Default Chris Eubank got lucky against Michael Watson & Nigel Benn

In terms of the judging in the first Watson fight and Benn rematch.

Agree or disagree?

He may have gotten lucky in the first Watson Fight, I think Chris Eubank admitted that Michael Watson gave him the boxing lesson, and one of the worst beatings of his career. He said that he was the best fighter he ever faced, and that he has never given up inside the ring. "And thought he could not overcome a fighter" but he said Michael Watson made him think of them thoughts.

But in the second Watson fight. Technically Chris Eubank, answered defeat with brutality, an uppercut from the jaws of defeat. Against Nigel Benn “The Rematch”, the fight could of went ether way.

I had Eubank winning the re-match against Benn by a point the first time I scored it and then I had it dead level the second time. So I actually think that a draw was a fair score.

I did not score the Watson fight so I cannot comment on whether the decision was correct or not.

I had Benn winning the rematch 115-113. Basically most or all of the rounds Eubank won though were very close.

Why didn't these 2 fight a third time? They sold tickets, it was a close and debatable fight, and Eubank fought about 5-6 times before losing to Collins.
