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.

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…Comment by Rapid Counter on 10-27-2012
