Forget Katie Taylor, Tyson Fury, Andy Ruiz Jnr, Deontay Wilder, Anthony Joshua, and ooohh Derek Chisora,for a minute, there’s a fella from the 90s who made news in boxing world recently and once again today.
Arguably one of the best British boxers of all time, Nigel Benn was on his way back for a dramatic comeback! The 55-yr-old ‘retired’ boxer was going to get into the squared circle one last time to lay it all out in there.
In the mid 90s, boxing was absolutely explosive with the likes of Chris Eubank, Steve Collins and the one and only Nigel Benn.
Benn, 55, recently shared a video on his social media showing him training ahead of a comeback, ended with him stating: “20 years. I’m back. I’m ready. One more time. I feel good. See you soon.”
Well the Christian fighter has just announced that his fight on November 23rd against 40-yr-old Sakio Bika has been called off due to a bad shoulder injury.
Benn has a massive fan base to this day and is truly considered a great of the sport, but his upcoming fight is off and many of those fans are happy that he won’t be putting his health at risk.
