    WBN can confirm the return of the ‘Dark Destroyer’, British legend Nigel Benn for a comeback fight towards the end of 2019.

    Speaking to son Conor, an undefeated professional in his own right, WBN were informed of a ‘guaranteed’ return to action for Benn.

    lol haven't heard of a Benn comeback for years!! No chance of it happening.

    Jonny Nelson was the last one!

    @Carl_frochh or is it someone else?

    From Conor’s Twitter, Froch would be seriously bad for his health

    Would any promoter even touch this?
    If it happens of course

    “There’s an opponent who has signed a contract. It’s a former WBC world champion and who fought only two years ago."

    Chad Dawson? Tarver? RJJ?

    They mention Bika, who fits the bill.
    Dawson is "active", RJJ fought 1½ years ago and Tarver hasn't fought for 4 years and had 2 doping violations in a row.

    Rightly or wrongly, I'm certain that Benn V Roy Jones would sell out the O2

    Yeah so won't be Tarver then for sure. I just checked and Dawson was last out in 2017 v Fonfara so would fit the bill. Like you said though he's quite active so would be a bad idea for that reason I think! Bika it looks like then. This does sound genuine though in terms of a fight happening

    Dawson's last fight was against a journeyman just a couple of months ago, after being out for over 2 years.

    I wish he'd just f**k off to be honest with you. When he referred to Conor as a white version of himself I could never take him seriously again.

    I'm sure he who cares so much about fighter safety could get the Luxembourg Boxing Federation to sanction it.
