20 Years ago today Steve Collins beat Chris Eubank- relive it here

FOR some it is the greatest moment in Irish sport. For those there at The Green Glens Arena, Millstreet, it is certainly the best sporting atmosphere they have experienced.

Panto villain extraordinaire Chris Eubank Jr came to Ireland to put his WBO super middleweight title on the line against Dublin’s Steve Collins in what was the English man’s 20th World title fight.

The build up was massive, the occasion even bigger and the result is now a thing of Irish sporting folklore as Collins became the first man to beat Eubank and buckled the WBO World title around his waist.
