    What a fight this would be, Stevenson was the slightly bigger guy but both fought at 168, Stevenson was never big for 175. Both big punchers neither excatly had an iron jaw. Who takes it?

    Stevenson is too big. Benn gets bombed out.

    Same way Benn got bombed out by the feared, monster punching Gerald McClellan ?? This hypothetical matchup certainly has shades of that fight to it.
    Don't ever write Nigel off against a puncher especially against a guy who got stopped in 2 by Darnell Boone.

    Benn stops the younger, green Stevenson who lost to Boone and who had to make 168. He loses to the primed 175lb. version.

    Championship level Stevenson was a Light Heavyweight. Nigel only went up to Super Middle because the opponents and the money were there.
    Nigel gets taken apart inside 6.

    Benn destroys him early at 168lbs
    Why does no one rate him? He beat Eubank second time round and Barkley inside one round and Gerald McClellan and 2 of them are miles better than Stevenson

    Stevenson was a bigger puncher than even McClellan was. I think he takes Benn out of there most likely... but if Benn survives the early onslaught, Stevenson will gas out late and that will be Benn’s best chance of winning.
    Maybe Benn has a better chance since it would be at 168 and Stevenson was drained at 68 but you never know.

    @168, Benn wins by KO in a very short war.

    I've always felt Stevenson was an extremely overrated fighter who feasted on a lackluster talent pool
