Nigel Benn's Farewell Exhibitions Start on December 8

According to the Evening Gazette, former middleweight and super middleweight champion Nigel Benn is boxing an exhibition bout in Middlesbrough on Saturday, December 8. Benn, 48-year-olds, will have a move around with local white collar boxing promoter and former national amateur champion Tony Robinson at Eston Sports Academy.

The exhibition headlines an eight-bout show being sanctioned by the European Boxing Federation. Benn is boxing four farewell exhibitions around the country before he emigrates to Australia on December 17 to become a preacher. Promoter Robinson, 35, won a national Boys’ Clubs title and Daily Star Golden Gloves title during a 58-bout amateur career with Wellington ABC.

Tickets are £35 standard and £600 for a VIP table of 10, available from Tony Robinson on 07899 940230. NEWLY-formed Pallister Park ABC got their season off to a flyer with two wins from three away outings.

Ha ha, this is very amusing. It comes only a couple of months after Chris Eubank snr stated to the press that he'd like to come back and fight Nigel Benn. I gather that he contacted Benn too. I wonder…
