Welcome to round 2 of the BTBC’s “What if…?” project series. This time, “What if…?” takes a trip back to 1995. Roy Jones Jr. had won the supermiddle weight championship from James Toney at last years end, and Gerald McClellan had made his SMW debut against Nigel Benn, the WBC champ, in February.
What we’re going to do here, is play out the scenario where McClellan wins the Benn bout (as he should have, had a competent referee been involved), and moves on to a unification bout with Jones. That bout was big talk before the Benn fight and the question has always been asked how the two would match up in the pro ranks (McClellan defeated Jones in the amateurs)
I’ll be utilizing Title Bout Championship Boxing 🙁http://www.ootpdevelopments.com/joomla/home-tbcb.html ), as I did in our first project, and using the same criteria to come up with the official bout results.
