    He didn't. G. Rocci was like rock from head to toe, looked like a damn giant at 168!

    Robbed blind in both Maske fights and first Dariusz M fight. So a hell of a result (and performance, he was mustard that night Eubank) for Mr Eubank Sr really

    I can't recall Rocky ever being dropped until the latter stages of the second fight with Michalczewski, which was more of an accumulation/fatigue type knockdown.

    Very underrated, and with a bit more luck (and better choices) he could have had a HOF level career. Definitely one of Eubank's best wins, if not the best.

    Let's not forget Carl Thompson beating his brother Ralph in Germany too on an SD. Great fight and great performance. On the same bill Michalczewski beat Nicky Piper and it also featured a young Vitali Klitschko and Junior Witter! Who says Brits never get decisions in Germany!? Great boxing days those.

    No he didn't drop him as I recall but he did a good job at out pointing him. One of Chris s better performance s imo.
