    Eubank By KO around the 8th-10th, Park's chin was dodgy.

    I think Eubank wins, but in his pomp Park gives him food for thought and takes him to the final bell.

    Park beats no elite middleweight or super middleweight at any era. He's fits the caricature Asian fighter who can't handle the competition once he steps up.

    Eubank would preen and hiss at the Korean crowd, chest held high, moving like robocop. He'd have to do the weight right though because 15 rounds would be a struggle, and Korean judges screwed Lindell Holmes (and in the Games - both Nardiello and Jones Jr).

    I like Eubank on points, though a stoppage is plausible

    I never saw the Holmes-Park fight. Was he robbed ?

    Anyone who can find 10 consecutive seconds that Roy Jr lost in the Olympic final deserves a Nobel prize for fiction.

    Yes, though it's been a while since I saw the fight.
    Was he even hit 10 times? ;)

    Lindell was a good fighter but kind of an obscurity. I saw him outbox Frank Tate pretty clearly around 1990 or whenever that fight was

    Yup. I don't think he was ever a top 5 middleweight.

    As I've said, Park is the picture perfect caricature of the protected Asian fighter that some here accuse of Jung-koo Chang (wrongly) of having been. Every time he fought anything but a tomato can, he struggled. Heck, Na Kyung-min KTFO him.

    Really, context is king. Park's career was going nowhere, and he was on the verge of retirement when IBF was created and decided to shower mediocre Korean fighters with inaugural title fights for money and geographic visibility. That really was an embarrassing era of IBF quality.

    According to Bill Miller and Billy Gutz, Holmes won by six or seven rounds.
