Eubank was at the tale end of his career, he primed very early. He was semi-retired & fought Joe at a weight he hadn't fought at in years.
Just about every super middleweight has some power. Joe may not of been feather fisted as such but quite clearly he did not hit very hard. He stopped guys from an accumulation and often the stoppages was disgustingly premature.
Its ridiculous to even claim Joe hit hard & IMO its clutching at straws when you say ''This fighter felt his punches he should know'' Fighters say a lot of things, when they do they're usually being modest or exaggerating to make themselves feel better.
