    Same. I was wondering why he’s so underrated.

    Clinton Woods overshadowed his work.

    Remember when he appeared out of nowhere in order to confront Roy Jones mid-rant and the camera panned away?

    I rate him highly, fought most of the top fighters around that era, would personally have loved to see him in with a pre-McClellan Benn. Loved his work with Eubank, from the 'hypnosis' to turning up at the presser with Irish wolfounds and speaking gaelic. Tough as fuck, would have loved him to have got his RJJ fight, and had timings been a little better, Joe Calzaghe.

    a good solid fighter, no more no less

    he just happened to catch both Benn and Eubank on the slide, Calzaghe and Jones would have stopped him

    Highly. It’s nonsense to suggest he caught Eubank on the slide, he was on 43 fight undefeated streak FFS and didn’t loose to anyone not named Collins’s for another two years

    We were lucky to have spent time in his posting presence, he truly did leave before his time.
