with (Steve) Collins.

Eubank trying to stay relevant in the media so he can help promote the Eubank brand (his son) I would take too much notice of these comments.

I would never call Benn a quitter, he was a warrior. But I do think he wanted out of there against Watson when he stayed down for the count from a jab.

Compared to Eubank he was a gladiator. Eubank for a boxer was a coward. End of story.

Rewatched it. He is a coward.

However, I was mainly talking about his lack of ambition in regards to his career, the biggest mark of cowardice for a boxer.

Nah, I just think he was totally ****in' shagged. I'd never label Benn as a quitter but Eubank will never surprise me with anything he says.

Eubank was a very good fighter but he's a complete joker always has been and probably always will be.
