    And for the record, Benn, Nunn, Reggie, McClellan and Terry Norris were Pascal, Taylor, Glencoffe, Dirrell and Ward x10,000

    Graciano Rocchi was a level or two above Kessler when you look what he did to Hamsho (did v.well v Hagler) and Michalczewski (robbed blind) and being robbed badly against the great Henry Maske (who was as big in Germany as Michael Jordan was in America)

    Nunn and Reggie Johnson were more impressive against Toney than Roy Jones was for me, considering Toney was 186 v Jones and on IV drips.

    Reggie's knockdown of Toney was far more impressive than Jones Jr's, a thing of pure beauty with the feinting and timing and a CLEAN knockdown.

    Nunn stood right in front of Toney and just completely outboxed him for 10 rounds, not hopping around the ring like a bunny as Jones Jr did.

    Terry Norris was a lb4lb superstar, and McClellan the greatest puncher and described by Manny Steward as the most talented he ever had.

    He certainly was that, but relatively speaking. Marcus Beyer and Andrade were not Nigel Benn and Michael Nunn

    He was.

    He didn’t create a good first impression.

    I think he was injured though.

    I’ve still got the old Boxing Monthly magazine that had an article on it.

    Jesus froch give it a rest.... I used to like froch and enjoy watching his fights but the guy really needs to pipe down... Saying an injured kessler is calzaghes best win.... An old kessler is frochs vest win.. After a loss... And overhyped lacy... Yep... Exactly the same as bute was overhyped.

    Froch got lucky with dirrell... Dirrell fought like a girl but he still made froch look a **** hitting sweet f a all night..., jermaine Taylor was winning handily til the end, Abraham... **** past middleweight, pascal... Alright win... But b hop did it alot better.

    I don't see why he brings it up.. If they'd fought Joe would've paddled his ass... The only point froch has is that calzaghes could've faced alot better opposition which is the mark against his name

    If Chris Eubank was not known to the American boxing world before yesterday he is now. Speaking at a press conference in New York, Eubank did what no man has managed before: make Don King stop talking.

    In the process Eubank managed to upset almost everyone else at the gathering at which a galaxy of champions from all over the world met to announce a series of unification bouts, including the one between Eubank, the WBO super-middleweight champion, and Nigel Benn, the WBC holder, on 9 October.

    Undeterred by his back seat position on the podium behind such American boxing stars as Michael 'Second To' Nunn and Terry Norris, Eubank had decided that there could only be one ringmaster. Rising to his feet, he declared that he was 'simply the best' and demanded that questions be directed to him under 'parliamentary practice'.

    Sharing the full story, not just the headlines



    Catcalls from other boxers and their camps rang out and both Benn and Nunn, who holds yet another version of the title, stood up to confront Eubank. However, Eubank had seized the microphone from King's hands and the shock-haired promoter's squawks of 'Hey, I'm the guy putting up the money' were to no avail.

    Both Benn and Norris, the WBC world light-middleweight champion, left the podium in disgust. Nunn assured his fellow countrymen: 'I'll straighten this guy out if he ever gets in a ring.' As Eubank, dressed in an expensive check waistcoat, cream shirt and burgundy tie, held forth, murmurs of 'Who the hell is this guy?' went around the room. An American trainer offered: 'I think he must be one of those English guys who play polo at weekends.'

    Doubtless it will all sell tickets although even King cautioned: 'We will all need time to understand this young man.' The co-promoters of Benn-Eubank, Frank Warren and Barry Hearn, could barely conceal their satisfaction. In turn, King described Hearn as 'this amazing man' and Warren as 'more powerful than a speeding bullet and I mean that literally'. The ITV executive producer, Trevor East, was likened by King to 'Winston Churchill'.

    The King-sponsored unification series of 'real contests' will, he said, also prevent the media from casting aspersions about his past. 'I'm taking you all off the surf board of cynicism,' King said, 'enabling you to write only with glowing affection.'

    KO Magazine at the time had a huge feature on it, the Oscar and Roy Jones card from Casino Magic was only sub-feature to this and KO focused on Eubank. He called all the other fighters present 'losers' and 'undercard fighters', stating he was the man because he was the only unbeaten fighter and main eventer there, so he should be the premiere fighter in any negotiations!

    Eubank also believed that while they were all 'equal best' in the world along with James Toney, he thought he could be 'the very best' because he believes he studied his craft in NY more conclusively than the others, he was bringing back his first trainer from NY to complete the masterpiece and he believed he had a true warrior fighting within him if needed to be called upon, saying that one of his trainers was a PhD in martial arts and whenever this guy would talk to him about Samurai of the past it was as if it was a knowledge of which he already had and just needed to be reminded of. 'If another fighter in world boxing can claim this, I will not fight them. Our children need fathers.'

    Very good point regarding Bute. He was PATHETIC against Froch, looked scared to be in there. That's not some great fighter, that's a biatch in an era there was no competition.
