I was watching some Youtubes of these guys fighting each other. I wasn't paying much attention at the time they were active, but they were incredible. You Brits should be proud. These guys could hang with any American fighter of any era, I just don't think they got the credit they deserve in the states.

They were def exiting and prob could have give any SMW in history a fight, but i think Roy Jones wouldave massacered them all no matter what the brits say.

Jones vs Benn : TKO rd 5
Jones vs Eubank : TKO rd 10
Jones vs Watson : TKO rd 8

But yeah they were def great fighters and whats better they were super exciting.

Dont forget that Calzaghe began his reign as SMW world title holder by beating Eubank in 1997.
Benn imo was the most exciting of the 3, but they appeared to be made for each other. Michael Watson was a great boxer, and if I can remember rightly, seemed to have a great defence, especially in the Benn fight, and struck when Benn had nothing left.
I havent got the words to describe Eubank! Ill leave it at "character"
