    Well Collins grand parents on both sides were 100% true blue Irish.
    Can Benn eubank froch etc say the same about their grandparents being English? :)
    So far we have one authentic Irish champion and 3 dubious English ones. Ummmm :)

    If we are going down this path, East Africa does rather well...


    Benn, Eubank, Froch and Calzaghe identify as British; Collins, as Irish.

    Haha, no, believe me that is the sound of a Welshman. Joe's mum was also Welsh and one of the reasons she couldn't handle watching her son box is because she saw Johnny Owen, a Welsh legend, die in the ring.

    In all honesty, I can't see Groves with his dodgy stamina beating Collins.

    I dont know but what I do know is he beat George Groves infront of 80000 fans at Wembley, He also loves battered onion rings and believes the Earth is flat.

    Collins too tough for groves, and too deceptively tricky for Froch, and we know what happened with benn and eubank....

    He always gets 'Isn't it Carl?' from Adam Smith at the end of Smith's rehearsed one liners and 100% of his replies so far start with the word yes followed by a load of tripe.
