    I think Cerdan wins this comfortably. He was a level above Benn skillwise. Benns power always give him a chance but I don't think he'd land anything too big. Thoughts?

    He only needs to land once.

    Only seen Cerdan v LaMotta. Didn't look special.

    Benn would have crushed him.

    Cerdan would win.
    Different class to Benn. And I was a Benn fan from the amateur days all the way through his career.
