        Well if he's 'fighting' a former WBC champion it cant be Eubank. Like Calslappy - Eubank only ever coveted the WBO strap and also very similarly was afraid to go stateside.

        Its well known that Benn is potless and lost all his £ to some very serious London gangsters he thought it was 'cool' to rub shoulders with. But this comeback is madness and is something I do not want to witness.

              It's no surprise he's coming back it's been muted for a couple of years now. I don't think it will be against Eubank but the fact contracts have been signed it shouldn't be too long before an official announcment is made.

                If anyone should know how dangerous this sport can be, under the wrong circumstances...

                  --- When he was hard at it for Eubank, I noticed one of his legs very thin, as in some kinda congenital injury.

                  still the case?

                        A has-been versus one of the ugliest fighters on the planet - what a ticket seller.
