Happy 50th Birthday to the 'Dark destroyer'.

 

How this man is not in the IBHOF is a mystery that only Americans can answer.

Here he is in the only fight that can compare to Hagler vs Hearns and this one is more brutal.

Nigel Benn vs Gerald McClellan (High Quality)

I'm from the USA & a HUGE Nigel Benn fan, from watching his fights on YooTooob. However, I had barely even heard of him back when he was an active fighter. Maybe it was just me, but I don't think he got a lot of media exposure here in the states.

 

Of course, I also wasn't nearly as serious a boxing fan back then, so maybe it WAS just me.

Cable-

Did you have Showtime? A lot of of USA fans who didn't have it in the mid-Nineties didn't get to see as much Benn as those of us that did.
