Just watching his fight with Nigel Benn. Good fight it was. He seems like a solid fighter. No spectacular wins on his record, but all his losses were to very good fighters. Carl Thompson, Benn, Michalczewski...

Solid enough fighter bit below top class in reality but unlucky to be about in a very strong era in Britain. Member of mensa as I recall.

Piper was a good solid domestic fighter. And yes. A member of MENSA. I wonder if he still is. I remember him taking too much punishment for my liking, in the later part of his career.

Allways remember when Benn stopped him...Nicky had the big hair doo lol and everytime Benn hit him his hair doo shook lol
IMO I allways thought Henry Wharton was the best domestic fighter in the UK :boxing:

Piper was too tall for his division. I think that was one of his major problems. If you are a really talented fighter like Hearns and can use it to your advantage, then it's a blessing. But Piper obviously couldn't, not always.

I remember Benn catching Piper with a vicious upper cut that caught Piper right on the end of the nose. It remember thinking ouch when I saw it.
