"I can't wait to give him a good hiding."
Tbf, Watson and Eubank both tanned him though
It was this era that got me into boxing...all watched for free on telly.
I was a big Benn fan at 15/16 years old...back in the day you literally never knew what to expect, he was always a KO waiting to happen.
I remember a fight, maybe British title where he was getting battered and just one punch out of know where KO'd the guy...
Terrestrial television in the UK has not been free for 80 odd year
It was free when I was 15/16 - my parents paid

Just watched it there on you tube, was mad, 12 rounds of action in 2, Great stuff.
He can be as scary as he likes, he didn't back up these words. Boxers certainly weren't that scared of him.
