    No. If your white & a black guy calls you a wigger cause you talk black slang does that make him racist?

    No, it means he's mocking you for using "black slang".

    Pointless thread. I respect both Collins and Eubank for what they did in the ring.

    Eubank was/is unbalanced this is a quote about fighting Graciano Rocchigiani in Germany

    The least offensive of the Berlin crowd's taunts in the preliminaries were chants of 'Kill the black man'.

    Fearing a riot and abandonment of the fight, Barry Hearn, whose insurance money only kicked in once the boxers actually entered the ring, was astounded to see me strolling round and round the apron outside the ring.

    'What the hell are you doing?' he hissed. 'I'm simply soaking up the hate, Barry, it's wonderful,' I said.

    If true why the bitterness over Collins?

    No, not really.

    Plus I never said Collins was a racist, just a bellend if he used racial slurs to get to Eubank.

    Don't understand the relevance of the question, and I find those "do you think x beats y if z" a bit dull, but as you addressed me directly it would be rude not to answer.
    I think a mentally and physically prime Eubank wins on the cards, then again I think Eubank in that condition also beats Calzaghe.

    But I never said I wasn't biased.

    Who gives a ****. people get so giddy about it if a white guys racist. I think it's pretty safe to say Mayweather and Hopkins and infact almost 50% of black boxers come out with the odd racist remark here or there.

    No.

    Eubank is a bit of a moron though.

    A funny moron though, so he gets a pass......
