There were many good boxers of the 90's. In my view the Super Middleweights were the best and had the best fighters that were top class. The top 5 british Boxer's of the 90's for me would be;

1. Nigel Benn= The most exciting british boxer of the 90's
2. Chris Eubank= The man you love to hate great entertainer.
3. Prince Naseem Hamed= Great value for money and had a rock hard punch for his weight class.
4. Steve Collins= The only man to beat both Benn and Eubank.
5. Joe Calzaghe= Just at the start of his career but from 93- beating Eubank you could tell he was something special.

How do you have it???????????????????

Lol, he's part Jamaican too.. The facts are he was born in West Ham, and as a young boy, was taken to Canada my his mother.. This was to start a new life after she had split from Lewis's father..
True, Lewis did represent Canada in the Olympics, but he had a green card for England too.. So for marketability and promotional advantages, it was very convenient for him to become English again.. He even visited West Ham United football club, sporting a claret & blue scarf, like the true '****ney sparrow' that he is lol..

Yeah. He was born in East London I believe...moved to Canada, where he spent most of his childhood before coming back to England after he KO'd Riddick Bowe at the 88 Olympics.
