Joe C. is one of the most interesting fighters of the last 30 years due to the divergent opinions about his skills. Some observers feel that he is the best british fighter since WWII. Other people feel that he is inferior to a prime Benn or Eubank. I feel that he is a definite Hall of Famer, and an excellent fighter- just not an all-time great. Joe "slaps" due to his hand injuries, and I believe he does this out of self-preservation. In the Eubank fight, he was throwing hard punches and turning them over. If anything, it's more impressive that he has been able to beat good fighters with limited power. CRold made an excellent point that he compares favorably to Ricardo Lopez when it comes to quality wins.
