That man could have been something special, but his weight cutting got the better of him.

Yeah, that left hook was pretty good. The rest though weren't flush shots at all. Good chin though. Man, I forgot how big McClellan was. Jackson was a big JMW and a good sized MW but he is dwarfed by Gerald in there. It looks like a LHW fighting a MW.

He did have an iron chin but I don't think he would have gotten past the level that he was already at going into the benn fight.

I think he got as far as his talent would have taken him.I dont think he would have beaten Toney or Roy Jones.

Not that it means much but its worth noting, he has an AM win over Roy.



Gerald's chin was brilliant but it gets over looked as people tend to focus on his bone crunching power. Shoulda been one of the greats.

Hey i love Benn but the ref saved him against G man and now look at Gerald

Gerald knew that something was wrong with his brain after round 2, but decided to continue fighting

WOW solid chin, and scary punching power at that weight class. G-Man could've been one of the greatest MWs ever.

He took some great shots and had a warrior mentality but Im not sure he would have been one of the greats. Tough to tell based on his comp.

Without doubt a very tough guy, with very good boxing ability.
I definately think he could have gone on to be something big.

And I kinda agree that the ref saved Benn in that fight, I think if that fight is in the US then the ref is stopping it, no doubt about it.
