It's time for another edition of The Boxing Bulletin's feature series, Score it!

This time we're going back to October 9, 1993 to score the controversial rematch between Nigel Benn and Chris Eubank.

The first bout had been a major upset with the underdog Eubank winning via 9th round TKO to take Benn's WBO middleweight crown. Almost 3 years later, on a cold night at Manchester's Old Trafford Stadium, with over 42,000 fans in attendance, the two heated rivals finally squared off again in one of the most anticipated rematches ever in British boxing.

Got to say that I always thought Benn won the 2nd fight. Did see something that Don King felt he got conned by Frank Warren. King had a contract that he had the right to promote the winner (don't remember how many fights for) whoever it was, unfortunately it was a draw which the contract hadn't covered! Not often Mr King doesn't feel he got the best out of a deal. :)
