Michael Watson (25-2-1, 21 KOs)
vs. Chris Eubank (27-0, 16 KOs)
June 22, 1991, Earls Court Exhibition Hall, Kensington, London, England
The undefeated Eubank was the WBO middleweight champ, with victories in the past year over Nigel Benn, Dan Sherry and Gary Stretch -- three opponents with a combined record of 66-2 before they met who called himself "Simply The Best." Fellow Brit Michael Watson had won three in a row since falling in the 11th round to "The Body Snatcher," Mike McCallum, in a WBA middleweight title fight. Both showed up in fantastic shape for this bout, which is still remembered all over the United Kingdom as an epic.
