Default Re: Nigel Benn's Best Performance

Against G-man he overcame adversity and proceeded to bully and overpower his man to a victory. It personifies the heart and grit Benn was all about. It clearly wasnt his best boxing performance but i do feel its the victory that everyone remembers for the right and wrong reasons, in no uncertain terms it its his most significant victory and finest moment between the ropes.
