    Sugar ray Leonard
    Thomas hearns
    Duran
    Callum Smith

    All at their best at middleweight except for callum vs benn at super middleweight, I was originally gonna do a benn vs the whole fabulous four but I'm fairly certain hagler would beat benn everytime so I threw Callum in there to replace him.

    Smith is far too big, long and powerful, Benn wouldn`t be able to get past the long jab and pierce the high guard, Benn`s punches never had the effect that Smith`s have at super-middle, his punches had more effect at 160, Smith is like a light heavy, it would be a 175 banger v a 160 banger. Leonard was too fast and mobile, te Hearns from the Hagler fight was a league above Benn and Duran ws too smart.

    You mean the effect that Smith’s punches had on such luminaries as Nieky Holzken and Eric Skoglund who both went the distance.

    3 fighters went the distance with Benn while he was WBC super middle champ.

    Benn scored 5 TKO`s while he was super middle champ including a scrappy stoppage oto win the title, I feel Groves was a better stoppage than all of those TKO stoppages and the manner in which he was crushed was more devastating also.

    Benn never stopped anyone as good as Groves at SMW, McClellan was stopped because of his brain injury.

    Although shipping a lot of punishment Benn was giving out plenty all the way through the McClellan fight.

    Even that McClellan would stop Groves and be favoured against Smith

    Leonard is wayyy overrated at middleweight I'd take Benn
    Hearns should take out Benn, unless he gets clipped
    Duran would outsmart Nigel
    Benn and Callum? , I'd take Benn though not confidently
