    Benn would likely get outboxed in the first few rounds then Saunders gasses out and Benn stops around the 8th or 9th.

    I like Saunders...he's sort of the modern Willie Pastrano IMO.

    Benn by stoppage somewhere in the mid rounds.

    Peak 90s Benn wins by KO.

    Benn as he is today wins by TKO.

    At 160; Saunders is smart enough to do a 'Watson'. Although, as he does not hit as hard, he would take a comfortable decision.

    At 168, Benn was a very different beast, a lot smarter, I think he would be too physical for BJS, but it would be close for a while before Benn starts to dominate.

    Saunders outboxes him by a mile.

    Whatever you think of Saunders, his style and attitude, he’s a genuinely gifted fighter.
    It’s not inconceivable that he could frustrate Benn stay out of harms way and eke out a decision win.
    On the other hand Benn was an unrelenting beast and although he could be hurt, I don’t think Saunders has the real power to stop him and I’d expect Benn to catch up with him and stop him late.

    Watson didn`t punch that hard, Benn gassed v Watson and quit after being floored by a jab.

    I hope you`re joking and Benn was not at his peak at middle he was exposed by Eubank after improving slightly after being exposed by Watson, he wasn`t a good middle at all, his punches just had more effect at that weight, Saunders is far better than Benn was.

    Benn has his moments but Saunders takes it in 12. Saunders shook off good shots from Andy Lee and O'Sullivan. He can take the occasional shot from Benn. If the limited Watson could knock out Benn with the revolutionary modern techniques such as the high guard and the jab, Saunders can do it better.

    I got Saunders here. Not a foregone conclusion and Saunders is still relativley untested at world level but i think he's got the skills to outbox Benn to a close decision The waters should be a little less muddy in a few years time.
