I dont believe Eubank could have beat jones at his peak. Because of the styles alone..You got to remember Jones was using "steriods" Steve collins I do fancy having a good go at it..

I dont think Jones Ducked Benn I just think they both knew it would be a Dangous fight

As for the fight - again, it kind of depends on which version of Benn we're talking about. Barring stupidity I'd back him to easily defeat the wild-swinging Benn that was stopped by Eubank and Watson. But the accurate and economical Benn that fought Gerald McClellan would be another story entirely. I think Jones, whilst still the favourite, would be very hard pressed in such a fight. I don't think I've ever seen a more furious - perhaps even maniacal - fighter in a ring than Benn on that tragic night. His drive, focus, aggression and sheer will-to-win often make me wonder whether anyone could have defeated him that evening. At the end of the fight he emitted a seemingly endless roar of pent-up hatred which seemed like something out of a Viking epic.

THAT Benn would be some test for Jones. There's no doubt that Roy had the skills to win - but Nigel had a way of taking fighters into the trenches and I'm not entirely sure that Roy would be able to overcome someone who he would practically have to kill to stop himself from being killed.
Been was always cool out of the ring, Even in the early days..He lived a few doors up the road to me in Burges Road Eastham London..He would party in Forst Gate..A very polite guy, Always had time to stop and talk..So if you are saying he wasn't level headed in the early days trust me he was..Did he have self belief in himself damn right he did...But never ****y..Benn was lucky really to have good people round him..The only bad thing was Jimmy Tibbs
I remember at the time when he was thinking about taking on Jones and quite a few people where saying that he should leave well alone..

I spoke to Benn about it, i said it was a pitty he never got a Jones fight and his reply was - Nah it was a blessing he'd have killed me! (or words to that effect!)
This was back when Roy was on top
That sounds about right

How often do these huge intercontinental matchups happen? Benn was probable a bigger draw in England then Roy was in the US for the fight to really maximize its earning potential it would of had to be in England. Can you really blame the #1 pound for pound fighter for not wanting to travel to England?

Either way Roy was only at super middle for a year before moving up so the time frame was small.
