Yeah, Iíve heard of him Jeff, if he was the heavyweight, lot older than me.

He was a bit of a local brawler and knuckler mate, not to be messed with. I remember seeing one of his biggest fights, just turned his back and walked off, ref stopped it, quite a character

This has made me think about people ive met in boxing , Chris not sure how old you are but did you ever hear of paul sykes from wakefield, He has to be one of the strangest fighters i ever met as hard as nails .

No doubt about it, in his prime one of the most entertaining fighters I have seen, as well as his tear up style I used to love his rope work, moving, slipping, counter, brilliant

Thing is someone somewhere in the world will sanction it somehow. Johnny Nelson has written an article about it saying its for closure rather than aiming for another career. Hopefully neither get hurt if it does go ahead. There's talk of Shannon briggs fighting again too, he's a similar age to Benn. Such a shame these guys can't accept their careers for what they are, both very good but in the past

He did but Benn should have called that fight off he was shot at twice in the run up to that fight and did,nt train properly for it , i m very lucky that i had got to know him quite well and he was crapping himself at that time.

Benn one of my all time favourites, proper warrior, I had a signed photograph, put it up behind the bar in my local boozer

Why the hell is he fighting SB, I donít know what heís like now but I expect him to beat Benn, he has got a bit of pedigree. 55, thatís mental

Massive Benn fan like I say Jeff but Collins whooped his arse big time. Proper machine Collins

My Hero and someone i got to know quite well Nigel benn will be returning to the ring later this year at the age of 55 !! He will be fighting ex world champ sadio bika age 40 , Spent some time with Nigel in tenerife training up mount teide , Never seen a fitter bloke in my life but that was 25 years ago ! He was devastated when steve collins retired him , if he hadnt got mixed up with the infamous essex boys he would have won that fight ! Gotta say what the hell is he doing !The sport is becoming a joke if this goes ahead.

Serge Ambomo Nathan will be fighting and not the other lad I said.

Not heard of this lad before but he sure looks a tough hard lad.

Yes mate they are nasty, cut man did a hell of a job. If anyone can open them up it's wilder for sure. He will need to be so much better than last weekend.
Have you heard what pricey is up to next jeff?

I never like to say never but those cuts are bad , really bad ! Wilder in my opinion will now take all the belts , he is so much better than joshua , much more power and better defence , joshua has no defence very poor ,

The heavyweight division could belong to Wilder soon,as much I would hate that.If AJ loses rematch against Ruiz,Wilder beats Ortiz then Fury he will definitely beat Ruiz to claim all the belts
