Thought I would put this up here after watching a great Watson documentary at the weekend. For those not familiar with the story Michael Watson was one of the big 3 of british boxing in the late eighties/early 90s of Benn, Eubank and Watson. The three of them had some monster tear-ups. The second Watson/Eubank fight ended in tragedy though when Watson was decked by a horrific shot from Eubank in the 11th (who was losing by a mile at that stage) and then collapsed after the 12th rd and was severly brain damaged due to a lack of ringside medical attention. The fight above though is Benn Watson when Benn was the most feared fighter on the british scene and Watson was a huge underdog.

remember that gladiator program with Benn vs Eubank - fucking hilarious how serious Benn was taking it.

Hmm remember it vaguely, do they almost get into a fight in it and Eubank goes to the production crew "see, i told you it'd kick off"? lol

There's no reason the three of those guys shouldn't have been in the mix with the US scene at athe time - not saying they would have all won (see Watson McCallum) but there would have been some fantastic fights.
