    Steve Collins has a huge chip on his shoulders.

    Holly crap, I completely forgot about Richie Woodhall, I remember his fight with Keith Holmes was pretty fun, heck, I think he did better against Roy than the Korean dude that robbed Roy.

    Eubank and Collins talking? No thanks... Roy and Calzaghe probably had to practice the art of shutting up a lot.

    Collins is like every Irish guy of his generation. A stubborn bastard!

    Eubank put some good questions to him.

    Jones came across really well.

    Shame there was no Nigel Benn.

    Note: I have not watched the video yet, but my first impression when I saw the poll was the only possible candidates for the title of goat smw are rjj, Joe calzaghe or Andre ward. Eubank was good, but not the greatest. Maybe smw goat of England lol
    The other two guys I've never heard of

    RJJ is possible the best ever. Eubank pretty much said as much. Collins comes off as a bit of a douche. Benn and especially Toney being included would have been fun... I remember that interview with Benn and Eubank and Toney was screened in calling them bums, it was pretty funny.

    Collins comes off a twat quite frankly. And tbh he was a good, tough fighter, But nothing more. Both eubank and benn would’ve beaten him prime for prime (Calzaghe would’ve easily Beat him as well). He caught them both at the end of their careers. Eubank had been on the slide for a while. The McClellan fight ruined benn

    Toney would have ruined it, yelling over everyone in some language no one understands.

    You’re probably right. Last video I saw of Toney, I could barely understand anything he said.

    Jones was by far my favourite of those guys to watch

    I think if he stayed at light heavyweight he would’ve lost his natural gifts gradually and possibly retired undefeated
