    That little runt BENNE doesn’t have a prayer against a fully hydrated young CHRIS.

    Their only card last time our was the snidey brain dehydration clause which Hearns got way too high on, even restricting water intake right up until fight night ffs

    A fully fed and watered grizzled young vet stops BENNE in under six, then poses to the corner camera slightly side on, one glove above the other, arms semi folded just like his old man used to.

    I thought with him it was recreational drugs? I know he had major issues with those. Just read up and you are right. Thanks for the knowledge :).

    New date September 2 to be announced by the end of the week. Fraser Clarke Dave Allen will be on the undercard, potentially as chief support.

    Ben Whittaker said he’ll be on the undercard followed by something “big” in November.

    Smith - Eubank September 2
    Arsenal - United September 3

    Works for me.

    Does that mean Benn is getting a ban? Brilliant.

    Great news.

    Would rather see a genuine fighter like Beefy in the ring and it will be interesting to see if CEJ can redeem himself.

    Smith's trainer said that he'll be fighting on September 2 headlining even if not against Eubank. Sounds like they are waiting for the outcome of Benn's UKAD case. If it's not Eubank I hope Boxxer pay money for a world champion to come to the UK. 160 is really weak right now.

    amazing he had the career he had as he had a crippling drug problem throughout his career. He was brilliant even with that.

    Have you read Sugar Ray Leonard’s book ‘The Big Fight’?

    The big fight was the fact that he was an alcoholic his whole career. Absolutely mental. One of the top 5 of all time and an alcoholic. Crazy.

    I have not, will see on Amazon now and buy a copy, thanks for suggesting. I've read an interview with him where he speaks of the sexual abuse he suffered from his boxing coach, put it in context how a lot of people with substance misuse issues are self medicated for trauma.

    It wasn't just alcohol that Ray Leonard struggled with. He´s had a massive abuse of various substances.

    Yep, I forgot to mention the Cocaine struggles.

    Someone that you could genuinely argue is the greatest ever and he was doing that his whole career. Madness.
