its nothing to go backwards and watch them fights. them youtube links are of eubank v watson IIsameway i wernt born when most of the legends were around ive gone back and watched them fights pure times. those are the best fights classics.Naz was sick but he's a bitch how can you retire after youre 1st defeat, at least comeback and try regain like a real champ.

I dont even remember watching Eubank or Benn fights I was too young. My earliest boxing memories are of Naseem's fights. I seen Benn-Eubank 1 and 2 aswell as the Watson fights and Benn-McClellan is one of my fave fights of all time (from an artistic point of view obviously, not including the tragedy). Benn-Barkley is also a great little fight.I used to be a big Naseem fan (met him quite a few years ago) but like the TS said as I got older I lost respect for him. However Hamed-Robinson is a very unreal fight lol. I dont remember the early 90's fights but I got the majority of 'em on dvd defo a great era for British boxing with great characters.

*e-spuds*i was only young, but that was the sickest fight ever!!!Both of them at the end looked MASH UP!feel sorry for Mc Clellan tho, he got a website talking about how his family have to take care of him due to his condition following the fight. it cost $70,000 a yr!http://geraldmcclellan.com/trust.html

Wasnt old enough to watch the early ones, but seen Benn v Eubank I, sick fight as was McClellan Benn.I remember Collins v Eubank, but I was a major major fan of Prince Nas. Deffo one of my sporting heroes. Mans swagger, unorthodox boxing style, power and entrance all came together to make him appear as a special fighter.How can you not mention Benn v Barkley? That was a sick fight.Your right, nuff man used to come out to swing, none of this stand-off bullshit.I remember watching Holyfield v Bowe on ITV as a yute. Wish I was old enough to watch them fights properly though
