Old rivalry reignited

In their day they were the fiercest of boxing foes, producing two memorable and punishing battles that went the distance.

And it was Irish warrior Steve Collins that twice got the better of polarising showman Chris Eubank in the mid-90s.

The duo were back in each other's company this week as they got around the table with Roy Jones Jr, Joe Calzaghe, Richie Woodall and host Johnny Nelson for a Super Middleweights edition of 'The Gloves are Off'.

They both may have long since retired, but Eubank and Collins showed that the old tensions are still not too far from the surface as they discussed those battles of yesteryear.
