Lets say, Gerald McClellan didnt left Trainer Emmanuel Steward, and we have a fair and partial referee in the Benn-McClellan bout, fight was over in 1 round, McClellan wins, who could have beaten him after,,,

I believe the G-Man would have been the greatest, he would knock the **** out of Roy Jones after, the WBC 168lbs title change hands 10 times when Benn lost to Sugar Boy Malinga in '96. and none of those title holders, Robin Reid, etc. will win against McClellan.

Frankie Liles? Steve Collins? Joe Calzaghe? McClellan would finished Calzaghe off once he put him in the canvas, unlike Bernard and Roy.

Maybe a Jones rematch where a cautious Roy runs and survived for 12 rounds to score a points win could possibly beat the Gman.

I can't stand RJ, but a 95 RJ defeats Gerald

I second that, If Gerard lands one of his bombs on Jones' chin then I think it would be over but at the same time I don't think he could of.

No offence, but he'd be chanceless against a prime Toney. He just wasn't a good defensive fighter, McClellan. Also with Toney's granite chin his punches wouldn't be half as effective as against Jackson or even Benn.

A 95 Toney, if in shape, ko's McClellan

Jones would have raped him worse than Nigel Benn did,Actually he wouldn't have given him as great a beating but he would have just tooled him,One was overrated but deserved the hype and the other was overrated and didn't deserve the hype.


I suggest you go watch HBO 24/7 with all the other noobs who know nothing about the sport or better yet go watch ultimate fighting you f*cking queer

Gman's brain was in a dangerous state as it was. His career was coming to an end. I have his career dvd, and I can see him blinking uncontrollable after fights where he received punches, even way before he became the champion. I don't know which fookin retards did the medical tests on him and cleared him to fight, but if Benn hadn't done that to him the next lad probably would have.

Jones.

I would say Toney, but Toney had left 168.

Thus the rumors that Don King payed some doctors to falsely pass his medical.He apparently failed it once.

He wasn't active or complete enough to deserve that title. His style was boring.

He was pretty active round then, and it is known as the noble art of self defense my friend!
BTW you're not wrong Toney was a hell of a fighter then but you can't dismiss Sweet Pea just because you don't like him :)

I'm not really dismissing him, I just don't think he was the nr.1 p4p fighter.

He was no 1 92 to 97.

In talks before hat.

Universally recognized after he beat Chavez.

Toney, after the Jones loss, got beaten by Montell Griffin, and he was never dedicated during the late 90s, there was a story of McClellan beating up Toney in the gym although Toney claims otherwise, and says he has a video to prove he owns the Gman.

I don't know if they'd win but both Reggie Johnson and John David Jackson were solid world class fighters around that time I think.
