WE may be heading for a third Steve Collins v Chris Eubank fight…

That's if Eubank sees what Collins' brother Roddy has been saying about his handshake!

Roddy Collins may be more familiar in the dugout, but he's been making a splash in a new series of videos from buzz.ie.

Along with Mick Flanagan and Terry McGeehan, 'Fishing Rod' Collins hit Lough Ennell, unfortunately the fish are not biting. But Collins is.

In the latest episode Roddy, the brother of former world middleweight and super middleweight champion Steve, discusses Chris Eubank's chin and his handshake!

Roddy also reveals all about the day he went partying with Oliver Reed and how the legendary hellraiser nearly ended up in jail.

McGeehan is more familiar putting politicians bang to rights in the pages of The Star and on Independent.ie, while Flanagan runs fishing expeditions around the midlands.

One of the highlights of the series is Episode Five where Roddy reveals the truth behind the glowing complexion of people from Cabra.

In another episode Flanagan asks Roddy: "What do think of Putin?"

"I'm intrigued by him," says Collins. "He has this real harsh exterior and he rules with an iron fist in Russia. But there's always something behind it.

"I'd like to meet him and find the real Putin."

McGeehan steps in: "So you think there's a softie underneath all that?"

"I'm not saying he's a bleeding marshmallow!" says Roddy.
