What did Nigel Benn do to Chris Eubank? Benn’s eye was swollen shut by the fifth round, and in the sixth Eubank began throwing shots at Benn who was covering up on the ropes. Benn caught Eubank with a low blow, and with no points deducted used his advantage by pounding Eubank’s body. Eubank fought back in the seventh, and with scores fairly even the fighters began the eighth round. A more wary Benn now sought to catch Eubank with flashing overhand shots followed by short hooks. Eubank was trapped in the corner when an overhand right caught him on top of the head, knocking him down. He was up quickly, claiming it was a slip, but took the eight count regardless from Richard Steele. Eubank finished the round strongly and posed and preened between the rounds. The ninth was an even round until Eubank missed with a right and Benn caught him with a left hook which landed on the unbalanced Eubank’s rear, sending him down. Standing up, Eubank circled Benn before releasing a left-right combination, and a left hook which staggered Benn. Benn survived the flurry and clinched, but a straight right from Eubank sent him into a corner, and Steele stepped in to end the flurry with five seconds left of round nine, ending what he called; “The most dramatic fight I’ve ever refereed”.
