I was staying in Albuferia Portugal in 87 with some mate's that were flogging time share on the strip that was being developed at the time. We went a club one night and Benn and his mates were in there, off their heads. He was an up and coming contender at the time. I'm not easily intimidated but he was unstable, you could just see it, didn't like him at all, bullying anyone who'd come near him. Loved him as a fighter but not as a man. Suppose that's what makes some fighters.

My dad was a Navy boxing champ he was a boiler man and when he came out he became a scaffolder he was a hard man he was a nasty bastd who would Knock the daylights out of me for the slightest thing
until I was 15 and I came home to find him beating my mum up I hit him over the head with the iron then punched the hell out of him he had he never ever hit me again 7 years later when he passed away it didnt bother me in the slightest

I think the same with a lot of fighters

You know what, I have read loads on all the top fighters, fascinates me, I bet 80% of them have had troubled times and psychological problems. I think thatís the underlying motivation, could be wrong?

I read one book and he said he gave up because ďI just wasnít angry anymoreĒ

I know Benn had a few demons

End up f the day, itís a sport with a lot of violence albeit they were gloves in the ring, some nasty people around who would happily beat you to near on death

I participated in fighting sports for a few years, and nothing gives as much pleasure as knocking the **** out of each other and shaking hands afterwards, thatís total respect for me, real mans game

Who wants a ****ing fight

Yeah thats him , i was only 15 when i met him , he told me he was going to london to knock the **** out of some southern softie , but 3 days before he had a brawl with doormen in york i think , he did all 4 of them but he got cut above the eye so the fight in london was called off , that southern softie turned out to be lenny mclean !! There was a documentary made about him i think its on you tube , watch it if you get chance , i will have a look for it.

I can remember him jeff, sure he fought a traveling fella and nearly killed him proper bad *******
As for benn he definitely got mixed up with the wrong people, got nicked for glassing a geezer called rolex ray, out of his nut on coke must have payed him off because it all seemed to go away
My mate had a row with paul ince and when he put it on him he went away and came back with benn who was off his rocker and started ranting and raving but luckily enough kept his hands down
Not sure why heís fighting again, could be money could be he misses it but i dont think its a good idea

That's the one mate, Gardner.

As reputations go, fearsome at the time when fists ruled the streets and not guns. I know he used to do debt collection and "other stuff", wouldn't have fancied him knocking on my door

Sounds like his sons followed in his footsteps too sadly?

That was the british title fight against john l gardner , He still holds the record of fighting for a title with the least number of pro fights 6 i think ? Spent years in prison for various things charles bronson was a mate of his , had 2 sons both in prison for 2 seperate murders ! Got an asbo and had to stay out of wakefield centre , a real character who escaped from a foreign jail and swam across shark infested waters ! Sadly died a alcoholic .

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
